The Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (www.dias.ie) wishes to appoint a promising early-stage researcher to one of its five-year Schrödinger Fellowships in the area of Solar Physics. The successful candidate will work as a member of Professor Peter Gallagher’s research group, but is expected to develop an independent research programme.
Candidates should have several years of outstanding research experience and an excellent publication record in an area complimentary to existing research in the group, such as solar activity, solar radio physics and space weather. Note that the group has a particular interest in solar and space weather research using the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR) and ESA and NASA missions such as Solar Orbiter and the Parker Solar Probe. Applicants with experience in numerical modelling of solar and space weather phenomena are encouraged to apply.
These positions are intended as stepping-stones to advance an early stage researcher’s career and Fellows are expected, in addition to developing an independent research programme, to apply for research grants, mentor graduate students, and, optionally, to do some guest lecturing in local universities.
Candidates are required to upload a letter of application together with an academic CV and a research proposal (no more than 5 pages) to www.dias.ie/vacancies. The names and contact details for three academic referees (who have agreed to act) should also be provided.
The Fellowship salary scale is: €52,950 - €58,852 per annum (Personal Pension Contribution scale); €50,303 - €55,910 per annum (Non-Personal Pension Contribution scale). Appointees will be subject to the general Irish public sector regulations as regards annual leave, sick leave, pension entitlements etc.
