Postdoctoral position in atmospheric and space physics

A postdoctoral position within the field of atmospheric and space physics is 
available at the Department of Physics at the Norwegian University of Science 
and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway. The duration of the appointment is 2 
years, with the possibility of renewal. The work will be within the Atmospheric 
and Environmental Physics group to examine the observational evidence for solar 
and energetic particle effects on neutral atmosphere chemistry and dynamics. 
Atmospheric radar, airglow and radiometer data will be examined for such 
signatures using both ground-based and satellite platforms. The position will 
be part of the Birkeland Centre for Space Science (BCSS), a Research Council of 
Norway international collaborative Centre of Excellence. Hence the position, 
located at NTNU, will provide abundant opportunities for scientific cooperation 
with both the international and Norwegian space-science communities.
