*Space plasma postdoctoral position

A space plasma data scientist postdoctoral position has become available 
at the CNRS LPC2E laboratory for the analysis of /in situ/ data from the 
ESA's Rosetta mission.

The research activity will be focused on multi-instrument data analysis 
of the induced magnetosphere of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and its 
interaction with the solar wind, based on measurement from the different 
instruments of the Rosetta Plasma Consortium, with a particular focus on 
the dynamics of the ionized cometary environment and its interaction 
with the solar wind (waves, instabilities, structures).

The LPC2E laboratory (CNRS, located in Orléans, France - 1h south of 
Paris) is a member of the Rosetta Plasma Consortium, as responsible for 
the RPC-MIP (Mutual Impedance Probe) experiment (PI: P. Henri), designed 
to measure the plasma density, in order to characterize the plasma 
environment of comet 67P/CG, together with the other experiments of the 
Rosetta Plasma Consortium (RPC). Experiments similar to the RPC-MIP 
instrument onboard Rosetta will be launched with future space 
exploration missions, such as BepiColombo (towards Mercury) and JUICE 
(towards Jupiter and Ganymede).

Required skills:
- Physics and Mathematics skills (plasma / fluid dynamics);
- data analysis, signal processing, statistics;
- computational skills (IDL, matlab or equivalent);
- team work and interactions with international research teams.

Potential candidates are invited to send a CV + publication records + 
cover letter through the CNRS job portal 
(https://emploi.cnrs.fr/Offres/CDD/UMR7328-PIEHEN-001/Default.aspx) or 
directly to pierre.henri at cnrs-orleans.fr

The position is opened until closed (with some preference for a start 
between September 2017 and January 2018). The initial contract is for 1 
year, with a possible extension for a second year.
