Internship and postdoc opportunities available at NASA Ames

News article posted on by Geert Barentsen

The Kepler/K2 Science Center at NASA Ames is now accepting applications for paid internships via the NASA Internships Portal (search for the opportunity titled "Kepler/K2 Science Center"). The program enables students to gain experience in the scientific operations of a high-profile space photometry mission. PhD and graduate students already using Kepler or K2 data as part of their research projects are particularly encouraged to apply. We encourage interested applicants to contact keplergo@mail.arc.nasa.gov before applying.

Also at NASA Ames, the NASA Postdoctoral Program is accepting applications to work on high-resolution imaging of K2 and TESS exoplanet host stars with Steve Howell and the analysis of transiting planets to be observed by JWST with Tom Greene. Interested applicants are encouraged to contact the advisor before applying.

Finally, Ames is seeking to hire a Science Communications Specialist to help share the scientific results from Kepler and K2 with the public. Interested applicants are encouraged to contact matthew.c.buffington@nasa.gov.
