Early Career Researchers

AstrobiologyOU crosses the traditional academic disciplines and brings together expertise in science, technology, governance, international development and education, and so do our Early Career Researchers.

Spanning all five disciplines fellows, post-docs and PhD students alike work in a wide range of areas studying microbiology, geochemistry, geology, atmospheric chemistry, international development, space governance, space industry, minerology and instrumentation.
