POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE, Haystack Observatory, to play a significant role in the Geodesy Program and collaborate on and contribute to the research and technical development of geodetic methods and systems. Haystack Observatory has been a world leader in the development of radio-frequency space geodetic techniques for over four decades. Its research includes studies of the solid Earth, cryosphere, climate, atmosphere, and oceans. Haystack Observatory has a principal role in NASA's Space Geodesy Project, developing the next-generation Very Long Baseline Interferomtery (VLBI) systems for geodesy. Other ongoing projects at Haystack include space weather and ionospheric monitoring, ultra-high resolution imaging of super massive black holes, low frequency imaging of the Sun, Computer-Aided Discovery and development of novel instrumentation for astronomy and geoscience.
REQUIRED: Ph.D. in geoscience, physics, electrical engineering, computer science, or related field; demonstrated ability to effectively communicate research results in the form of peer-reviewed research journals articles and oral presentations; outstanding scientific research ability; excellent communication and programming skills; and willingness to work with a team. Preferred areas of expertise include geodetic techniques and methods, algorithm development, computer simulations, and statistics. Consideration will be given to those who offer a strong grounding in and experience with linear algebra, matrix methods, linear model theory, inversion techniques, and the development of scientific computer code; and in the areas of modern space techniques for geodesy, especially those that emphasize a combination of geodetic techniques, realization of terrestrial reference frames, or atmospheric water vapor modeling. Job #14435
The appointment will initially be for one year, with possible extension to a second year, subject to performance and availability of funds.
Position will be based at Haystack Observatory in Westford, MA, but will collaborate closely with researchers at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO) of Columbia University and will visit LDEO on occasion.
MIT is an equal employment opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, genetic information, veteran status, ancestry, or national or ethnic origin.
