Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics in Uppsala for research related to scientific studies of solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling. Of particular interest are energy and plasma exchange between the two major regimes of plasma in the near-Earth environment, and the related flow of electric currents in the high-latitude auroral zone.
Our research group is funded to carry out research utilizing the new ESA multi-satellite mission SWARM in low Earth orbit in conjunction with other multi-satellite missions (Cluster, Themis and MMS) in magnetospheric orbits, and a variety of ground-based instrumentation (radars, magnetometers and all-sky cameras).
Candidates should have completed a PhD no earlier than 15 December 2013. If the candidate has an older degree and wants to refer to special circumstances, such as parental leave, this should be clearly stated. The candidate should not currently be an active researcher at IRF in Uppsala or at the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Uppsala University.
