Applicants would need to have a background in physical science, engineering or mathematics, as also a deep understanding of the planetary protection responsibilities.

NASA is looking for a Planetary Protection Officer to protect the planet from potential alien contamination. Yes, that's a real position - and it pays six figures. The space agency has outlined strict guidelines for its next hire.

At the initial level, it will be a three-year contract which can be extended for two more years at a later stage.

According to Business Insider, the role is super exclusive, with there being only two full-time like roles in the world - one with NASA and the other with the European Space Agency. "It's not extremely careful, but it's not extremely lax".

A USA citizen or national is the hiring preference for the position, with those from outside the US only being considered if no qualified candidate from the US applies for the job, according to the listing.

Part of the gig involves traveling to space centers and analyzing robots scheduled to be sent to other planets.
