Open Date:
Jan 19, 2021
Description:

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Clemson University invites applications for a postdoctoral position in atmospheric and space physics under the mentorship of Professor Jens Oberheide. The position is focused on analyzing mesospheric water vapor variability from SABER and how wave-driven residual mean circulation changes impact the composition of the thermosphere as observed by GOLD. Research duties include comparative diagnostics using the WACCM-X model.

Qualifications:

The position is suitable for applicants with a background in numerical modeling and/or data analysis. Preference will be given to applicants who have experience with middle and upper atmosphere satellite analysis, and held a PhD in physics or another relevant field for no more than five years or expect to graduate in 2021.


Application Instructions:

All applications received by February 20, 2021 are guaranteed full consideration; however, applications will continue to be reviewed until the position is filled.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications, dissertation abstract, a clearly articulated statement of research interests of no more than 3 pages excluding references, and the names and contact data of three references as a single PDF to http://apply.interfolio.com/83013.
