(1) Jicamarca International Research Experience Program (JIREP) in Peru summer 2013 due 15 January.


From Sandra Mendieta and Jorge Chau at <jirep@jro.igp.gob.pe>.

The students will work with staff engineers and scientists on projects related to ongoing research or instrumentation development programs. Research may be conducted in neutral atmospheric and ionospheric science as well as radar/radio instrumentation and software development. Given its location, frequency of operation, and array system, most JRO's research capabilities are unique. Besides the unique research capabilities where students are welcomed to propose and run their own experiments, JRO offers a good opportunity to get hands-on-experience on different aspects of radar systems, from changing the antenna connections, improving RF components of the system, to develop sophisticated acquisition and processing programs.

A side benefit of the program is that students will get to know Peru, heir to ancient cultures and rich colonial tradition. This program is offered to junior/senior undergraduate and/or first and second year graduate students and will cover the travel expenses (to and from Lima), as well as a reasonable stipend. Given that the Observatory is located outside Lima city, transportation will be provided.

  • Application deadline: January 15th, 2013
  • Decision: February 15th, 2013
  • Starting date: Anytime between May 10th until June 30th, 2013
  • Duration: 10 weeks

More information and application/recommendation forms can be found at http://jro.igp.gob.pe/jirep/ or by contacting us at jirep@jro.igp.gob.pe


(2) Post-Doc at Penn State on Global Electric Circuit - review starts 1 Jan.


From Victor Pasko <vpasko at psu.edu>.

Communications and Space Sciences Laboratory in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University, University Park Campus invites applications for an appointment as a Post-Doctoral Scholar as part of NSF funded projects: “Electrical Connections and Consequences within the Earth’s System” and “Energetic Radiation from Lightning Leaders: Effects and Origins”. The successful applicant will work with the collaborative research team within the Pennsylvania State University in the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Colorado at Boulder, and National Center for Atmospheric Research to significantly advance understanding of electrical processes that drive the global electric circuit (GEC). A Ph.D., strong programming skills, and experience with development of numerical models in topical areas relevant to gas discharge physics and atmospheric and space electricity are required. The successful applicant must have the ability to work independently. He/she will be involved in supervision of research of undergraduate and graduate students, and is expected to document the research results in refereed journal publications and to present them at seminars and conferences. The initial appointment will be for one year with a possibility of renewal for two additional years depending on performance. Applications, including a CV and the names, e-mails, and phone numbers of three references should be sent to Dr. Victor P. Pasko, 211B Electrical Engineering East, University Park, PA 16802-2706, U.S.A. (Fax: (814) 865-7065, E-mail: vpasko@psu.edu). Review of applications will begin on January 1, 2013 and will continue until the position is filled. Employment will require successful completion of background check(s) in accordance with University policies. Penn State is committed to affirmative action, equal opportunity and the diversity of its workforce.


(3) Post-doc at Cornell in space physics and aeronomy - - reviews start 1 Jan.


From David Hysell <david.hysell at cornell.edu>.

The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Cornell University invites applications for an appointment as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate in the area of of space physics and aeronomy. The successful applicant will be responsible for pursuing research using the Geospace Facilities, the Jicamarca Radio Observatory chief among them. Experience with incoherent scatter radar will be particularly valuable, as will be strong analytic and programming skills. Duties will include organizing experimental campaigns, acquiring and processing data, developing new methods for data analysis, estimation, and interpretation, and synthesizing findings in seminar and conference presentations and journal publications. The successful applicant will also be expected to interact with faculty and students affiliated with our research group across campus and with Jicamarca. The initial appointment will be for one year with an option for reappointment contingent on performance. Applications including a CV and contact information for three references should be sent to David Hysell, 2122 Snee Hall, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA (david.hysell@cornell.edu, FAX: +1 (607) 254-4780). Review of applications will begin on January 1st and continue until the position is filled.


(4) Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS) 2013 Meeting, 24 to 28 June, 2013, in Brisbane, Australia - abstracts due 29 January at http://www.asiaoceania.org/aogs2013/public.asp?page=home.htm.


From Qinghe Zhang <zhangqinghe at pric.gov.cn>.

On behalf of the convenors, we invite you to pay attention to the session on "Dynamical Processes in the High-Latitude Ionosphere", to be held at the upcoming AOGS (Asia Oceania Geosciences Society) 2013 Meeting, 24 to 28 June, 2013, in Brisbane, Australia. The session is aiming to share our knowledge and on-going projects on the high-latitude ionosphere (especially cusp/polar cap ionosphere). Submissions on all aspects of high-latitude ionosphere and magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling are welcome, and we are looking forward to a fruitful session in Brisbane. You can know some more detail about it by finding the link at ST09 (The 9th session of Solar & Terrestrial Sciences) from the following website: http://asiaoceania.org/aogs2013/mars2/pubSPView.asp?spID=48.

Abstract submission for the AOGS Meeting 2013 is now open at http://www.asiaoceania.org/aogs2013/public.asp?page=home.htm. Please hold the date of Submission deadline, which is 29 Jan 2013.

For general information on the meeting (traveling, registration etc.), please see http://www.asiaoceania.org

Questions related to the session should be directed to one of the following convenors:

  • Qinghe Zhang, (Polar Research Institute of China, Shanghai, China, zhangqinghe@pric.gov.cn)
  • Thayyil Jayachandran, (University of New Brandswick, Canada, jaya@unb.ca)
  • Gang Lu, (High Altitude Observatory, USA, ganglu@ucar.edu)
