Applications invited for Project Scientist on project
on 'Shape, Stability and Dynamics of Granular Minor Planets'.
Introduction: Objects such as asteroids and planetary
satellites are called minor planets. Recent research suggests that
these objects may not be solid rock, but, rather, be made of sand
or pieces of rock that stays together because of internal gravity.
The project aims at employing mechanics and discrete element simulations
to understand the behavior of these objects. This understanding
is crucial as India plans space missions to the Moon, Mars, and
