Final announcement: Research Fellow in Solar Physics (2 vacancies) – Deadline July 5th

June 30, 2020, from Richard Morton

Applications are invited for two separate four-year (53 month) postdoctoral research fellow positions in the area of Solar Physics; to be hosted at Northumbria University, UK.

The successful candidates will conduct research relevant to understanding how Alfvénic waves transfer energy through the Sun’s atmosphere, with a particular focus on the corona and the connection with the solar wind. These positions are funded by a Future Leader grant from UKRI (the RiPSAW project, MR/T019891/1) and you will work primarily with Dr Richard Morton (PI). RiPSAW focuses on both the observation of the Alfvénic waves and modelling of their turbulent cascade. You will initiate, develop and conduct high-quality research in support of the project.

The two positions offer the opportunity for regular travel to international conferences and collaborators. There will also be a strong focus on the professional and personal development of the appointed staff, with substantial resources available for training of the successful candidates (including attending workshops, courses, etc).

Both fellows would also be expected to contribute to the general development of the research group, supporting each other’s research and mentoring PhD, Masters, undergraduate and summer students. The positions also require engagement with the project’s public outreach and communication activities.
