The Space Physics Group of the University of Helsinki is a leading European space physics group specialised both in observations and theoretical/computational modelling of space plasmas. We are now opening a postdoctoral researcher position for a 2-year project, funded by the University of Helsinki. The postdoctoral researcher will focus on imaging of solar radio bursts associated with solar eruptions with the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR).
The candidate should hold a PhD in solar or space physics, or a related field. Prior knowledge and useful skills include experience with Python data analysis and radio observations. In particular, we welcome candidates with previous knowledge of radio interferometry.
We offer a position in a dynamic and international research group, with a possibility to network and to develop as a researcher. We are innovative, high-spirited and a close community. Finland also offers a great environment fostering equality, equality of opportunities, the best schooling system, vacations, and possibilities for work-life balance.
The start time of the position is flexible but no later than September 2021. The application period is open until 28 February 2021.
