Postdoctoral Research Associate
University of New Hampshire This postdoc will apply big data and machine learning techniques to several decades of ground and space observations to improve our understanding and predictions of geomagnetically induced currents. The postdoctoral research is part of a 4-year, 4-million-dollar project conducted in partnership between the University of New Hampshire and the University of Alaska-Fairbanks (UAF). The postdoc will also have the opportunity to be involved in the space weather underground program (SWUG) that works with local high school students to build, deploy, and analyze ground magnetometers.
Candidates with experience in machine learning and/or ground magnetometer data analysis are particularly encouraged to apply.
Post-Doctoral Associate in Machine Learning for Space Weather
University of Colorado The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) encourages applications for a full-time Post-Doctoral Associate to work on the development, validation, and calibration of space weather models, using machine learning and physics-based models. This position contributes to a NASA-funded project within the ‘Space Weather with Quantified Uncertainty’ program. The main objective will be to deliver probabilistic space weather forecasts with their associated uncertainties. In particular, this position will focus on the forecast of solar wind quantities (speed and magnetic field). The position will involve close collaboration with other post-docs, students, and senior members of the project, which are divided between CIRES, the Computer Science Department and the Space Weather Technology, Research, and Education Center (SWx-TREC) at CU Boulder, and the space physics group at the University of California, Los Angeles. The position will be primarily based at CU Boulder, although remote working can be considered.
2i2c "The 2i2c team is looking to hire a new team member! We are seeking a product and community lead with the following two goals:
Empower the communities we serve to have impact with our infrastructure.
Guide our development and service design to reflect the needs of our users.
This role will work alongside our engineering team as a partner, and will serve as a high-bandwidth interface to the communities that we work with."
Post-doctoral position, Research Associate in Machine Learning for Heliophysics
FHNW University of Applied Sciences North Western Switzerland The FHNW Institute for Data Science is involved in various astroinformatics projects. It provides software components to ground segment data processing infrastructures (Euclid, Dark Energy Survey) or to science pipelines (Solar Orbiter, SKA). A core research area is the study and implementation of data driven methods to exploit the data collected in these missions, especially in the context of the Swiss National Science Foundation RODEM project (Robust Deep Density Models for High-Energy Physics and Solar Physics, rodem.ch)
Your tasks will include
* Design and application of deep learning models in different use cases involving principally solar data from spacecraft. An example is the use of generative models designed to provide efficient and highly discriminative classifiers for predicting solar flares.
* Participation to the global advancement of RODEM and possibly create links and synergies with associated further astroinformatics projects of the institute.
* Work closely with the RODEM team in house and in our partner institution, the University of Geneva. Support the in-house team in accomplishing the data management and data engineering tasks needed to facilitate the application of data-driven methods to large datasets.
* Possibly participation in our teaching activities
GEM, CEDAR, SHINE NSF grants
NSF New solicitations are out for these NSF programs which highlight ML as a focus area. See the solicitations or talk to a NSF Program Officer for more info
Southwest Research Institute 2 year postdoctoral research on machine learning applied to heliophysics. The main project involves flare forecasting using historical observations. Tasks include historical data homogenization, training ensembles of neural networks, and quantification of uncertainty.
My goal is to create a sustainable position in which there will be time devoted to proposal writing in the goal of making the transition to a research scientist position, so grant writing is part of the job.
It is one of my main dreams to build a nurturing team where we use novel techniques for ideation and collaboration modeled after five years of experience leading challenges in the Frontier Development Laboratory. As such, you can expect a lot of interaction between team members: Pair coding, code reviews, standup meetings, git versioning, and mindful interaction. Kindness and the willingness to help each other is highly preferred.
It is common for under-represented minorities to self-select out of positions without clear measurable requirements. If you can understand, run, and develop frameworks similar to those presented in this book: https://helioml.org/Introduction/title.html you are ready to join our team.
I want to create a highly diverse team across many axes of diversity. Expertise with heliophysics problems is not a requirement, if there is expertise on machine learning in other domains.
The position is not formally opened yet, but if you are interested, please let me know.
