Modeling of Upper Atmospheres of Earth and Mars
The successful candidate will have experience with first principles modeling of physical systems, and will have a Ph. D. in plasma physics, atmospheric and space science, fluid dynamics, dynamic meteorology, or an appropriate branch of engineering. At ASTRA, you will develop new capabilities for existing first principles models of the ionosphere, thermosphere, magnetosphere, magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling, field-aligned currents, and global convection. There is also the opportunity to apply your skills to modeling of the Martian upper atmosphere. Applicants with experience developing or running Fortran codes on high-performance computers are particularly encouraged to apply.
