Astrobiology is the study of life throughout the Universe (i.e. both terrestrial and extraterrestrial), its origin, distribution, evolution and fate. It incorporates aspects of earth science along with astronomy, planetary science, oceanography, atmospheric science, microbiology, genomics and engineering. In ESS, astrobiologists study early Earth evolution, mass extinctions, remote sensing of planets, planetary interiors, and ice-covered planets.Postdoc opportunities are available in Astrobiology!
