The Solar and Magnetospheric Theory Group has an opening for a Research Fellow to work in the field of solar or magnetospheric physics. Funded by an STFC Consolidated Grant, this project will mainly be in collaboration with Profs I De Moortel, A Hood, D Mackay, T Neukirch and C Parnell and Drs V Archontis and A Wright. Applications are sought from all areas of solar and magnetospheric physics. However, preference may be given to applicants with interests in (i) global magnetic field modelling, (ii) active region modelling and (iii) magnetic flux emergence. You should have completed or expect to obtain shortly a PhD in either solar physics or magnetospheric physics or a closely related subject.

This post is initially for a term of 16 months.

Informal enquiries to Prof Alan Hood, email: or Prof Duncan Mackay, email:
