Center for Radioastronomy and Astrophysics Mackenzie (CRAAM, São Paulo, Brazil) – Postdoc Position AvailableMay 15, 2019, from Richard Morton
The Center for Radioastronomy and Astrophysics Mackenzie (CRAAM) invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the area of Space Weather. The succesful applicant will work with the Solar Physics group increasing the capacity to perform diagnosis of active solar phenomena at submillimeter and mid-IR wavelengths. For this purpose, the use of techniques such as Big Data and machine learning are of particular interest.
Applicants must have a PhD in Astrophysics, Physics, or related field. Excellent computing skills and hands-on experience relevant to Solar Physics observations and data analysis are essential. Experience in Mid-IR and THz observations is a plus.
The Center for Radioastronomy and Astrophysics Mackenzie is a research center of the Mackenzie Presbyterian University Enginnering School. Located in the city of São Paulo (Brazil), during its almost 60 years of life, CRAAM has developed an international recognition, mostly in the Solar Physics field, where it has contributed to both new diagnostics of the flare dynamics and to the observing instrumentation. CRAAM is now developing new solar dedicated telescopes in the THz to Mid-IR almost unexplored bands.
