Position: Postdoctoral Researcher in Solar Magnetohydrodynamics
Institution: University of Dundee
Location: Dundee, Scotland, United Kingdom
Duties: We are recruiting for an exceptional individual to join the dynamic Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and Astrophysics group at the University of Dundee as a Postdoctoral Researcher, to study the long-term evolution of the Sun's global coronal magnetic field. Topics will include setup and analysis of long-term surface flux transport and coronal magnetic field simulations constrained by solar observations
Requirements: A PhD in solar physics, plasma physics or applied mathematics; Extensive experience in computational MHD/hydrodynamics and code development; A developing track record of publication in high quality academic journals; Experience of presentation of research outcomes at national and/or international conferences; Proficiency in appropriate software packages and/or programming languages, e.g. Python, IDL

Topics will include setup and analysis of long-term surface flux transport and coronal magnetic field simulations constrained by solar observations. This is a fixed-term appointment for 3 years. The MHD and Astrophysics group at Dundee consists of six permanent members of staff (Prof G. Hornig, Drs S. Gregory, S. Matsumura, K. Meyer, A. Russell and A. Sicilia Aguilar). This project is funded as part of an STFC Consortium Grant that also includes Prof A. Yeates, Drs C. Prior and P. Wyper at the University of Durham. Further details about our group in Dundee can be found here. The ideal candidate will have a good knowledge of MHD and will have extensive experience in computational MHD/hydrodynamics and code development. Experience of topological analysis of magnetic fields is desirable. Experience in solar physics and space weather observations would also be beneficial. Applicants must hold a PhD in solar physics, plasma physics or applied mathematics by the start of the project. The position is available from 1st April 2022. Your priorities will include: Preparation and analysis of solar observational data. Setup and analysis of numerical surface flux transport (SFT) simulations constrained by solar observational data. Validation and optimization of SFT simulations, based on comparison with observational time series. Analysis of long-term global coronal magnetic field simulations, including: Global integral properties Topological analysis of the coronal magnetic field Estimates of heliospheric and geomagnetic indices through heliospheric modelling Comparison with time series of in-situ and remote observations Who we’re looking for: A PhD in solar physics, plasma physics or applied mathematics Extensive experience in computational MHD/hydrodynamics and code development A developing track record of publication in high quality academic journals Experience of presentation of research outcomes at national and/or international conferences Proficiency in appropriate software packages and/or programming languages, e.g. Python, IDL This role does not meet the minimum requirements set by the UKVI to enable sponsorship of migrant workers. Further information can be found at: https://uod.ac.uk/2qUx1RR The University of Dundee is a signatory of the Researcher Development Concordat and is committed to enhancing the research environment and culture. Engagement and support of activities which assist the researcher development agenda at the University is therefore essential. Informal enquiries can be directed to Dr Karen Meyer: kmeyer001@dundee.ac.uk The closing date for applications Friday 28th January 2022. We anticipate that interviews for this appointment will take place during the week beginning Monday 7 February 2022. The diversity of our staff and students helps to make the University of Dundee a UK university of choice for undergraduate, postgraduate and distance learning. Family friendly policies, staff networks for BME, Disabled and LGBT staff, membership of Athena SWAN, the ECU Race Equality Charter and Stonewall as well a full range of disability services, create an enjoyable and inclusive place to work.
