Dear Colleagues,

We invite applications for a postdoctoral research position at University of Alaska Fairbanks. This postdoc will apply big data techniques to several decades of ground and space observations to improve our understanding and predictions of geomagnetically induced currents. The postdoctoral research is part of a 4-year, 4-million-dolloar project situated at both UAF and the University of New Hampshire to enhance their expertise in space science with machine-learning techniques. The postdoc will also have the opportunity to be involved in the space weather underground program (SWUG) that works with local high school students to build, deploy, and analyze ground magnetometers.

The appointment is for 3 years with the potential for renewal. PhD in physics, space physics, computer science, or related discipline is required. Candidates with experience in machine learning are highly desirable. Interested applicants should submit the following materials by email to Prof. Hyunju Connor (hkconnor at alaska.edu <mailto:hkconnor at alaska.edu>):
A cover letter describing background, qualifications, and experience relevant to the position
A full curriculum vitae (CV) - detailing education, awards, publications, research experience, etc.
Contact information for three professional references

Review of applications will begin Oct 1, 2019 and continue until the position is filled. Start date in Jan – Mar 2020 is desirable. For questions or additional information, contact Prof. Hyunju Connor at hkconnor at alaska.edu <mailto:hkconnor at alaska.edu>.  Details of the Space Physics and Aeronomy research group at Geophysical Institute can be found at https://www.gi.alaska.edu/research/space-physics-and-aeronomy <https://www.gi.alaska.edu/research/space-physics-and-aeronomy>.  A second postdoctoral position will also be available at UNH; contact Prof. Connor for details.
