POSTDOCTORAL POSITION TO STUDY FUNDAMENTAL PROCESSES IN SPACE PLASMA PHYSICS

One postdoctoral position is available at the Space and Astrophysical Plasmas Center at the Universidad de Chile through a collaborative Anillo Pia ACT1405 project.

We aim to study fundamental processes in space plasma physics related to fluctuations in the solar wind-magnetospheric-ionospheric system using theory, simulations, and data analysis. The postdocs will work on the analysis of propagation of ultra low frequency waves in the magnetosphere using the data obtained from multiple satellites and ground measurements, and relate the results with some of the theories that have been developed by members of the Center;

We offer one year positions inserted in the Space and Astrophysical Plasmas Center at the Universidad de Chile, that can be renewed by a second year depending on results.

Requirements: PhD in physics or a related discipline, ability to work and support interdisciplinary work in space plasma physics. Chilean or a resident of Chile. To start work on May 1st 2017, or soon thereafter. To apply, please email your CV and cover letter to anilloact1405@gmail.com, and include the names and contact information of three references by May 1st, 2017.
