Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in space physics (Earth’s inner magnetosphere and near-Earth’s plasma sheet). The position is a part of the two NASA-funded project, Heliophysics Living With a Star project “Response of magnetospheric keV electron population to solar wind structures” and Heliophysics Supporting Research project “Solar wind driving of kev electron radiation environment in the near-earth's space”. The successful candidate is expected to work with GOES R, THEMIS, and Van Allen Probes data on the keV electrons inside 10 RE and analyze the statistical dependencies of keV electron fluxes on geomagnetic conditions. The work will also include running the already developed IMPTAM model and conducting the validation analysis between model and data on keV electron fluxes in the inner Earth’s magnetosphere. It is a requirement to present the results at national and international conferences as well as publish the results in leading journals.

Required Qualifications*

  • PhD in Space Physics or closely related area
  • Experience with magnetospheric data analysis Python

Desired Qualifications*

  • Experience with numerical modeling of space plasma
  • Webpage development
