Announcement of
ESRs working on Project 12 of SWATNet
University of Coimbra

Dear colleagues,

The Space Weather Awareness Training Network (SWATNet) is a Marie Sklodowska Curie action Innovative Training Network (ITN) project. The project aims at breakthroughs in our physical understanding of the key agents of Space Weather.

We are now in the process of hiring 12 Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) to pursue their PhD degrees in a challenging, inherently international and interdisciplinary research environment. The consortium consists of nine Parties from eight European countries, as well as several recognized companies in the field. The PhD projects focus on analyzing and forecasting the solar activity.

ESRs working on Project 12 of SWATNet will be based in Coimbra, Portugal with 9 month secondments in Sheffield (UK).Applicants interested in these position should sent the application to Teresa Barata: teresabarata[at]dct.uc.pt; mtbarata[at]gmail.com.

Announcement of
Postdoctoral Position in Space and Plasma Physics at the University of Oslo

Dear colleagues,

The section for Plasma and Space Physics at the University of Oslo is inviting applications for a four-year position as Postdoctoral Research fellow.

The successful candidate will be a part of the Section for Plasma and Space Physics at the Department of Physics as well as the 4DSpace Strategic Research Initiative. The main focus of these groups is to advance our understanding of processes in the high-latitude ionosphere, including plasma irregularities, turbulence, and space weather effects in the polar regions. The main tools used for this research are ground-based instruments, including radar and optical systems (EISCAT, SuperDARN, all-sky imagers), advanced numerical models, laboratory plasma experiments, and instruments on board satellites and sounding rockets.

The successful candidate is expected to take an active role in teaching at the Department, with an average teaching load of 25% over the four years.

Application Deadline is 28th February 2021. Starting date is no later than October 1st 2021.
