Researcher positions in Bergen, Norway

We are looking for two researchers to join our team in Bergen, Norway, to develop a numerical fluid-simulation of 3D ionospheric dynamics that includes induction. The positions are fully funded for five years in a European Research Council project. The goal of the project is to understand and explain from first principles how Earth’s atmosphere is dynamically coupled to space.

We are looking for two skilled programmers to develop a numerical fluid simulation of space-atmosphere coupling: 1) A researcher with a PhD in either physics, scientific computing, applied and computational mathematics, or an equivalent field; and with experience from developing dynamic fluid computational models and expertise in Fortran or C. And 2) A researcher with a PhD in space physics, strong command of Python, and experience with space plasma simulations.

As part of the project team, you will have the opportunity to work on a long-term and stimulating project that will advance our understanding of how Earth’s atmosphere is coupled with space. You will have a lot of freedom to steer the development of simulation code and work with a large team of researchers at the University of Bergen in Norway.

For questions about the positions, please contact Karl Laundal, The application deadline is end of June, and the earliest start date is 1 October.
