(1) Invitation to Participate in 2010 CEDAR Workshop Sessions: Magnetosphere-Ionosphere Coupling, and High-Latitude Plasma Structures.


From: Josh Semeter (jls@bu.edu) and Jan Sojka (sojka@cc.usu.edu).

Two sessions will be convened at this year's CEDAR meeting to explore various aspects of magnetosphere-ionosphere interactions: A "Magnetosphere-Ionosphere Coupling" (MIC) session, and a revitalized "High Latitude Plasma Structure" (HLPS) session. The sessions are motivated by the emergence of new enabling diagnostics, and by the need to prepare for the forthcoming joint CEDAR/GEM meeting in the summer of 2011. If you would like to make a brief presentation in either of these sessions, please contact Josh Semeter for MIC (jls@bu.edu) or Jan Sojka for HLPS (sojka@cc.usu.edu).

(2) Lidar Post-doc at University of Illinois to be filled by 1 Sep.


From Gary Swenson (swenson1@uiuc.edu).

The Remote Sensing and Space Sciences (RSSS) group in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has an opening for a Post Doctoral position. The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in experimental work in Aeronomy, Space Physics, or related field. Among research duties, the research will be involved in operations and data analysis of the Na wind/temperature lidar at Cerro Pachon, Chile. Data analysis and aeronomical research into mesospheric dynamics and chemistry are research goals, funded primarily by research grants from the National Science Foundation. The candidate should have experience in lidar operations, especially resonant lidar. This position requires travel and participation in field experiments in Chile. Data analysis and studies will include mesospheric airglow imaging data of atmospheric waves and extrapolation of intrinsic wave parameters. The position is located on the Urbana campus, and will involve working with the RSSS faculty, staff, and students. The position is for 1 year, with a second year renewable after the first 6 months. The position is currently available, with a strong interest to fill the position by September 1, 2010. Interested applicants should contact Paula O’Connor (217 333 9705) with an electronic copy of their curriculum vitae (proconno@illinois.edu).
