January 1, 2019, from Richard Morton

The Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC, Tenerife, Spain) invites applications for one postdoctoral contract to work at the IAC in the project “Polarized Radiation Diagnostics for Exploring the Magnetism of the Outer Solar Atmosphere”. This research project is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) through the Advanced Grant POLMAG (see

Candidates with experience in the development and application of spectral synthesis and inversion codes of Stokes profiles caused by the joint action of scattering processes and the Hanle and Zeeman effects are especially encouraged to apply. A good knowledge of the physics of polarization in spectral lines is also important.

The three years contract is expected to start in 2019 (exact starting date to be negotiated). Subsequently, it may be further extended till 2022 December 31.

Deadline for receiving applications is 2019 January 20.
