The international partners in the project include members of an ISSI International Team of Scientists.
PhD position profile:

We are looking for highly motivated graduates/graduate students with genuine interest in the physics of the Sun, specifically in solar eruptions which condition the space weather near Earth. The candidates are expected to have an excellent background in physics, and a good command of written and spoken English. Good knowledge and acquaintance with at least one of the following fields – solar physics, space physics, astrophysics – as well as good programming skills are required. We offer an interesting PhD project on a recent topic in solar physics that will be performed within a dynamic research group.

Duration: 3 years (Starting date: no later than October 1, 2019)
Wage: Monthly gross salary will be ≈ 2160 EUR (14 times per year) according to the standard personnel costs and salaries for FWF project proposals
