One postdoctoral position in Space Physics

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in Space Physics. The project aims in the development of statistical tools for the study of solar energetic particle events in the framework of space weather applications. The duration of the position will be 11 months. Applicants with previous experience in data analysis of solar particle events are particularly encouraged to apply. In addition, demonstrated computing and modeling capability in IDL and MATLAB will be considered an asset. The successful candidate is expected to be highly motivated and will work under the supervision of Dr. A. Anastasiadis at the Institute of Astronomy, Astrophysics, Space Applications and Remote Sensing (IAASARS) of the National Observatory of Athens.
