Position contingent upon funding availability.****

The Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University of Colorado Boulder invites applications for the position of Postdoctoral in Theoretical Solar and Stellar Astrophysics. LASP is a full-cycle, space institute, combining all aspects of space exploration through our expertise in science, engineering, mission operations, and scientific data analysis. LASP is a large, multidisciplinary research institute located in the rapidly developing CU-Boulder East Campus.

Of particular interest are postdoctoral candidates who are interested in theoretical and computational studies of dynamics within solar and stellar interiors and photospheres. Problems of particular interest include the driving of differential rotation and mean flows by convection, wave driving in stellar interiors, and global-scale dynamo processes. The successful candidate will have access to extensive computational resources and existing modern, highly parallel astrophysical fluid dynamics codes, and could be involved in the creation of next generation codes for studying solar fluid dynamics.
