TWO-YEARS POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER POSITION IN NUMERICAL MODELLING OF THE IONOSPHERE

IRAP, Toulouse, France - from 1st of March 2020

Following call to tender SU-SPACE-22-SEC-2019: Space Weather, in the frame Horizon2020, EUHFORIA 2.0 project (PI: S. Poedts, KU Leuven, Belgium) has been recently selected. It aims at developing the world’s most advanced space weather forecasting tool and will address geoeffectiveness, impacts and mitigation, including extreme events, related to solar eruptions, solar wind streams and Solar Energetic Particles, with particular emphasis on its application to forecast Geomagnetically Induced Currents (GICs) and radiation on geospace. In this context, IRAP-CNRS (Toulouse France) is involved in the development of the GICs forecasting work package by providing forecasts of geomagnetic variations at any point on the ground. The main points of this work package are first the coupling of IPIM ionosphere model and IMM electrodynamics model, already developed in the group at IRAP, and then the development of a Biot-Savart module, which will use the output for the coupled models to calculate the ionospheric horizontal currents responsible for the GICs. IRAP ionosphere group is seeking a post-doctoral researcher to lead the aforementioned developments.
