Job Description

Plasma physicist needed for a hands-on R&D project to demonstrate a system to use a magnetic sail to deorbit a cubesat.

This is a first generation application of magnetic sail, or magsail, technology, that could someday be used to propel interplantary travel using the momentum flux of the solar wind.

We are for a brilliant, creative, hard working, engineer/scientist who knows his or her stuff and is passionate about furthering the human exploration of space and world development on Earth.
