ASTRA LLC (Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates LLC) has an
opening for a research scientist in Ionospheric and Thermospheric physics.
Applicants are sought to assist in the development of a data assimilation
model of the global thermosphere and ionosphere based on Kalman Filter and
other techniques.  The specific areas of interest include global
thermosphere-ionosphere models for satellite drag, ionosphere-thermosphere
specification and forecast models, high-latitude electrodynamics models,
and data assimilation.  The work involves participation in several new
programs that include scientific research, model development, real-time
data assimilation, validation, and operational product development.  The
hire will also participate in writing reports and proposals.  Candidates
should have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent work experience in space physics,
mathematics, or a related field and preferably experience with FORTRAN and
C programming in a UNIX environment.

ASTRA is a small business with over 12 years of proven experience in
research and development work. Our interests include first principles
modeling, data assimilation, ground-based and space based instrument
development, and Cubesats, mostly focused towards the understanding and
specification of the ionosphere-thermosphere system, and space weather.
ASTRA has devoted a significant effort in developing real-time data
assimilation techniques for the global terrestrial ionosphere and
thermosphere as well as in the development, deployment and operation of
ground-based and space-based ionospheric monitoring systems.

Candidates should be strongly motivated and should be interested in
learning and developing new technologies.  Applications from postdocs as
well as experienced scientists and engineers (Ph. D and MS levels) with
broad-based experience and the ability to manage sophisticated R & D would
also be welcome.  ASTRA provides excellent salary and benefits and offers a
growth oriented R & D environment.

Candidates should submit a resume that includes education, experience,
publications, research background, list of funded proposals if applicable,
and two references to:
