Postdoctoral Fellows in Supernova and Solar Physics, Ref. No. SU FV-2397-17, at the Department of Astronomy, Stockholm University, Sweden. Closing date: 30 September 2017.
The Department of Astronomy at Stockholm University invites applications for two postdoctoral researchers in the area of supernovae and solar physics.
A) Supernova: We are seeking applications for a postdoctoral researcher in the area of core-collapse supernova simulations. This position will focus heavily on developing, extending, running, and analysing large-scale computational simulations of the core-collapse supernova central engine.
B) Solar: We are looking for candidates for a postdoctoral researcher position in chromospheric solar physics. The selected candidate will have access to state-of-the-art chromospheric data from the CHROMIS and CRISP intruments at the Swedish 1m Solar Telescope (SST) and to our new NLTE inversion code to perform her/his research in active regions and flares. Candidates with a more theoretical background (MHD/radiative transfer) are also very welcome to apply.
