   Would you please post the following Job Opening at LASP, UCB in the
CEDAR newsletter? Thanks a lot.
Best Regards,

JOB OPENNING: Research opportunities in Space Plasmas at LASP, University
of Colorado Boulder
Research Associate Position - Space Plasma Group (U. Colorado / LASP)

The Space Plasma Group at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics
(LASP), University of Colorado, Boulder (CU) invites applications for
multiple open positions for research scientists in Space Physics at
different rankings (RS-I, RS-II, or RS-III).
Research projects include:
(1) data analysis of Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission and
accompanying modeling efforts to study magnetic reconnection, turbulence,
acceleration, shocks, and/or other kinetic plasma processes,
(2) application of Machine Learning to space weather, especially Earth’s
radiation belt and ionospheric phenomena,
(3) analysis of Parker Solar Probe data to study near-Sun solar wind plasma
and field phenomena, and
(4) Mars data analysis with key interest in the Langmuir Probe and Waves
(LPW) data from the MAVEN mission.

The candidates must hold Ph.D. in Physics or similar Scientific or
Engineering discipline. The candidate should indicate their research
interests, and how they could enhance and benefit the research projects
above. Depending on the science topic, demonstration of their skills in
data analysis of particle and field observations, MHD/PIC simulation, or
machine learning is highly desirable.
Interested candidates are strongly encouraged to submit an application
before January 31, 2021.

Application Materials Required: Cover Letter, Resume/CV, Contact
information for three professional references, Unofficial transcript (if
graduated in 3 years) via the link:

The Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University
of Colorado Boulder (CU) began in 1948, a decade before NASA.  We are the
world’s only research institute to have sent instruments to all eight
planets and Pluto. LASP is associated with several departments at the
University of Colorado including Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences,
Physics, Aerospace Engineering, Geology, and Atmospheric Science. LASP is a
research laboratory that is fully equipped for space-flight instrumentation
with a qualified engineering staff, clean rooms, vacuum chambers, and
testing facilities.

The CU/LASP Space Plasma Group conducts a diverse research program
encompassing instrumentation, data analysis, simulation, theoretical
studies, and machine learning applications of space plasma physics in a
variety of environments, including planetary magnetospheres and ionospheres
as well as the solar wind.
The University of Colorado at Boulder (UCB) provides individuals with equal
access to all phases of the employment process regardless of race, color,
national origin, sex, age, disability, creed, religion, sexual orientation,
or veteran status. For the complete UCB nondiscrimination and affirmative
action policy see: UCB Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Policy
