2 Postdoctoral Research Fellows in the Solar and Magnetospheric Theory Group at the University of St Andrews

The Solar and Magnetospheric Theory Group has openings for two Research Fellows to work in the field of solar or magnetospheric physics. Funded by an STFC Consolidated Grant, the projects will mainly be in collaboration with Profs I De Moortel, A Hood, D Mackay, T Neukirch and C Parnell and Drs V Archontis and A Wright.

Preference will be given to applicants with interests in

(i) coronal heating (Project Lead: Ineke De Moortel) and

(ii) global magnetic field modelling (Project Lead: Duncan Mackay),

but we encourage applications by candidates from all areas of solar and magnetospheric physics. Applicants should have completed or expect to obtain shortly a PhD in either solar physics or magnetospheric physics or a closely related subject.

These posts are initially for a term of 24 months, with extensions by a further 12 months possible. The start date will be 1 March 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Informal enquiries to Prof Thomas Neukirch, email: tn3@st-andrews.ac.uk, Prof Ineke De Moortel, email: ineke.demoortel@st-andrews.ac.uk , or Prof Duncan Mackay, email: dhm@st-andrews.ac.uk.
