Dear CEDAR community,
A new postdoctoral position is available at Los Alamos National 
Laboratory in New Mexico, USA. An abbreviated ad follows, further 
details about the postdoc program at LANL can be found at 
Please feel free to pass this on to any individuals or groups that you 
think might be interested.


Postdoctoral researcher in Space Plasma Physics at Los Alamos National 

The Space Science and Applications group (ISR-1) at Los Alamos National 
Laboratory (LANL) seeks candidates for a postdoctoral position in space 
plasma physics. The candidate chosen for this position will be expected 
to undertake research in inner magnetospheric physics and space weather, 
specifically in the large-scale dynamics of the Van Allen radiation 
belts and the effects of wave-particle interactions on the ring current 
and radiation belts. This project will leverage data from a wide range 
of instrumentation, including the Los Alamos National Laboratory 
particle instruments at geosynchronous and medium-Earth orbit, and will 
also use numerical simulations of the inner magnetosphere.

Previous research experience in inner magnetospheric physics (radiation 
belts, wave-particle interactions) is preferred, but not required. 
Evidence of expertise in scientific programming, preferably in C and/or 
FORTRAN is desirable.  For specifics about this position please contact 
Dr. Vania Jordanova (vania at lanl.gov) or Dr. Steven Morley 
(smorley at lanl.gov). The candidates are expected to have a demonstrated 
ability to pursue independent research and work as a member of a team, 
as well as a strong record of publication. Candidates should hold a PhD 
in Space Physics or a related subject obtained within the last five 
years, or soon to be completed.

For full details of the position, and to apply, please see position 
IRC38271 at the LANL jobs website: 
http://www.lanl.gov/careers/career-options/jobs/index.php. Appointments 
are for two years, renewable for a third year. In addition to applying 
on-line, interested candidates should send their CV, publications list, 
statement of research interests, and the names and email addresses of 
three references to Dr. Vania Jordanova (vania at lanl.gov).
