PhD student in Space Physics (2.2.1-212/17) Stop date: 18 September.
Swedish Institute of Space Physics, Uppsala, Sweden is looking for a PhD student in Space Physics. The position is related to studies of magnetic reconnection in space plasmas.
Applications are invited for a PhD student position to study turbulence and wave-particle interaction mechanisms inside magnetic reconnection. Magnetic reconnection is an important process in most astrophysical plasma environments leading to efficient, fast and often explosive-like conversion of magnetic energy into kinetic energy of plasma particles and rapid reconfiguration of magnetic topology. The new PhD student will work directly with experimental data from the NASA multi-spacecraft Magnetospheric MultiScale (MMS) mission.
The position is available at the Uppsala office at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics (IRF), located at the Ångström Laboratory in Uppsala, Sweden, starting at the latest in the second half of 2017 for a total duration of four years. The PhD student will belong to the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Uppsala University and must therefore fulfill the university requirements. Information on the research education is available at www.physics.uu.se and www.teknat.uu.se. Information on research at IRF Uppsala can be found at www.irfu.se. The Swedish Research Council and Uppsala University fund the position.
