[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral fellow in space physics at the Birkeland Centre for Space Science

Date Mon, 07 Oct 2013 13:40:41 +0200

At the Department of Physics and Technology, University of Bergen (UoB) in Norway, a 3-year position as postdoctoral fellows in space physics is available from December 1, 2013. The position will be part of the Birkeland Centre for Space Science (BCSS).

The Postdoctoral Fellow will be part of a group in BCSS that explores how energetic particle precipitation can affect the chemistry and dynamics of the upper atmosphere in the polar region. The particle energy deposition is mainly estimated based on data from multiple spacecraft such as e.g. NOAA/POES. The atmospheric effects are monitored by both ground based facilities and multiple spacecraft (e.g. ENVISAT, TIMED, Odin, AURA etc.). The successful candidate should have solid knowledge as well as experience with data analysis and/or modeling of one or more of these fields:

- Characteristics of energetic particle precipitation
- Chemical effects produced by energetic particle precipitation in the middle atmosphere (50-100 km)
- Dynamics of the middle atmosphere (50-100 km)

The candidate should have good programming skills, and speak and write English fluently. The candidate should have a PhD in Space Physics, Atmospheric Science or a related field.

The work place will be at UoB in Bergen, Norway. A project and a progress plan will be written in cooperation with the project leader on appointment.

Starting salary on grade 57 (code 1352/pay framework 24.1) in the Civil Service pay grade table; currently NOK 473,400 gross p.a. Full text of announcement can be found and submission of application should be made at

For any questions contact Professor Nikolai Østgaard,, or group leader Dr. Hilde Nesse Tyssøy,

Closing date for applications: October 31, 2013
