Brinson Postdoctoral Fellowship

We invite applications for a 3-year prestigious postdoctoral position from The Brinson Foundation starting September 1, 2022 at the National Solar Observatory, Boulder, USA. Review of applications will begin on January 7, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled.

The goal of this position is to improve our understanding of solar active region magnetic structure before and during solar eruptions. To address this goal the candidate will assist with analysis of active region observations taken with space and ground-based observatories, including the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST), Solar Orbiter (SO) and Parker Solar Probe (PSP), and the development and performance of data-driven numerical simulations of solar eruptions. This position is a unique opportunity that will bridge expertise of groups with internationally leading competence in areas of active region simulations and space and ground-based observations at the National Solar Observatory (headquarters of DKIST), High Altitude Observatory (HAO) and University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley). The candidate will participate in collaborative and independent solar physics research, present results at scientific meetings, publish articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals and participate in outreach activities during the Total Solar Eclipse, 2024.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: January 7, 2022 or until filled.
