Two postdoc positions in solar physics at the University of Glasgow

July 8, 2019, from Lyndsay Fletcher

Two solar physics postdoctoral research positions are available in the School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Glasgow. Both are available for one year in the first instance.

Research Assistant/Associate position in solar physics / solar flare spectroscopy, University of Glasgow, UK

This project is to work with Prof. Lyndsay Fletcher, to carry out spectroscopy of solar flares, with a focus on the chromosphere. It
requires a demonstrated knowledge of the analysis and interpretation of spectroscopic data from space-based instruments such as Hinode/EIS and IRIS, and/or ground-based instruments such as the Swedish Solar Telescope. The successful candidate will be also expected to develop efficient ways to handle large spectroscopic datasets, and contribute to the physical interpretation of the observational results. The group has a long history in solar flare research, and the project will also look towards future research in this area with the DKIST and Solar Orbiter.

Vacancy Reference: 027361 Closing Date: 5th August 2019

For informal questions please contact lyndsay.fletcher@glasgow.ac.uk

Research Assistant position in solar physics /solar radio physics, University of Glasgow, UK

The project is to work with Dr. Eduard Kontar to study the physics of the solar system plasma and non-thermal particles in the near-Sun environment and further into space – the heliosphere  by means of in-situ observations of particles and fields and low frequency radio emission observed by LOFAR. The investigation is supported by theoretical calculations of the plasma  wave, wave-particle and particle transport processes that link the Sun  to space and governs “space weather”. The group has close involvement with instruments and missions (Parker Solar Probe, Solar Orbiter) designed to study the inner heliospheric environment and develop a range of theoretical projects for the next generation of instruments like the Square Kilometer Array.
