(1) Solicit participation in CEDAR Grand Challenge Workshop on Coupling.
>From jeffrey.thayer at colorado.edu.

To the CEDAR Community,

The CSSC has implemented the first Grand Challenge (GC) Workshops for the
2014 CEDAR meeting. These are workshops whose topics have broad scientific
interest, will last four years, and will be tied to a tutorial lecture in
the plenary session each year. Below are details of one of the
CSSC-selected GC Workshops called MLT-X, or MLT extended. More formally
this GC Workshop addresses: Coupling and Transport Processes from the Upper
Mesosphere through the Middle Thermosphere (80-200 km)

For this first year, the workshop will be organized based on science
imperatives and establishing science goals that will advance the MLT-X
field and establish the direction for the subsequent years. We encourage
participation of the broad CEDAR community to present ideas and engage in
scientific discourse on advancing our understanding of the MLT-X region.
More complete descriptions can be found on the CEDAR 2014 meeting wiki,
and a website will soon be available to track progress and add content.

Workshop Specifics:

Year 1: MLT Extended [MLT-X] Diverse Processes and Science Goals
<br>Wednesday, June 25  2014  -- Kane 130
<br>10 a.m. – noon; 1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
<br>Conveners: Jeffrey Thayer, Chet Gardner, Gary Swenson

Related CEDAR Talks:

*Monday, June 23, CEDAR Prize Lecture, “Atmosphere-Ionosphere Coupling by
Tides and Planetary Waves”, Jeff Forbes from 8:45 – 9:30 a.m.
*Wednesday, June 25, GC MLT-X Tutorial, Tim Fuller-Rowell from 8:15 - 9:15

Workshop Format: Short presentations / Round Table Discussion
<br>Workshop Duration: 4 hours


* What is the role of the neutral gas in coupling with the plasma to
establish the predominant state of the Earth’s upper atmosphere and
ionosphere between 80 and 200 km?

* How do wave-induced transport and turbulence influence the structure,
composition and circulation of Earth’s upper atmosphere between 80 and 200

This GC Workshop follows an NSF-sponsored Workshop held in Chicago 15-17
May 2012 where over 50 scientists gathered to explore ways to advance
understanding of the interaction of our atmosphere with space (
http://rsss.csl.illinois.edu/workshop ). The workshop resulted in the
formulation of an Observatory for Atmosphere-Space Interaction Studies
(OASIS) and two final reports: OASIS-Exploring the Interaction of Earth's
Atmosphere with Space and OASIS-Engineering and Technical Supplement. These
reports are now available for downloading from the Chicago Workshop website
and some copies will be available at the CEDAR workshop.

Please submit interest in participation to Jeffrey.thayer at colorado.edu

(2) Postdoc Position at University of Colorado LASP.
>From xiaohua.fang at lasp.colorado.edu in 5 June SPA Newsletter.

The Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University
Colorado Boulder is seeking to fill immediately a postdoctoral research
associate position to investigate the near-Mars space environment within
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 xiaohua.fang at lasp.colorado.edu.

Applicants must apply via http://www.jobsatcu.com/postings/83112 and
complete the Faculty/Exempt Professional and EEO Data (application) form,
and upload the following required documents: (1) cover letter, (2)
curriculum vitae/resume, (3) list of three references, with complete
information, from whom an official written letter of recommendation will be
requested by the hiring unit at the appropriate time during the search, (4)
proof of highest degree earned.

The University of Colorado is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to
building a diverse workforce. The University of Colorado Boulder conducts
background checks on all final applicants being considered for employment.

(3) PhD Student Position due 10 June at IPGP, France (Ionospheric
Seismology, Ionosphere).
>From  Elvira Astafyeva <astafyeva at ipgp.fr> in 5 June SPA Newsletter.

The Department of Planetology and Space Sciences of the Institut de
du Globe de Paris (IPGP, http://www.ipgp.fr) invites applications for a PhD
student position in the field of the ionospheric seismology and the
fundamental ionospheric studies. The 3-year contract will be funded by the
European Research Council (ERC) in the framework of the ERC Starting Grant
project “SIREAL”. The expected starting date is 1 September 2014.
Ionospheric seismology is a modern inter-disciplinary branch of geophysics
that aims study ionospheric response to large earthquakes, tsunamis,
volcanic eruptions and explosions. One of the recent innovational
applications of the ionospheric seismology is the use of ionospheric
measurements in addition to the “traditional” seismological observations
estimations of parameters of a seismic source. The main subject of the
proposed work will be the development and the improvement of the existing
model of co-seismic ionospheric perturbations, starting from the ground and
till the ionosphere. The final aim is the inversion of parameters of
source from ionospheric observational data. The work will include both
experimental studies and modeling of the ionospheric response to
earthquakes. For additional inquiry do not hesitate to contact Dr. Elvira
Astafyeva (astafyeva at ipgp.fr)

Requested Profile:
* Master Degree in Geophysics or Physics or related field
* Good background knowledge of ionosphere/atmosphere physics, Earth
Sciences, seismology
* Excellent abilities in programming
* Good knowledge of English, both oral and written

Applications (CV, a copy of Master Diploma, a short description of Master
work, motivation letter and 2 reference letters) should be sent to Dr.
Elvira Astafyeva (astafyeva @ ipgp.fr). The deadline of application is 10
June 2014.
