Job Summary

The Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU) is now welcoming applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to research the use of advanced machine learning techniques as applied to spectropolarimetric inversions and develop novel methodologies based on those techniques to measure small scale pressure fluctuations in the solar photosphere that may prove to be the sources of the solar p-modes. This candidate will also be responsible for presenting results at conferences and via refereed publications.

Who We Are

The Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU) began in 1948, a decade before NASA. We are the world’s only research institute to have sent instruments to all eight planets and Pluto.

LASP combines all aspects of space exploration through our expertise in science, engineering, mission operations, and scientific data analysis. As part of CU, LASP also works to educate and train the next generation of space scientists, engineers and mission operators by integrating undergraduate and graduate students into working teams. Our students take their unique experiences with them into government or industry, or remain in academia to continue the cycle of exploration.

LASP is an affiliate of CU Boulder AeroSpace Ventures, a collaboration among aerospace-related departments, institutes, centers, government labs, and industry partners.
