Research Assistant - Planetary Science and Meteoritics
- Background in Planetary Science, Physics, Chemistry, and Math
- Programming skills (Basic C, python, matlab etc)
The research proposal is on studying meteorites and other extra-terrestrial samples in the laboratory using laboratory techniques. Visit my website to learn more about my research activities: wwww.maitrayeebose.com. The project is specific to finding the best way to study particles because samples returned from asteroids Bennu (https://www.nasa.gov/osiris-rex) and Ryugu (https://www.hayabusa2.jaxa.jp/en/) consists primarily of particles in the 5-200 micron range. My website has information about the laboratory techniques I use, along with a group picture.
I am looking for a mature, responsible undergrad, preferably a freshman or sophomore who wants to work with me for 2-3 years. Several of the undergrads I have worked with, did their Barrett's thesis with me.
I am also looking to hire particularly women and students belonging to the minority population.
Please send me an email expressing your interest, along with your CV to email@example.com.
