Postdoctoral Position in Radio and Ionospheric Research

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Interamerican
University of Puerto Rico, located on the Bayamon campus near San Juan, has
an opening for a postdoctoral faculty position in radio and ionospheric
research.  Required qualifications are a PhD, relevant research experience,
and proficiency in spoken English or Spanish.  Appointments are for one
year and may be renewed for a second year, contingent on continued
funding.  The anticipated start date is mid-January 2019.

The successful candidate will participate in the development,
implementation, and use of high-frequency radio techniques, with a
principle goal of producing HF radar images of the ionosphere and HF radio
images of stimulated ionospheric turbulence, in conjunction with the VIPIR
HF radar in eastern Puerto Rico and the high-frequency ionospheric
modification transmitter at the Arecibo Observatory.  Other duties include
teaching one or two BS or MS-level classes per year.  The Bayamon campus
emphasizes innovative and effective teaching strategies.

Atmospheric research programs at the Bayamon campus also include the study
of aerosols in the boundary layer, atmospheric electricity from the
troposphere to the ionosphere, and plasma instabilities in the auroral
ionosphere.  In addition, the campus has a CubeSat program which offers
opportunities to develop collaborations and proposals to fly instruments
for ionospheric and space research, and an optical laboratory is available
on campus at the Interamerican School of Optometry.  The Arecibo
Observatory is a 90-minute drive from campus, the NOAA VIPIR HF radar,
located at the USGS San Juan Observatory, is a 60-minute drive, and the
Puerto Rico Photonics Institute is a 50-minute drive.

Applications should include a one-page cover letter, a CV, brief statements
discussing research and teaching interests and relevant experience, copies
of up to five selected publications, copies of university transcripts or
diplomas, contact information for three professional references, and a
completed Interamerican University employment application form.  The
application deadline is Friday November 9.

To obtain a copy of the application form, for information about submission
and deadlines, and for other questions, please contact Prof. Brett Isham at
bisham at bayamon.inter.edu.

Interamerican University of Puerto Rico supports equal opportunity in
employment and encourages applications from all interested and qualified
