Job description:
We aim to join global efforts to assess the crucial role played by Antarctica 
in global climate, and the impacts of climate change on Antarctica. We are a 
multidisciplinary group of researchers (physicists, chemists, biologists, and 
engineers) from leading Chilean universities, with nationwide presence. We are 
responsible for 700 m2 of research laboratories and also have a semi-permanent 
research platform at Escudero Station (Antarctic Peninsula). Please visit:

We look for young researchers (who were awarded a Doctorate degree after July 
1, 2010) interested in joining our group as postdocs. The postdoc should carry 
out his/her own research under the supervision of one of the members of our 
group. The final version of the project should be built up by the candidate and 
one of the members of our group but we encourage you to send us your ideas (up 
to 2 pages); Antarctic campaigns can be included.
The job should start in October 2013 for one year, with the possibility of 
extension for two more years, in Santiago, Chile. The salary is 1.400.000 
Chilean pesos per month (~ USD$ 2800). Please send your electronic application 
including: a very short cover letter, CV with photo, degrees and publications; 
half page with a summary of your PhD thesis, simple copy of PhD degree 
certificate (no translation is required); and your project ideas (up 2 pages) 
to Dr. Raul R. Cordero (raul.cordero@usach.cl<mailto:raul.cordero@usach.cl> ).
Qualification:
PhD in natural sciences or engineering.
Good programming skills (Labview, or similar).
The candidate may also have experience performing ground-based solar radiation 
measurements, running 1D or 3D radiative transfer models and retrieving 
satellite products.
