The School of Mathematics & Physics at Queen’s University Belfast, is currently seeking to appoint an exceptional candidate to the post of Research Fellow in Solar Physics within the Astrophysics Research Centre. The successful candidate will work on the analysis and interpretation of solar flare observations from space-based observatories such as SDO, RHESSI, Solar Orbiter, GOES-R, MAVEN, and SORCE, and the potential impact of associated changes in the solar irradiance on Earth’s ionosphere. The position is funded by European Office of Aerospace Research and Development (US Air Force) and an extension will be contingent upon future funding and performance.
The successful candidate must have, and your application should clearly demonstrate you have:
– A PhD (or equivalent) in Solar Physics, Solar Terrestrial Physics, Aeronomy, or a closely related discipline, either awarded or submitted by the time of taking up the post.
– At least 3 years’ relevant research experience in either the analysis and interpretation of solar flare observations and/or modelling, or observations/modelling of the response of planetary atmospheres to solar irradiance variability.
– A number of refereed publications and/or technical reports in the research field, commensurate with stage of career.
Application deadline is February 20th. Details can be found here: https://hrwebapp.qub.ac.uk/tlive_webrecruitment/wrd/run/ETREC107GF.open?VACANCY_ID=500868IVMZ&WVID=6273090Lgx&LANG=USA or contact email@example.com for more information.
