Two research positions (experiment and theory) at UCLA - due 31 May

I) Associate Researcher and/or Full Researcher, Experimental Space Plasma Physics, Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics, UCLA

UCLA solicits applications for one or more Researchers at the Associate or Full level, in the field of experimental Space Plasma Physics, in the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics. For more information about the institute visit: http://www.igpp.ucla.edu

The institute's Space Physics Center carries out investigations of the solar wind, and magnetospheres, ionospheres and atmospheres of Earth and planets. The successful candidate will have completed significant independent research in space physics beyond the Ph.D. level and will have a strong track record of space hardware development. Research using the recently launched THEMIS mission dataset or other space physics missions is expected to be complementary to development work in space physics instrumentation. The successful candidate will participate actively in a diverse and broad space physics research environment across UCLA, spanning basic plasma theory, simulations, space plasma physics data analysis, data visualization and space mission design. The successful candidate is expected to strengthen or complement UCLA's space borne, ground based or laboratory experimental research geared towards understanding of space plasma phenomena. Applications should include a full CV, a short statement of research interests, and names of at least three individuals familiar with the applicant's work.

Applications should be sent to: Jessica Hernandez-Nunez, Personnel Manager, 3823 Slichter Hall, IGPP, UCLA, Los Angeles, CA 90095-1567. Inquiries should be directed to: jessica@igpp.ucla.edu or by phone: (310) 825-1580. Deadline for applications is May 31, 2007. UCLA is an Equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.

II) Assistant or Associate Researcher Space physics theory or phenomenology Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics, UCLA

UCLA solicits applications for one or more Researchers at the Assistant or Associate level, in the field of Space Plasma Physics theory and phenomenology, within the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics.

For more information about the institute, visit: http://www.igpp.ucla.edu. The institute's Space Physics Center carries out investigations of the solar wind, and magnetospheres, ionospheres and atmospheres of Earth and planets. The successful candidate will have demonstrated independent research in space physics by using data from recent space physics missions and by bringing together an appropriate mix of theoretical and numerical tools for interpreting such data. In particular we encourage candidates with experience in Sun-Earth interactions, magnetospheric, ionospheric or ground based phenomenology. The successful candidate is expected to work on spacecraft and ground based data obtained from the recently launched THEMIS mission.

For information about THEMIS please visit: http://themis.ssl.berkeley.edu or http://www.nasa.gov/themis. It is also expected that the successful candidate will participate actively in a diverse and broad space physics research environment across UCLA, spanning basic plasma theory, simulations, space physics phenomenology, data visualization and space mission design. Applications should include a CV, short statement of research interests, and names of at least three individuals familiar with the applicant's work. Applications should be sent to: Jessica Hernandez-Nunez, Personnel Manager, 3823 Slichter Hall, IGPP, UCLA, Los Angeles, CA 90095-1567. Inquiries should be directed to: jessica@igpp.ucla.edu or by phone: (310) 825-1580. Deadline for applications is May 31, 2007. UCLA is an Equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
