Postdoctoral Research Positions

The Space Physics Group in the Department of Astrophysical Sciences, Princeton University, is expanding and anticipates offering postdoctoral or more senior research positions in experimental/observational space physics.

The Space Physics Group carries out research in many aspects of space physics (aka heliophysics), and currently leads NASA’s Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) mission, the Parker Solar Probe (PSP) Integrated Science Investigation of the Sun (ISOIS) instrument suite, and the Interstellar Mapping and Acceleration Probe (IMAP) mission. The successful candidate(s) can play a major role in 1) the development of the experimental capability of the group and development of space flight instrumentation for IMAP, 2) the analysis and publication of SEP observations from ISOIS, and 3) the analysis and publication of ENA observations from IBEX, and/or other funded space physics research. Preferred qualifications include having prior experience in the development of space flight instrumentation, analyzing these type(s) of particle data, the proven ability to lead/participate in the rapid development and publication of numerous excellent research articles.
