The Department of Meteorology and Atmospheric Science at The 
Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA, seeks
outstanding applicants for a postdoctoral scholar position to work with 
the SuperDARN radar network. SuperDARN is an
international network of HF radars used for space physics research. The 
position requires Ph. D. in physics, electrical
engineering, or a related field, a background in data analysis, and will 
require travel to the radar sites including
those in Antarctica. Preference will be given to applicants with 
experimental experience in radio or radar systems, and
background in magnetospheric physics or ionospheric/thermospheric physics.

The department operates the SuperDARN radars on Kodiak Island, Alaska, 
Adak, Alaska, McMurdo Station, Antarctica, and
South Pole Station, Antarctica. We seek an energetic individual to carry 
out research using observations from the
network. In addition the successful candidate will take part in ongoing 
hardware and software developments for the radar
systems, would be expected to assist with the day-to-day operation of 
the radars including development of new modes of
operation, and assist users of SuperDARN data. It is expected that the 
successful candidate will work on projects in
collaboration with the group but will work toward developing an 
independent program of research in space physics,
aeronomy, or radio science.

Applications must be submitted electronically and include a cover 
letter, CV, statement of research expertise and
interests, and the names, addresses, and contact information for three 
references. This is a fixed-term appointment
funded for one year from the date of hire, but with the possibility to 
extend the appointment for a second year based
upon mutual satisfaction and continued funding. Review of applications 
will begin immediately. The Pennsylvania State
University’s College of Earth and Mineral Sciences takes an active role 
in building talented, inclusive, and culturally
competent workforce. Penn State is an equal opportunity, affirmative 
action employer, and is committed to providing
employment opportunities to all qualified applicants without regard to 
race, color, religion, age, sex, sexual
orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability or protected 
veteran status. State College is a vibrant
college community within the Appalachian Mountains and is within 3-5 
hours driving of major east coast cities.
