JOB OPENINGS: Two postdoctoral positions in space physics modeling at the University of Michigan
From: Mike Liemohn, Gabor Toth, Dan Welling, and Chip Manchester

The Center for Space Environment Modeling within the Department of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering at the University of Michigan is expecting to hire two postdoctoral researchers in the near future.  The range of areas covered by these positions include solar magnetic flux emergence, CME initiation and propagation between the solar wind and Earth's magnetosphere, ionospheric outflow and its fate in the magnetosphere, impacts of precipitation on the ionosphere-thermosphere system including conductance feedback on geospace dynamics, and the development of geomagnetically induced currents. Most of this work will be directed towards the understanding of extreme space weather events. Because of the numerical focus, preferred applicants should have intimate familiarity with modeling techniques and should have expertise utilizing models to conduct research. Prior experience with model development is useful but not required. Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in Space Physics or a relevant discipline, or be expecting one before their negotiated start date.  We are seeking applicants at the postdoctoral level with an appointment for two years.  Questions about the positions can be directed to Michael Liemohn, liemohn at umich.edu <mailto:liemohn at umich.edu>, Gabor Toth, gtoth at umich.edu <mailto:gtoth at umich.edu>, Daniel Welling, dwelling at umich.edu <mailto:dwelling at umich.edu>, or Chip Manchester, chipm at umich.edu <mailto:chipm at umich.edu>. All four will be at the Fall AGU Meeting in New Orleans in December 2017.

To apply, please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and contact information for three or more references at the U-M Careers website posting for this position (job ID 150312): http://careers.umich.edu/job_detail/150312/research_fellow <http://careers.umich.edu/job_detail/150312/research_fellow>

The nominal deadline for applications is January 26, but review of applications will start immediately and the search will remain open until both positions are filled.
