Postdoctoral Researcher, Space Geodesy
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Haystack Observatory
MIT Haystack Observatory seeks candidates for the position of postdoctoral research scientist in space geodesy to participate in a NASA-funded research project to develop new approaches for reference-frame determination combining multiple space-geodetic techniques. This is a one-year appointment, with continuation to a second year subject to funding and performance. The successful candidate will be based in Westford, MA, and will collaborate closely with researchers at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University, Palisades, New York.
MIT Haystack Observatory is a world leader in the development of radio science techniques. Researchers work to understand the dynamics of physical systems from super massive black holes to the Earth’s core developing and using innovative geodetic, astronomic, geospace, and computer-aided discovery methods, instrumentation, and techniques.
The successful candidate will have completed a Ph.D. in geoscience, physics, electrical engineering, computer science, or related field. Applications from those with expertise in geodetic techniques and methods, algorithm development, computer simulations, and statistics are encouraged. Experience in combination of geodetic techniques, realization of reference frames, and atmospheric water vapor modeling are preferred.
Applications must be submitted online (see link below) and must include a statement of research interests, curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references.
The position will be open until filled. The expected start date of the position is 1 April 2017.
