Lecturer in Space Environment Risk Reduction
Publication date: 11 August 2014
A new joint lectureship position has been created between UCL IRDR and the UCL Mullard Space Science Laboratory (MSSL). The lectureship will focus on the understanding, assessment and mitigation of risks associated with the Earth’s ionosphere and magnetosphere, either in association with space plasma events (e.g. space weather) or as an indicator of developing high-risk situations (e.g. earthquakes).
Research Associate for Euclid Weak Lensing Science
Publication date: 4 July 2014
We are seeking an experienced postdoctoral researcher in cosmology to make key contributions to the Euclid weak lensing science programme. Euclid is a paradigm-changing ESA satellite mission. It will survey 75% of the extra-galactic sky in optical and near infra-red bands, resulting in resolved observations of 1.5 billion galaxies for weak lensing measurements. This will enable the expansion history and growth of structure to be mapped to unprecedented accuracy allowing definitive statements on the nature of dark energy to be made, and to test Einstein gravity on cosmic scales.
