Job Announcement Text: 

The Astroparticle Physics Laboratory of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center plans to hire a civil service research astrophysicist to conduct an independent program of research in experimental astroparticle physics with a focus on space-based studies of cosmic radiation. Primary responsibilities include developing new instrumentation and methods for detection of cosmic-ray particles, nuclei, and neutrinos, in addition to supporting ongoing programs. The candidate will define technology and mission concepts and propose them to NASA solicitations. They will develop, collect and analyze data to advance the study of extreme astrophysics using non-photon messengers. Preference will be given to candidates with a strong background in astroparticle instrumentation and experience in scientific balloon campaigns, instrument integration and calibration, and beamline testing.  Expertise in analyzing and interpreting data in a multimessenger context is also important. Applicants should demonstrate a strong record of research excellence in astroparticle physics, including research communication and publications. A Ph.D. in physics, astronomy or a related field is highly desirable. U.S. citizenship is required. The position can accommodate early to senior-level researchers with a salary commensurate with past experience.
