Two+ year Research Associate in Space Plasma Physics

July 24, 2018, from Richard Morton

Two+ year Research Associate in Space Plasma Physics
Mullard Space Science Laboratory/UCL
Salary: £31,604 – £38,833 per annum
Closing Date: 13 Aug 2018

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a researcher to join the Department of Space and Climate Physics (Mullard Space Science Laboratory) and undertake research in the general area of magnetospheric physics but with emphasis on the magnetospheric substorm, auroral physics or radiation belts. This project is expected to utilise state-of-the-art data from the NASA THEMIS, Van Allen Probes and MMS missions, and ESA Cluster auroral acceleration region campaigns.

The Space Plasma Physics group is a growing group within Mullard Space Science Laboratory at the forefront of magnetospheric and solar wind research in the UK. Currently, we have four Academics, two independent research fellows, three post-doctoral research associates and five PhD students, and we are looking to bring onboard another post-doctoral researcher to participate and contribute to our group. This position also offers the opportunity for travel for the postholder to present their work at relevant national and international conferences and workshops. The post is initially funded for a two-year period, with a potential extension subject to funding availability
