Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Space Physics Post-Doctoral Researcher

The Institute of Space and Atmospheric Studies 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 join the SuperDARN Canada research team (http://superdarn.ca/) and participate in the newly created International Space Mission Training Program (http://spacemissiontraining.ca/).  The successful candidate will be joining a dynamic and active research and teaching team with many international partnerships.  Areas of existing research strength of the SuperDARN Canada team are:  magnetosphere and ionosphere dynamics driven by solar wind conditions, in particular using ionospheric convection measurements from SuperDARN; theoretical physics of ionospheric plasma and irregularities; and radio wave propagation in the ionosphere.  SuperDARN Canada is part of the Geospace Observatory (GO) Canada distributed network of ground-based space physics instruments in Canada (http://www.asc-csa.gc.ca/eng/sciences/space-weather.asp).  SuperDARN Canada is also a partner with the Resolute Incoherent Scatter Radar (RISR), and there are close collaborations with the Canadian CASSIOPE ePOP mission and the ESA Swarm mission.

Qualifications:  Candidates must have successfully completed a Ph.D. in the area of space physics within the past five years.  Demonstrated expertise in data analysis of large datasets is an asset. Leadership and teamwork are important assets.  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 for up to two 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 $52,000 Canadian dollars per year.

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 at least two letters of reference to:
