Edwin Kite's proposals
You are welcome to implement any of the ideas proposed here, or to combine them with your own ideas. In return, I ask that you email me to avoid unneccessary duplication (for example, I may have already implemented an idea but not yet written it up).
PDFs of papers describing work underpinning these proposals may be obtained from [my homepage].
These proposals represent a small sampling of the plan for the research group, which is to constrain the processes that sustain habitable planets through studying early Mars, rocky exoplanets, Io, Europa and Enceladus.
Prospective students and postdocs are encouraged to develop their own projects aligned with this plan.
People interested in working along these lines, and who have a background in planetary science, physics, or a related field, may wish to apply for one of the [opportunities for postdocs, graduate students and staff in the new research group].
Prospective postdocs interested in planetary work at Chicago are particularly encouraged to also apply for [our prize postdoc, the T.C. Chamberlin Postdoctoral Fellowship].
