The International Space Science Institute (ISSI) invites applications for a position of Director. Under the leadership of the Executive Director, each of the three Directors of ISSI provides the inspirational scientific environment of the Institute in her/his area of research, namely, (i) Earth Observations, (ii) Physics of the Solar System and Planetary Sciences, and (iii) Astrophysics and Cosmology. The directors are the driving force behind the various activities taking place at ISSI in their fields of research: scientific workshops, forums, working groups and international teams. Their recognized scientific stature ensures the visibility and guarantees the high scientific standards of the Institute.
The International Space Science Institute (ISSI) is seeking to appoint a post-doctoral researcher for 2 years primarily to work on a Horizon 2020 project, MiARD, the Multi Instrument Analysis of Rosetta Data.
Forum Report: Monitoring the Evolution of Coastal Zones Under Various Forcing Factors Using Space-based Observing Systems
This paper is an outcome of the Forum on "Monitoring the Evolution of Coastal Zones Under Various Forcing Factors Using Space-based Observing Systems” (/www.issibern.ch/forum/costzoneevo/) held at ISSI in October 2016 (convened by J. Benveniste, A. Cazenave, N. Champollion, G. Le Cozannet and P. Woodworth).
First Determination of Saturn’s Deformation by Tides
Using several thousand images of Saturn’s moons recorded by the Cassini orbiter (NASA/ESA), an ISSI team led by an astronomer of the Institute of Celestial Mechanics and Calculation of Ephemerides within the Paris Observatory (Obs. Paris/CNRS/UPMC/Université Lille 1) has detected small fluctuations in the gravitational field of Saturn. Available online in the journal Icarus, these results follow from a series of extremely detailed investigations undertaken by this team that focus on deepening our understanding of the Saturn ecosystem. This new vision of Saturn’s evolution is also described in the form of an 8-minute movie animation.
