    Summary: Postdoctoral position in Applied Computational Physics. The Primary Design and Assessment Group (X-4), in the Applied Physics Division, is seeking several postdoctoral candidates interested in computational physics research in the areas of hydrodynamics, material science, plasma physics, nucleonics, and compressed matter physics. Research may involve experiments to validate physics models and multi-dimensional computer codes in shock compression and high energy density regimes. Experiments to be designed, modeled and analyzed may range from small-scale laboratory setups to larger integrated experiments utilizing high explosives, electrical pulsed power such as the Atlas or Z pulsed power facilities, or lasers, such as Trident, Omega, and NIF. A wide range of diagnostics may be involved including X-ray and proton radiography, such as available at the DAHRT and LANSCE facilities. The tremendous computing resources of ASCI (the Accelerated Strategic Computing Initiative) are available to be used in this research. Some areas of particular interest include high explosive modeling, equations of state, dynamic material strength and failure behavior, charge transport, and simulation of hydrodynamic instabilities and turbulence. Collaboration with universities and laboratories worldwide is encouraged, and joint postdoctoral appointments with LANL experimental divisions such as LANSCE are possible. In general, the research will be related to Laboratory programmatic efforts, but the emphasis for postdocs is on unclassified work for publication.

    Required Skills: The ability to obtain a DOE Q Clearance, which normally requires U.S. citizenship.

    Education:  A Ph.D. in Physics, Engineering, Applied Mathematics, or a closely related field completed within the last five years or soon to be completed is required.

    TWO POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS IN SPACE PHYSICS

    Two Postdoctoral Fellowships in Space Physics at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics, Uppsala, Sweden.

    Position 1:
    Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship financed by the Swedish Research Council for studies of Space Plasma Physics and the coupled Solar Wind - Magnetosphere - Ionosphere System with the four ESA Cluster satellites.

    The goal of the project is to investigate how microphysical plasma processes transport and concentrate mass, momentum and energy, and how such processes are important for large scale properties of space plasmas and magnetospheres. Presently our studies include investigations of quasistatic electric fields, plasma waves, wave-particle interactions and charged particle energization. Regions of interest include boundaries of the magnetosphere, the cusp and the auroral region. Our group has Principal Investigator responsibility for the Electric Field and Wave instruments on the Cluster mission. We work with data from all instruments on Cluster and from other space-born and ground-based instruments. We also lead the data analysis software development within the Cluster Wave

    Experiments Consortium.
    Experience in combining advanced data analysis with theoretical modelling is an advantage. The successful candidate will be involved in extensive international collaborations. We are located together with the group responsible for co-ordination of Cluster and ground-based observations and co-operate closely with this group.

    Position 2:
    Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship financed by the Swedish National Space Board for studies of the coupled Solar Wind - Magnetosphere - Ionosphere System with multiple instruments on the ground and in space. The goal of the project is to investigate how the interplanetary medium, the Earth's magnetosphere and ionosphere interact with each other, and to understand the processes controlling the flow, storage and release of mass, energy and momentum in the coupled system. Emphasis is placed on the role of the magnetic field, guiding particles and three- dimensional current flow in the magnetosphere, in particular in the cusps, the polar caps and the auroral regions of the near-Earth space and their corresponding magnetic projection onto the high latitude ionosphere. Our group works with data from the ESA Cluster satellites, the EISCAT facilities, the SuperDARN radars and other space- born and ground-based instrumentation. We are responsible for the overall coordination of ground-based observations with Cluster.

    Experience in geophysical data analysis (in particular radars), familiarity with relevant methods and programming skills are an advantage. We have a very rich international collaboration with other groups in the EISCAT Associate countries and the Cluster community. The successful candidate will also plan and conduct observational campaigns involving travel to Spitzbergen and Northern Scandinavia. We are located together with the Cluster PI-group responsible for the Electric Field and Wave instruments on Cluster and co-operate closely with this group.

    Both positions: Candidates should have completed a PhD within the last 3 years. The positions are available at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics, Uppsala Division, located at the Ångström Laboratory in Uppsala, Sweden, from early 2002 for one year, with the possibility of an extension, depending on the future funding situation. Closing date for applications is January 31, 2002. Applications should include CV, copies of undergraduate and PhD degree certificates, names of and contact info for two professional references, and reprints of up to 4 selected publications. Applications for position 1 should be sent to Mats André (mats.andre@irfu.se, tel +46-18 4715913) and for position 2 to
    Prof. Hermann Opgenoorth (opg@irfu.se,

    POSTDOC / GRADUATE STUDENT

    Postdoctoral and Graduate Student Research positions are available for a four-year U.S. Department of Energy/petroleum industry funded project at the Lab for Computational Geodynamics (LCG) at Indiana University. The inter-disciplinary project involves integrating seismic, well log and other data with 3-D basin modeling, and developing the information theory shell program to do so.

    Applicants should have experience in one or more of the following: finite element modeling, information theory/geostatistics, basin analysis, seismic or well log analysis, inverse problems and software development. Activities will include further development and implementation of existing and new rheologic, multiphase fluid flow, thermal maturation, and other phenomenology for our 3D reactive-transport-mechanical basin simulator Basin.RTM, and TROPY. TROPY is the information theory shell program that automates the integration of Basin.RTM with data.

    The work at the lab also involves applying the models to a number of basins worldwide. Data are gathered from a variety of sources are organized for input into TROPY. The overall goal of Basin.RTM/TROPY project is to improve the accuracy and efficiency of finding petroleum resources and to assess risk/uncertainty of producibility and reserves in place.

    LCG has been developing simulators for over 20 years. Our models are based on nonlinear dynamics of fundamental chemical and physical processes. It is the comprehensiveness of our Basin.RTM simulator and the information theory framework that underlie our advanced, forward-looking E&P strategy. More of our work can be view on our website www.indiana.edu/~lcg.

    The information theory/crustal modeling technology is also being used to address other fundamental problems of geology. In particular, it has allowed us to create a virtual time machine that uses the present data to probe tectonic and other aspects of the geological past.

    Starting salaries for the postdoc positions are negotiable, depending on experience. Qualifying graduate students will be appointed as Research Assistants, and paid competitively. All enquiries and resume should be forward to: Ortoleva@indiana.edu. During the AGU meeting, please leave a message at the career center for Anthony Park. <
