University of Oslo, Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics – Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Solar/Stellar Physics

March 1, 2019, from Richard Morton

A position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow is available at the Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics, Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics, University of Oslo.
The fellowship period is 3 years. Starting date preferably 01.10.2019 but might be negotiated.

The position is connected to the project “Exploring Millimeter Indicators of Solar-Stellar Activity“ (EMISSA), which will use the Atacama Large Millimeter/sub-millimeter Array (ALMA) for a re-evaluation of the activity of stars by means of a comparative solar-stellar study with the Sun serving as a fundamental reference. The EMISSA project will benefit from synergies with the ERC-funded SolarALMA team at Oslo and an ESO-funded ALMA Development Study in co-operation with Onsala Space Observatory, Sweden. The project is part of the Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics (RoCS), which is a centre of excellence funded by the Research Council of Norway and the University of Oslo.

The successful candidate would work on numerical simulations of stellar atmospheres (incl. the Sun) with particular emphasis on radiative transfer calculations but also on the processing and analysis of observations with ALMA in co-operation with the Solar ALMA team at RoCS and with international collaborators.

Salary NOK 515 200 – 597 400 per annum depending on qualifications in position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow (position code 1352).
