The Postdoctoral Research Associate in Solar and Stellar Flare Statistics will use theory, data analysis, and computation to improve our ability to predict solar and stellar flares. Solar flares are the most energetic events in the solar system, and can create hazardous conditions in our local space environment. This project involves: producing an improved solar flare catalogue, suitable for investigating spatio-temporal correlations in flare statistics; developing a theoretical “stress-relax” model for flare occurrence, and combining it with the data, to probe the flare mechanism; applying the model to develop new approaches to prediction. The work will be done in collaboration with established research groups at the University of Sydney and the University of Melbourne.
Ideal candidate will have:
