Kyung Hee University (Yongin, South Korea), School of Space Research – Postdoctoral Research Associates

July 16, 2018, from Richard Morton

The Kyung Hee University invites applications for postdoctoral positions in Solar Physics. We expect to offer one or two positions (first one year and then renewable for one or two more years contingent on performance and funding). The preferred starting date is September 1, 2018 but a later starting date can be negotiated. Fellows are expected to carry out original research in Solar Physics and Space Weather under the general supervision of Prof. Yong-Jae Moon whose interests are solar activities (CMEs and flares) and their associated space weather forecasts (deep neural network or physics-based).

Application consisting of a C.V., a list of publications, a description of research interests and plan (within three pages), and two letters of recommendation by those familiar with candidate’s work should be sent to by July 17, 2017. Review of the applications will begin July 18, 2018, and continue until the position is filled.

Salary will around 34,000,000 KRW (≈30,000 USD) depending on the candidate’s experience. The health insurance and pension will be partially supported. Funds will be available for travel and other research expenses. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Astronomy or Space Science by the time of employment.
Founded in 1949, Kyung Hee University is a well-established, but vibrantly growing educational and research institution ranked among the top eight comprehensive universities of Korea. The Department of Astronomy and Space Science, inaugurated in 1985, is located in Yongin (approximately 30 km south of Seoul), and currently has 19 professors, 15 postdoctoral researchers, and more than 60 graduate students.
