The Solar System Physics and Space Technology research programme at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics (IRF) invites applications for a temporary research position in Space Physics, related to the ESA Rosetta mission to comet 67P Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Applications
are invited both for a 2-year post-doc position and for shorter periods for senior guest scientists.
The advertised position is a research position for studies of the cometary plasma environment and its interaction with the solar wind primarily using ion data from the Ion Composition Analyzer on board Rosetta but also using data from the other instruments that form the
Rosetta Plasma Consortium (RPC).
Previous experience of working with plasma and/or particle data from space missions is required. The position, placed in Kiruna, is funded by the Swedish Research Council. Post-doc candidates should have completed a PhD during 2013 or later. Candidates planning to
obtain their PhD degree no later than January 2017 can also apply. A post-doc candidate should not currently be an active researcher at IRF.
Closing date is 7 October 2016.
