The Department of Astronomy at Stockholm University is recruiting a Senior Lecturer (tenure) in solar physics. The position is tied to the Institute for Solar Physics, which is responsible for the Swedish 1-m Solar Telescope (SST) on La Palma, and is an independent institute within the Department of Astronomy and a national Research Infrastructure under the Swedish Research Council. The field of research includes observational and theoretical solar physics, in both cases with direct relevance for research based on observations with the Swedish 1-m Solar Telescope (SST) and future large solar telescopes (ATST, EST). Observational solar physics also includes development of instrumentation for ground-based solar telescopes. The main tasks are research, teaching and supervision of students. Applicants are expected to have a PhD or corresponding level of scientific competence, and pedagogical skills. Deadline for applications: April 2, 2013.

In part through grants from the Swedish Research Council and Stockholm University, and in part through a major grant from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, several new postdoc and PhD positions in solar physics will be appointed, and new instrumentation for SST will be developed, in the near future. Stockholm University strives towards an even gender balance throughout the organization. To improve this balance among lecturers at the section of mathematics and physics of the faculty of sciences, we are particularly interested in applications from women.
