POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE IN ATMOSPHERIC AND GEOSPACE SCIENCE, Haystack Observatory-Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences (AGS) (2 openings), to assume a position in atmospheric and geospace science at Haystack Observatory<https://www.haystack.mit.edu/>, a pioneering, internationally-recognized multidisciplinary radio science and remote sensing research center, upper atmospheric observatory, and astronomical microwave laboratory. Its AGS group operates the Millstone Hill Geospace Facility<https://www.haystack.mit.edu/the-millstone-hill-geospace-facility/>, comprising the Millstone Hill incoherent scatter radar, global GNSS total electron content (TEC) measurements, and the Madrigal distributed database system.  AGS conducts fundamental and collaborative research into the complex and highly intercoupled near-Earth space environment within the atmosphere-ionosphere-magnetosphere system. Research uses a wide variety of global observational data sets provided by incoherent and coherent scatter radars, GNSS, ionosondes, optical atmospheric remote sensing, and satellite instruments.  Will continue and advance the groundbreaking scientific investigations of the AGS group into dynamic magnetosphere-ionosphere-thermosphere coupling and lower atmosphere-ionosphere coupling processes under the influence of space and terrestrial weather; make use of existing ground-based and space-borne datasets along with other available observational and/or modeling resources; and report on scientific and application results through peer-reviewed publications, participation in scientific conferences, and direct interactions/collaborations with community colleagues. Opportunities are available to help develop Haystack science and technical proposals.

Job Requirements

REQUIRED:  Ph.D. in space science, physics, engineering, or closely related field; experience working with and analyzing complex, multifaceted geospace experimental techniques and data exploration; and evidence of software proficiency and fluency in one or more languages such as Python (preferred), MATLAB, and/or IDL.  PREFERRED:  strong publication record; knowledge of the principles of atmospheric, ionospheric, and/or magnetospheric physics; experience with numerical modeling and data assimilation, high-performance computation, and/or machine learning; firm grasp of mathematics and statistics; and familiarity with Linux.
