The Solar System Department of the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía-CSIC ( (Granada, Spain) is offering a postdoctoral research position in the TECHSS group led by Luisa Lara. Our research group focuses on observational and theoretical studies related to Solar System Formation being intensely involved (at Co-PI and Co-I level) in the technical development and scientific exploitation of instrumentation on board different space missions, such as Bepi-Colombo (ESA-JAXA), EnVision (ESA), and Comet Interceptor (ESA-JAXA).

We seek an outstanding candidate with experience in the science of small solar system bodies, either theoretical or observational, to take a leading role in our team in cometary science-related research. In particular, the successful candidate is expected to actively participate, in collaboration with group members, in the research associated with the preparation and exploitation of the Comet Interceptor mission, in which our group is involved in the development of four instruments (CoCa, MANIaC, OPIC, and EnVisS).

The post will remain open until filled, expecting candidate incorporation as early as possible. The initial contract will last up to the end of our current funded research project, 31st of August 2026, with a total duration depending on the incorporation date.

Interested candidates can send his/her CV and a brief description of his/her research interest to Luisa Lara (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Dear colleagues,

1) The Planetary Science team at the University of Alicante (Spain) is issuing a 2-yr postdoc position in the frame of a coordinated national project with Dr. Jens Ormö at CAB-INTA in Madrid. The project is called CRATERS.The UA leg is more focussed on statistical work and numerical modelling with application to small bodies and related to the DART (NASA) and Hera (ESA) space missions. Please, don't hesitate to ask for more details.

2) Find attached a list of other (pre- and) postdoc positions to join our group. Most calls will open this fall. Our group is currently involved in the DART and Hera missions, but our research interests span from collisional evolution to statistics, dynamics and internal structure of small bodies (asteroids, comets and TNOs). Candidates with observational background are also welcome. Some positions need to be backed by our research group and Institute, so, please, contact me if you are interested.

Feel free to forward this to potentially interested people.

Thank you very much for your attention.
