The University of Texas Center for Aeromechanics Research has a postdoc position available to develop a three dimensional DSMC simulation of Pluto's extended atmosphere. A researcher in the field of planetary atmospheres with a strong background in programming, especially on parallel architectures, is desired. Knowledge of the direct simulation Monte Carlo method or related molecular-based modeling would be very helpful.
Candidates should have a PhD in a relevant discipline and a strong interest in upper atmospheric physics. Position is available immediately.
To apply, please contact David Goldstein at david(at)ices.utexas.edu.
