The High-speed Aerodynamics and Propulsion Laboratory at the University of Maryland, College Park has an open post-doctoral position in high-altitude (~100 kft) ﬂow measurements. The position will
involve ﬂying measurement payloads on sounding- and zero-pressure-balloon platforms, with instrumentation that may include hot- and cold-wire probes, microphones, aerosol samplers, and
particulate counters. The applicant will be expected to calibrate and test the instruments, integrate the instrumentation payload with the ﬂight platform (with some design and development work possibly
required), plan and execute launches (in a supervisory role as part of a launch team), analyze the gathered data, and summarize it in reports and scholarly publications.
The appointment will be in the Department of Aerospace Engineering, full-time, for at least one year, with the possibility of renewals pending satisfactory performance and funding. Remuneration will be competitive and based on qualiﬁcations.
The expected start date is July 2021.
