Postdoctoral position in atmospheric and space physics at Clemson University

Description

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Clemson University invites applications for a postdoctoral position in atmospheric and space physics under the mentorship of assistant professor Xian Lu. A successful applicant will pursue research on Earth’s middle and upper atmosphere and/or ionosphere broadly aligned with Prof. Lu’s research interests that can be found at http://xianl.people.clemson.edu/index.html

The position is suitable for applicant who held a PhD in atmospheric science, space physics, fluid dynamics, applied math, or another relevant field for no more than five years. Applicants with the research experiences in the numerical modeling and/or data analysis in one or both of the following fields are preferred: 1) Dynamics of the middle atmosphere, including wave-mean and wave-wave interactions; 2) Magnetosphere-ionosphere-thermosphere coupling at high latitudes.

The anticipated start date is February 2019; some flexibility is possible on the specific time of arrival. All applications received by January 1, 2019 are guaranteed full consideration; however, applications will continue  to be reviewed until the position is filled. The initial appointment will be for one year with the option for yearly renewal for up to three years based on performance and availability of funding.
