Space Weather Civil Servant Position at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center
An exciting Civil Servant position (permanent) is being offered by the Heliophysics and Planetary Science Branch at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) in Huntsville, Alabama. The selected scientist will conduct research and develop applications in the discipline of Space Weather, joining more than 30 other federal employees, academic staff, and contractors supporting solar physics and space weather science efforts within the Branch, which is part of the Science and Technology Office at MSFC. MSFC has significant strengths in suborbital missions for heliophysics, advanced propulsion development (including solar sails), in-house development of scientific camera systems, and numerous calibration and testing facilities. The incumbent will also have the opportunity to gain experience in the operation of the Low Energy Electron and Ion Facility (LEEIF), utilized for the development, test, and calibration of charged particle instruments.
This Research Astrophysicist position will be offered for researchers and technical authorities in Heliophysics and Space Weather (ionospheric/thermospheric/magnetospheric responses to solar and solar-wind inputs), with emphasis on the analysis of current data sets and the development of new measurement and observational techniques. The selected candidate will participate as a Principal or Co-Investigator for future investigations in Space Weather, with responsibility for leading and directing the work of multidisciplinary teams of scientists. The candidate will have opportunities to lead the development of research proposals for new activities, execute funded projects, and share accomplishments through conference participation and appropriate peer-reviewed literature.
