(1) GPS Ionospheric Post-Doc, The Augsburg College, MN.


From: David Murr (murrdl at augsburg.edu).

The Augsburg College Department of Physics invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in experimental space physics.

RESPONSIBILITIES: Development of ground-based networks of advanced GPS receivers for ionospheric research in the northern and southern polar regions. This project is part of a collaboration between Augsburg College, Virginia Tech, and Atmospheric and Space Technology Research Associates (ASTRA). The position will reside at Augsburg, but it is expected that the postdoctoral researcher will collaborate extensively with researchers at these institutions. Interaction with space physicists at the nearby University of Minnesota will also be encouraged. Augsburg College is a four-year liberal arts institution, and it is expected that the successful applicant will be able to involve undergraduates in his or her research in a meaningful way.

POSITION STATUS: Full-time, Limited Service (2-year) position.

QUALIFICATIONS: The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in physics or closely related field with experience in experimental ionospheric or magnetospheric research. Familiarity with basic electronics and experience with remote data collection is preferred. Must have experience in time series data analysis and publication of research results in scientific journals. Strong research and analytical skills are required. Must have the ability to work in a diverse environment, supervise and mentor students, work both independently and as part of a team, be attentive to details, and manage multiple priorities and tasks.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Open until filled.

HOW TO APPLY: To start an application, go to http://www.augsburg.edu/hr/.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Augsburg College is a private co-educational college of the liberal and professional arts and sciences, affiliated with the ELCA. The College offers an education grounded in Christian values, a diverse campus community and an exciting metropolitan setting in the heart of the Twin Cities. The College is committed to diversity and the education of students in a global perspective. Visit our web site for more information regarding Augsburg and its mission at http://www.augsburg.edu/.

Augsburg is an equal opportunity employer.


(2) June 7-11, 2010 Beacon Satellite Symposium, Barcelona, Spain, abstracts and application for limited funding support are due 15 February.


From Patricia Doherty (patricia.doherty@bc.edu).

The 2010 Beacon Satellite Symposium will be held June 7-11 in Barcelona, Spain. Dr. Manuel Hernandez-Pajares on behalf of the Technical University Catalonia (gAGE/UPC) had graciously offered to host this symposium. This meeting is an opportunity for ionospheric scientists to collaborate on the ionospheric effects on radio propagation. This meeting is primarily sponsored by the Beacon Satellite Group of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI) Commission G.

Lodging information and abstract submission information are listed at http://congress.cimne.com/bss2010. There is a limited amount of travel and registration fee assistance for students or attndees from developing countries. To apply for assistance, please describe your interest in this symposium together with a copy of your abstract to Drs. Manuel Hernandez-Pajares (manuel@mat.upc.edu and to bss2010@cimne.upc.edu) and Patricia Doherty (patricia.doherty@bc.edu).

(3) COSPAR 2010, 18-25 July 2010, Bremen, Germany, abstracts due 19 Feb. (a) Session C22: Troposphere to Ionosphere Multi-Scale Wave Coupling Processes.


From Jens Oberheide (joberh@uni-wuppertal.de).


Abstracts due 19 February 2010, http://www.cospar-assembly.org/

This symposium focuses on new measurements, modeling and theoretical studies of dynamical, electrodynamic and chemical coupling processes emphasizing planetary waves (PW), gravity waves (GW) and tides. The session is an open forum also supporting a broad range of CAWSES and other project activities from the troposphere to the ionosphere. In particular, studies in the following areas are most welcome: 1. Global structure and variability of PWs, GWs and tides. 2. Upward and downward wave-driven dynamical coupling between the troposphere and ionosphere. 3. Multi-scale waves: sources, propagation, dissipation and their effects. 4. New measurements, modeling results and analysis techniques.

Conveners: Jens Oberheide (joberh@uni-wuppertal.de), Takuji Nakamura (nakamura.takuji@nipr.ac.jp).
