[Met-jobs] PhD Graduate Assistantship at the University of Alaska Fairbanks

From Richard Collins <>
Date Fri, 19 Oct 2018 12:20:07 -0800

A graduate research assistantship is available in the Department of Atmospheric 
Sciences at the University of Alaska Fairbanks for a PhD student. The 
assistantship is part of a project investigating dynamics and coupling of the 
Arctic atmosphere and geospace that employs resonance and Rayleigh lidars. 
These lidars are operated as part of a suite of lidar, radar and imaging 
instruments by a team of researchers conducting meteorological and space 
weather studies at Poker Flat Research Range (PFRR). Rocket-borne 
investigations are also conducted at PFRR in coordination with the ground-based 
instrumentation.  The successful applicant will work with a new sodium 
resonance wind-temperature lidar system that is operating at PFRR and have the 
opportunity to further improve the system as well as the scientific analysis 
and interpretation of the lidar measurements.
