Stockholm University, Institute for Solar Physics – Postdoc Position in Solar Physics

May 1, 2019, from Richard Morton

The Institute for Solar Physics announces one postdoc position in Solar Physics.

The position will be for the ERC project ‘‘Understanding magnetic-field-regulated heating in heating and explosive events in the solar chromosphere’‘.
The aim of the project is to work with new non-LTE inversion techniques to study the chromosphere of flares and active regions, the 3D structure of the atmosphere, and how energy is released in the chromosphere.

The main task of the selected candidate would be to perform radiative transfer calculations in chromospheric lines from rMHD simulations to estimate radiative cooling rates and to generally compare those models with our non-LTE inversion results. The main solar target would be active regions, plage and/or flares.

Depending on the background of the selected applicant, we will teach her/him to use the latest versions of the Multi3D and STiC codes.
This position will be funded for 3 years and it includes a very generous yearly travel allowance for conferences and collaborations.

Closing date: 25th of May 2019.
Further information about the position can be obtained from Dr. Jaime de la Cruz Rodriguez, telephone: +46 8 5537 8559, jaime(at)
