The aim of this project is to improve and refine our understanding of the formation and evolution of Mercury’s interior from current and future rotation data by developing two separate but closely related pathways, building upon the expertise within the planetary research group at the Royal Observatory of Belgium. We will extend rotation theory to include flow in the outer liquid core and develop a new thermal modelling of Mercury’s core to improve the interpretation of geodesy data in terms of interior properties. Planetary geodesy - the study of the rotation, gravity field and shape of a planet – currently constitutes the main source of information on Mercury’s interior.

The candidate will contribute to the development of one or both of the two research topics in collaboration with several planetary scientists from the ROB. The candidate will also assist in the writing of peer reviewed publications and scientific reports.
