Dear Colleagues,

There are several opportunities for students and young scientists planning to participate in EGU General Assembly 2014, 27 April - 02 May, Vienna, Austria:

OUTSTANDING STUDENT POSTER (OSP) AWARD PROGRAM. The Solar-Terrestrial Sciences (ST) Program Group takes part in the OSP program, whereby undergraduate and PhD students can register to have their posters take part. Abstract Submission Deadline: 16 January 2014. Full information on eligibility is at: https://www.egu.eu/awards-medals/union-osp-award/

FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR YOUNG SCIENTISTS. Support Application Deadline: 29 November 2013. Full information on eligibility is at: http://www.egu2014.eu/support_and_distinction.html

MORE FOR YOUNG SCIENTISTS. e.g. get involved with your ST Division or with the Union & sessions and events of special interest at the Assembly, to follow at: http://www.egu.eu/young-scientists/

All the very best,

Claire Foullon (OSP coordinator ST)

Norma B. Crosby (Division President ST)

(2) Positions in the upper atmosphere and space physics at Korea Polar Research Institute (KOPRI).


From Geonhwa Jee (ghjee at kopri.re.kr).

The Korea Polar Research Institute (KOPRI) invites applicants for the position of a permanent research scientist and a post-doctoral research fellow in the upper atmosphere and space science, which will be available from January 1, 2014 until filled.

KOPRI performs a world-class program of scientific research, survey and long term observations that require access to the Arctic/Antarctic or related regions in the variety of research fields including atmospheric science, upper atmospheric and space science, biology, oceanography, paleo/cryo-science etc. For these research activities, we are operating two Antarctic stations in the King George island and Terra Nova Bay in Antarctica, one Arctic station at Ny-Alesund, Svalbard, and an Icebreaker. General information for KOPRI can be found at http://www.kopri.re.kr.

The upper atmosphere and space science group at KOPRI is conducting observations for the mesosphere and lower thermosphere (MLT) region using Michelson interferometers, spectral airglow temperature imager (SATI), all-sky camera, and meteor radar in our Arctic/Antarctic stations and will start new observations for the ionosphere and thermosphere using Vertical Incidence Plused Ionospheric Radar (VIPIR) and Fabry-Perot interferometer (FPI) at our new Antarctic station in 2014. Main research objectives in the group are the lower and upper atmosphere coupling and the ionosphere-magnetosphere coupling in the polar region, in addition to the physical characteristics of the polar MLT and ionosphere-thermosphere systems. The successful candidates will be involved in the field work for the experiments in the Arctic and Antarctic stations as well as the analysis of the data obtained from these instruments in strong collaboration with several universities in Korea.

Applicants should hold a Ph.D in space physics or related field and Korean nationality is NOT required to apply for both positions. The positions are remunerated according to the Korean salary scale.
