Postdoctoral researcher on Equatorial Aeronomy/Space Physics


The Jicamarca Radio Observatory, a research facility of Instituto Geofísico del Perú, is looking for a postdoctoral research associate to conduct scientific research in Equatorial Aeronomy and Space Physics with emphasis on the analysis of radar data obtained from the observatory. 

Job Summary:

The research position focuses on applying comprehensive radar (and complementary instrumentation) data analysis to conduct research on equatorial aeronomy. The successful candidate will work loosely with Dr. Danny Scipión (IGP/JRO) and Dr. David Hysell (Cornell University) at the facility where they will join a team of radar experts and have the opportunity to conduct their own radar experiments. They are expected to publish original research in peer-review journals and team with the Jicamarca staff to pursue external support for continued research.
