The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Clemson University invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral position in atmospheric and space physics under the mentorship of Professor Stephen Kaeppler. A successful applicant will pursue research focused on analysis of high latitude incoherent scatter radar data with an emphasis on understanding E-region neutral winds, Joule heating, and auroral electrodynamics. The position is suitable for applicants with a background in data analysis, incoherent scatter radar, and a strong publication record.
The anticipated start date is early Fall 2019; some flexibility is possible on the specific time of arrival. The initial appointment will be for one year with the option for a renewal into the second year.
Experience programming in Python and/or Matlab is preferred.
Preference will be given to applicants who have held a PhD in physics or another relevant field for no more than three years or expect to graduate in Fall 2019.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications, a clearly articulated research proposal of no more than 5 pages excluding references, and the names and contact data of three references at http://apply.interfolio.com/64918. Reference letters will only be sought for short-listed candidates.
All applications received by August 15th, 2019 are guaranteed full consideration; however, applications will continue to be reviewed until the position is filled.
