University of Oslo Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Astrophysics
Position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow available at the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics.
The fellowship is for a period of 2 years. The preferred starting date is January 1st, 2016 but a later starting date can be negotiated.
Within the framework of the position duties may be assigned. No one can be appointed for more than one specified period at the same.
The Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics of the University of Oslo has strong research groups within solar physics and cosmology. Both groups are heavily engaged in computational research, both using national and international supercomputers and using internal infrastructure.
The post-doctoral position is connected to the solar physics group, which is renowned for its detailed modelling of the solar atmosphere with radiative magnetohydrodynamics, and for innovative data analysis methods for high cadence imaging and spectroscopic observations. The research activities are now extended towards the atmospheres of cool stars.
The postdoctoral fellow will be working on the project "Flare Chromospheres: Observations, Models and Archives" funded by the EC programme FP7-SPACE-2012. The successful candidate, based in Oslo, will work together with other Consortium members on the analysis and interpretation of high spatial and temporal resolution solar flare observations and the development of archives of observations and models. The particular emphasis in Oslo is on radiation magnetohydrodynamic modelling.
In accordance with the University of Oslo's equal opportunities policy, we invite applications from all interested individuals regardless of gender or ethnicity.
UiO has an agreement for all employees, aiming to secure rights to research results a.o.
