Position description

Postdoctoral Scholars in the Department of Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences at the University of California, Los Angeles (EPSS/UCLA)

EPSS/UCLA seeks two Postdoctoral Scholars. The positions will support research in Earth’s wave-particle interactions, magnetotail dynamics, magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling.

Therefore, the incumbent is expected to demonstrate experience with spacecraft data analysis and plasma physics theory.

The initial appointment will be for a 12-month period, with the possibility of renewal subject to satisfactory performance. Salary will follow standards for postdoctoral scholars and will scale with the incumbents’ experience. PhD in physics or related fields is required by the date of hire.
