Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Space Physics (ePOP/SuperDARN) Post-Doctoral Researcher

The Institute of Space and Atmospheric Studies (ISAS) in the Department of
Physics and Engineering Physics at the University of Saskatchewan invites
applications for a postdoctoral research position in the area of space
physics.  The successful candidate will be part of the dynamic and active
radar physics group within ISAS, which includes the SuperDARN Canada
research team (http://superdarn.ca/).

The research will focus on the Canadian CASSIOPE ePOP mission (
https://epop.phys.ucalgary.ca/), specifically the Radio Receiver Instrument
(RRI) in collaboration with ground-based HF radars such as SuperDARN.  The
purpose of this research is to investigate transionospheric HF radio wave
propagation in the terrestrial ionosphere. The ability to integrate
multiple data sets to calibrate and support the transionospheric studies is
essential. Supporting data sets may be from the ePOP satellite itself (GAP,
MGF, CER), other satellite missions (ESA SWARM), or ground-based
instrumentation (Resolute Incoherent Scatter Radar (RISR)).  Also, the
continued development of a physics based transionospheric ray-tracing model
will be part of the analysis.

Qualifications: Candidates must have successfully completed a Ph.D. in the
area of space physics within the past five years.  Radio/radar physics
experience is essential.  Demonstrated expertise in data analysis of large
datasets is an asset.  The successful candidate must demonstrate an ability
to work in a highly collaborative, multidisciplinary team environment with
other investigators, support personnel and students. A demonstrated ability
in publication of results in the scientific literature is required, as are
strong written and oral communication skills.

Conditions: The position is for one year, renewable yearly up to two more
years, with the renewal dependent upon satisfactory progress. Salary will
follow the university standard for a post-doctoral researcher and will be
commensurate with experience, up to a maximum of $50,000 Canadian dollars
per year.

Review of applicants will begin in August, 2017 and continue until the
position is filled.

How to Apply: Applicants will submit a cover letter stating how your
background and qualifications match the position, a full curriculum vitae
(CV) detailing your education, awards, publications, research experience,
etc., and the contact information for three references to:
