Announcement
Job Announcement Text: 

The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) invites applications to fill two research associate positions to support space weather efforts at the NOAA Space Environment Center (SEC) in the areas of Solar Ultraviolet Imaging and Solar X-Ray and EUV irradiance and the impacts of solar irradiance on the terrestrial atmosphere. These positions will evaluate observational requirements, develop products and algorithms and establish calibration and validation schemes for the new sensors to be flown on NOAA satellites. SEC is embarking on a program to prepare for generating data products derived from the ?R' series of Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES-R). The GOES-R satellites will continue the GOES heritage in space weather by carrying instruments to sense the local in situ environment (magnetometer and particle sensors) as well as the Sun (X-ray sensor, EUV sensor, and EUV imager). The successful candidates will have completed Ph.D. programs in related fields. Desired experience includes at least 3 years experience in scientific research developing requirements, algorithms, documentation, and software for processing data. While full funding is anticipated, it is possible that some externally funded, independent research could be undertaken in support of the product and algorithm development. Strong communication skills and the ability to work independently are essential. Evaluation of applications will begin 6 weeks after this publications date.
