Job Opportunity: Research Associate at LASP Working with the Langmuir Probe and Waves Instrument

The space physics and planetary group at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University of Colorado (CU) are involved in several current and near-term space flight missions. We invite applications for a postdoctoral research position to work with data from the Langmuir Probe and Waves (LPW) instrument on the MAVEN mission. The LPW instrument main observation regime is in the ionosphere, hence candidates with experience of data analysis of ionospheres are encouraged to apply. Also candidates experience with electric field measurement, Langmuir probes, and spacecraft charging is also encouraged to apply. The candidate will be working closely together with Dr. Andersson. The work will include improve existing software routines for data production, process the instrument data, and operate the instrument. The position will initially be a one-year contract with possible extension. Salary will be commensurate with hiring level, experience and qualifications. Evaluations will begin immediately and we will continue to accept applications. More information can be found at:
