Postdoctoral Research Associate in solar physics – Atomic Astrophysics group, Cambridge UK

March 3, 2020, from Giulio Del Zanna

We invite applications for the position of Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on the science exploitation of near-future DKIST and Solar Orbiter coronal observations.

Key science topics are: the role of Alfven waves in coronal heating and the fine-structure of the corona (DKIST), and understanding the formation of transition-region lines and their use to identify the source regions of the solar wind measured by Solar Orbiter.

This position is funded by a grant from STFC. The candidate will work within the Atomic Astrophysics group in close collaboration with Dr Giulio Del Zanna. Initially, the project will involve the analysis of existing spectroscopic observations and the improvement of current models to measure key plasma parameters including densities, temperatures and chemical abundances.

Closing date for applications is 2nd April 2020.
