Postdoctoral Position in Space Physics in Uppsala

Postdoctoral Position in Space Physics
at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics, Uppsala, Sweden.

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position for studies of space plasma physics using the four ESA Cluster satellites.

The overall goal of the project is to improve our understanding of how microphysical plasma processes transport and concentrate mass, momentum and energy, and how such processes are important for large scale properties of space plasmas and magnetospheres. The successful candidate is expected to carry out analysis of Cluster data and address scientific questions related to the microphysics of magnetic reconnection and of plasma turbulence. In particular, the importance of these phenomena for plasma energization and transport are of interest.

The Swedish Institute of Space Physics (IRF) is a governmental research institute which conducts research and postgraduate education in atmospheric physics, space physics and space technology. Measurements are made in the atmosphere, ionosphere, magnetosphere and around other planets with the help of ground-based equipment (including radar), stratospheric balloons and satellites. IRF was established (as Kiruna Geophysical Observatory) in 1957 and its first satellite instrument was launched in 1968. The head office is in Kiruna (geographic coordinates 67.84° N, 20.41° E) and IRF also has offices in Umeå, Uppsala and Lund.
