The Swedish Institute of Space Physics (IRF), Uppsala, Sweden, is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral position to study magnetic reconnection in space and, in particular, in the Earth’s magnetosphere based on data from the multi-spacecraft missions Cluster (ESA, launched 2000) and MMS (NASA, launched 2015). The successful candidate will be involved in international collaboration. Analysis of data is an important part of the work and experience in combining advanced data analysis with theoretical modelling is an advantage. Interest and experience in development of scientific instruments and measurement techniques will likewise be positively valued, as will experience in coordination of scientific activities.

Candidates should have completed a PhD during 2014 or later. The position is available at the Uppsala office of IRF, for 2 years. Candidates should be ready to start no later than January 2018.
