Postdoctoral Research Fellow in space physics/atmospheric sciences at the Birkeland Centre for Space Science (BCSS)

There is a vacancy for a postdoctoral research fellow position at the Department of Physics and Technology in space physics/atmospheric sciences. The position is for a fixed-term period of 4 years and is associated with the Birkeland Centre for Space Science (BCSS).

The post doctoral research 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. Energetic electrons and protons, trapped in the Earth’s magnetic field, can collide with gases in our atmosphere. The collisions initiate a number of chemical reactions leading to the production of NOx and HOx gasses, which in turn can reduce the ozone concentration. Ozone is important in the energy budget of the atmosphere at these altitudes. Hence changing the concentration of ozone in the upper stratosphere might also impact temperature and winds. If, how, and to what extent these changes impose further impact deeper into the atmosphere remain uncertain.

The applicant must hold a PhD- degree in space physics/atmospheric sciences, or must have submitted his/her PhD thesis for assessment prior to the application deadline. It is a condition of employment that the PhD degree has been awarded.
