Research Fellow in Space Weather – UCL Mullard Space Science LaboratoryAugust 10, 2020, from Lucie Green
UCL’s Mullard Space Science Laboratory is seeking to appoint a Research Fellow to investigate the physical processes leading up to solar energetic particle events (SEPs). The post-holder will analyse a range of multi-wavelength solar remote sensing data and will work as part of the SWARM project (SWIMMR Aviation and Risk Modelling), a 5-member UK consortium that is led by the University of Surrey. The SWARM project aims to provide a now-casting and embryonic forecasting capability for ionising radiation risks to aircraft, their crews and passengers to be used by the Met Office Space Weather Operations Centre. The position is funded by NERC as part of the SWIMMR (Space Weather Instrumentation, Measurement, Modelling and Risk) initiative, a four-year Strategic Priorities Fund programme that will improve the UK’s capabilities for space weather monitoring, prediction and risk mitigation.
This post is funded for 20 months in the first instance.
The closing date is 7 Sep 2020.
