Europa Mission Design Postdoc
New ideas are all around us, but only a few will change the world. That’s our focus at JPL. We ask the biggest questions, then search the universe for answers—literally. We build upon ideas that have guided generations, then share our discoveries to inspire generations to come. Your mission—your opportunity—is to seek out the answers that bring us one step closer. If you’re driven to discover, create, and inspire something that lasts a lifetime and beyond, you’re ready for JPL.
Located in Pasadena, California, JPL has a campus-like environment situated on 177 acres in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and offers a work environment unlike any other: we inspire passion, foster innovation, build collaboration, and reward excellence.
The postdoc position is for trajectory design and optimization for interplanetary missions, particularly for missions in the Jovian system. This work may also require the development of new mission design capabilities.
Dr. Jon A. Sims, Supervisor of the Outer Planet Mission Analysis Group, will serve as JPL postdoctoral advisor to the selected candidate. The appointee will carry out research in collaboration with the JPL advisor, resulting in publications in the open literature. Collaborators will be other mission designers, including in particular Tim McElrath and Stefano Campagnola, who are leading the Europa Lander mission design work.
Candidates must have a recent PhD in Aerospace Engineering, Astronautical/Aeronautical Engineering, Physics, Mathematics, or related technical discipline. Broad knowledge in one or more of the following fields: astrodynamics, mission design, trajectory design and optimization. Experience designing interplanetary missions, particularly for missions in the Jovian system. Candidates who have received their PhD within the past five years since the date of their application are eligible. Postdoctoral Scholar positions are awarded for a minimum of one-year period and may be renewed up to a maximum duration of three years.
