Do you want to take part in shaping the future?Researcher within computational space physics
At the Department of Physics and Technology there is a vacancy for a position as a researcher within computational space physics.
The first five years the position is financed by the ERC project "DynaMIT".About the project/work tasks:
The goal of the DynaMIT project is to understand and explain how Earth's atmosphere is dynamically coupled to space. To achieve this, we will create a new simulation code based on a first-principles dynamic fluid description of the interaction between space plasma, the neutral atmosphere, and electromagnetic fields. We are seeking a skilled Lead Developer with a proven track record in developing dynamic fluid computational models, with expertise in numerical methods and computer programming. In addition, the candidate should have experience in developing high performance code, as well as designing modular and flexible software architecture. As the Lead Developer, you will work closely with the other developer and collaborate with the rest of the project team as well as national and international partners.
This is a unique opportunity to work on a challenging and cutting-edge project that will advance our understanding of how Earth's atmosphere is coupled with space. If you are passionate about modelling and are committed to producing high-quality results, we encourage you to apply for this position.Qualifications and personal qualities:
In assessing the candidates, a review of both the quality and the breadth of the candidate's research will be conducted. Personal and relational qualities will be emphasized.
