Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship position in Solar Physics for up to 2 years in the first instance. The post is within the Astrophysics Research Centre (ARC) in the School of Mathematics and Physics at Queen’s University Belfast (QUB).

Located within ARC, the QUB Solar Physics Group is part of the UK-DKIST Consortium that have delivered the detectors for instrumentation on the 4-metre Daniel K Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) that operate in the visible part of the electromagnetic spectrum. The successful candidate will work in collaboration with ARC and National Solar Observatory (NSO)/DKIST staff in Boulder and Hawaii (USA), respectively, to assist users with the preparation and execution of observing requests and the calibration and release of first-light observations. It is anticipated that the succesful applicant will spend approximately 50% of their time in the UK and 50% in the USA. They will be responsible for contributing to project deliverables in a timely fashion. It is anticipated that the successful applicant will also have time for independent solar physics research with DKIST.
