(2) PhD student positions in Space Physics at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, FL.


From Anatoly V. Streltsov (streltsa at erau.edu).

Three Ph.D-scholarships available for 2013 selection in Space Physics area in Embry-Riddle Engineering Physics Ph.D program .

The Department of Physical Sciences at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) at Daytona Beach, FL invites applicants for 2013 Ph.D. graduate study program in the field of space plasma physics. The program includes full funding (20,000 USD stipend plus free tuition), training and education of up to 3 candidates in the fields of space plasma physics, magnetohydrodynamics, and electromagnetism. It focuses on preparation of young scientists for development of comprehensive geophysical models and highly efficient numerical algorithms describing electromagnetic waves and wave-particle interactions in the Earth’s magnetosphere and the ionosphere and utilizing and developing techniques for analyzing single and multi-spacecraft data. Students will apply results from their educational/research projects for interpretation of geophysical data collected by ground stations and satellites in several high-profile NASA and NSF programs, such as Space Weather Forecast, Radiation Belts Remediation and Active Ionospheric Experiments. Currently the Aviation and Aerospace Engineering Program at Embry-Riddle is ranked #1 in the USA by US News, and the Physics Department provides excellent conditions for studying modern geophysics including a high-performance computational facility on campus. For further details about ERAU, Physics Department and our Ph.D. program visit http://www.erau.edu and http://daytonabeach.erau.edu/coas/physical-sciences/index.html. For specific questions regarding this program contact Profs. Anatoly V. Streltsov (streltsa@erau.edu) or Katariina Nykyri (nykyrik@erau.edu), Department of Physical Sciences, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, 600 S. Clyde Morris Blvd., Daytona Beach, FL 32114, USA.


(3) Faculty Positions, Boston University Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering -due 31 December.


From: Joshua Semeter <jls at bu.edu> via SPA Newsletter on 14 November.

The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) at Boston University is seeking candidates for several anticipated faculty positions. All areas and ranks will be considered. Of particular interest are entry-level and mid-career candidates in instrumentation and analog/digital design. Candidates with research interests that transcend the traditional boundaries of ECE are strongly encouraged to apply, including potential collaborations with BU’s multidisciplinary Center for Space Physics at http://www.bu.edu/csp.

Applicants interested in growing a vibrant university program in space instrumentation or small satellite technology are particularly welcome. Joint appointments with other BU departments and with the Division of Material Science & Engineering and Division of Systems Engineering are available for candidates with appropriate experience and interests. Qualified candidates must possess a relevant PhD, and have a demonstrable ability to teach effectively and develop a funded research program in their area of expertise. Women, minorities, and candidates from other underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply. Applications are submitted online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/1981

The application deadline is December 31, 2012. For further information, go to http://www.bu.edu/ece/about/employment/facultysearch

Boston University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.


(4) Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Space Science at the University of Texas at Dallas.


From Phil Anderson (Phillip.Anderson1 at utdallas.edu).

The University of Texas at Dallas invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Atmospheric and Space Sciences in the Department of Physics and the W. B. Hanson Center for Space Sciences. A strong space-based and ground-based observational program in the ionosphere and thermosphere presently enables a robust research program in space sciences. We seek to expand the program capabilities with the addition of expertise in computational modeling, solar physics and solar wind-magnetosphere interactions. The successful candidate should have a PhD in space sciences or physics with an emerging record of research accomplishment and a strong commitment to teaching, at both the undergraduate and advanced graduate level. Interest and/or experience in instrument development is a plus. Appointment will be made at the assistant or associate professor level, appropriate to the experience of the candidate

The University of Texas at Dallas, located just north of Dallas in Richardson, Texas now has an enrollment of nearly 20,000 students. It has been designated by the State of Texas as one of seven emerging universities to be encouraged to become major research campuses.

Evaluation of applications will begin immediately. Indication of gender and ethnicity for affirmative action statistical purposes is requested as part of the application.

Applicants should submit their current curriculum vitae with a complete publication record, a detailed research plan, a teaching plan, and five reference letters via the ONLINE APPLICATION FORM available at http://go.utdallas.edu/pnj121102

Questions can be addressed to the chair of the search committee, Phil Anderson, at Phillip.Anderson1@utdallas.edu
