PhD Scholarship Related to Mars Science at NSSTC

Job Description


The National Space Science and Technology Center (NSSTC) invites applications from enthusiastic, ambitious, and hard-working Emirati nationals for a graduate scholarship leading to a PhD related to Mars Science, to start in Spring or Fall 2022. Supervision of the PhD thesis will be done jointly between NSSTC and a partnering University Department (Geography, Geology, Physics, etc.). Applications for entry in Spring 2022 must be submitted as soon as possible. For entry in Fall 2021, applications must be submitted by 30 November 2021, and we will look favourably on applicants willing to join NSSTC as a Research Assistant from January 2022, to bridge the gap until the start of the PhD program. The PhD project is linked to the Emirates Mars Mission (EMM), which arrived at Mars in early 2021. The area of study will be "Building and analysing comprehensive Mars dust storm databases from 1 Martian Year of EMM observations". This project would suit a person with pronounced interest and a study background in remote sensing (both satellite imagery and quantitative data) and atmospheric and planetary science. With the imminent arrival of EMM at Mars, NSSTC is very keen to recruit Emirati nationals as PhD students in this area. The task of this PhD project is to build a dust storm database spanning at least 1 Martian Year (1 Martian Year is ca. 1.9 Earth Years) based on EMM. The database construction will start with the beginning of the EMM Science phase, scheduled for early-to-mid 2021. The basis of this database will be images by the EMM instrument EXI (Emirates Exploration Imager). The combination with quantitative data on the dust optical depth, atmospheric temperature, etc. from the EMM instruments EXI and EMIRS (Emirates Mars Infrared Spectrometer) is possible. A particular challenge is the fact that EMM will map dust storms each few hours or, equivalently, several times per day. This implies that the database has to be updated on a sub-daily basis. Likewise, this makes the database unique from existing dust storm databases. An integral part will be the subsequent statistical/mathematical analysis of dust storm characteristics such as source region, storm track and size, timing and duration, etc. The student will join the EMM science team and work alongside Emirati and international scientists to achieve the project goals. Please see also https://www.uaeu.ac.ae/en/cgs/phd-projact-2pdf.pdf for more information. This job advertisement is to select a student for the NSSTC scholarship. The accepted candidate will be supported by NSSTC for four years with a stipend of about 11,000 AED/month. For formal admission to a PhD program, the selected applicant will then need to apply for a PhD program through UAEU's College of Graduate Studies. Separate scholarships are also available to cover tuition fees - please see https://www.uaeu.ac.ae/en/cgs/scholarship.shtml for details. For further information, please contact Dr. Claus Gebhardt at claus.gebhardt@uaeu.ac.ae or +971 3 713 4487. Instructions to Applicant: Submit the following via Jobs@UAEU (please don't email): Motivation letter (ca. 2 pages). CV (ca. 2 pages). Certified University diplomas and transcripts. IELTS exam certificate. Arrange for two letters of recommendation from professionals familiar with your academic work. Copy of Passport and Khulasat Al-Qaid.


Minimum Qualification


Emirati nationality. Bachelor's and Master's degree in a relevant subject: Remote Sensing, Geography, Geology, Physics, Mathematics, Astrophysics, Space Science, Computer Science, Data Science, Meteorology, Atmospheric Science, Planetary Science, or similar. Bachelor GPA 2.50, Master GPA 3.00 (or equivalent) or higher. IELTS Academic 6.5, assessed in the last two years (unless some exception applies). Full PhD admission requirements can be found at https://www.uaeu.ac.ae/en/cgs/admission.shtml.


Preferred Qualification -

This position will fall under the supervision of NYUAD-CGSB’s director, Dr. Stephane Boissinot, Professor of Biology and P.I. of the NYUAD Evolutionary Genomics Laboratory.


The Post-Doctoral Researcher will combine -omics approaches and field experiments to (1) determine the role of population structure, demography and  hybridization in shaping genetic diversity in invasive and native populations of weevils; (2) determine the genetic bases of adaptation in invasive populations; (3) link genotypes and phenotypes across levels of organization among populations adapted to different habitats. Candidates must have a strong background in various –omics approaches (genomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, metagenomics). Since data and samples will be collected in populations from both the invasive (Middle-East, Europe, South Asia) and native (South East Asia) ranges, candidates must have an interest in field work and a taste for travel. 


The NYUAD-CGSB has access to state of the art equipment for sequencing, microscopy and high-throughput screening and well-equipped core facilities for conducting any kind of chemical or biological analyses. The candidate will be part of a team of 5 Post-doctoral Associates in the research group of Prof. Boissinot, who are working on a diversity of research projects focused around adaptive evolution and the evolution of genomic structure and function.


To be successful in this role you MUST possess the following to be considered:


PhD in Biology from an accredited university (completed on or before 1 September, 2022)

A strong publication record with first-author experience

Experience in -omics approaches

Expertise in population genetics

Strong interpersonal skills with the ability to liaise with external stakeholders, collaborators and students.

Previous experience in the following is DESIRABLE but not essential:


Experience in working with insects

Experience in insect physiology

Experience in field research

Ability to lead and conduct multiple, possibly divergent, research projects simultaneously

Mentoring of undergraduate students in a research setting

Ability to plan, allocate, and monitor research budgets for projects

This position will begin September 01, 2022 as a two-year contract, renewable depending on funding availability and performance. Note that a later starting date is possible. The role comes with an attractive salary and benefits package, including housing, medical insurance, annual home leave allowance and (if relevant) dependent school fees; salaries are tax free in the UAE. Questions regarding specifics for this position may be directed to stephane.boissinot@nyu.edu.  All applications MUST be submitted through Interfolio. Applications should include a 1-2 page cover letter that must respond to the required and desired experiences described above, and a copy of a current CV; any publications listed in the CV should have DOI or hyperlinks provided. The cover letter should also describe the relevance of the candidate’s experience for the position.


The deadline for application is Sunday, 15 May, 2022, at 23:59 EST. Review of applications will commence thereafter, with interviews conducted in early June. Only those applicants selected for interview will be contacted.
