Postdoc in Space Physics at the University of Bergen, Norway - due 15 Apr

A three year postdoc position is available in the space physics group at the University of Bergen, Norway. The position is funded through the Norwegian IPY program under the project IPY-ICESTAR. The successful candidate will work on conjugate phenomena and use all available data from ground and space to study how the MI system responds to varying solar wind conditions. As we will run the EISCAT Svalbard radar continuously through the International Polar Year, these data will be of special interest, as well as data that will be available through the ICESTAR virtual dataport, i.e., all-sky images and riometer data from ground, as well as the SuperDARN network. The successful candidate will also take part in organizing the Norwegian IPY activity, as well as its public outreach projects. We are searching for a candidate that can initiate collaborations and represent the project and sees this as an opportunity to build her/his own network.

Electronic application including (1) a letter of interest with research interests and project plan, (2) a CV with a list of all publications and (3) name and contact information of 3 references should be sent through the link you will find at, where you also find more information about the position. Copies of exams, certificates and scientific works including a list of publications (all in three copies, sorted in three identical bundles) should be sent to The Department of Physics and Technology, University of Bergen, Allegaten 55, NO 5007 Bergen, Norway. Salary begins at grade 54 (code 1011) of the Norwegian civil service salary scale. (Grade 54 currently equates to NOK 389,600 gross p.a.) For any questions contact Prof. Nikolai Ostgaard.

Deadline for application is April 15, 2007. Starting date, as soon as possible.
