JOB OPENING: A Postdoctoral Fellow Position

JOB OPENING: A Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Space Physics Group at the Department of Physics, University of Helsinki, Finland
The Space Physics Group at the Department of Physics is a leading European space physics group specialised both in observations and modelling of space plasmas. We develop the novel global hybrid-Vlasov simulation Vlasiator to investigate the near-Earth space in ion kinetic scales utilising hybrid-Vlasov methods.

We are now opening a postdoctoral fellow position. The postdoctoral fellow will focus on developing Vlasiator and modeling space plasmas. Prior knowledge in the following areas is required: high-performance computing, supercomputer environments, parallelisation algorithms, version control, C++. Other useful skills include: Python, plasma physics, adaptive mesh refinement. 

We offer a position in a dynamic and international research group, with a possibility to network and to develop as a researcher. The 2-year position is available immediately. The deadline for applications is 31.3.2019.
