Research Fellow in Solar PhysicsJanuary 21, 2019, from Mihalis Mathioudakis
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship position in Solar Physics for up to 24 months in the first instance. The post is located in the Astrophysics Research Centre (ARC) of the School of Mathematics and Physics.
Located within ARC, the QUB Solar Physics Group is part of the UK-DKIST Consortium which is delivering the detectors for the DKIST instruments operating in the visible part of the electromagnetic spectrum. The successful candidate will work on the analysis and interpretation of observations form ground-based and space-borne solar facilities. He/she will be responsible for contributing to project deliverables in a timely fashion.
The Solar Physics Group is a vibrant, highly productive research team within ARC, currently comprising 3 academic staff, 3 postdoctoral researchers and 5 PhD students. Group members make extensive use of a wide range of solar satellites and ground-based telescopes. We constructed the Rapid Oscillations in the Solar Atmosphere (ROSA) imaging system that can observe the solar atmosphere in as many as 7 wavelengths simultaneously, and with a cadence of up to 200 Hz. The Group makes extensive use of image reconstruction techniques for the analysis of ground-based solar observations from the Swedish Solar Telescope and Dunn Solar Telescope.
Applicants must have a PhD in Solar Physics or a closely-related discipline completed by the time of taking up the post. Experience is essential in the reduction and analysis of observations from ground-based instruments, such as imagers and imaging spectropolarimeters.
