Job Opportunity: Postdoc position at University of Colorado LASP

The Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University of Colorado Boulder is seeking to fill immediately a postdoctoral research associate position to investigate the near-Mars space environment within the context of the Mar-solar wind interaction. The research will involve: (1) modeling of the physical processes at work in the Martian ionosphere and induced magnetosphere with an emphasis on atmospheric escape, and/or (2) analysis of the data returned from the NASA Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN (MAVEN) mission.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in planetary and space physics or a closely related field. Previous experience with programming is desirable. Interested applicants must be dedicated, highly motivated, and have a good track record of publication. The postdoctoral position is initially for one year, and may be extended, contingent upon performance and funding availability. Applications will be considered beginning June 15, 2014 and the position will remain open until filled. For specifics about the position, contact Dr. Xiaohua Fang at [email protected].
