Research Scientist in Auroral Space Plasma Physics
Publication date: 20 March 2015
We are seeking a scientifically productive post-doctoral scientist to undertake research in the areas of space plasma physics and the dynamics of the terrestrial magnetosphere, with particular emphasis on auroral physics. This project is expected to utilise data from the Cluster mission as well as ancillary measurements. Due to recent orbital changes, the Cluster mission has traversed the auroral acceleration region for extended periods of time, enabling aspects of the spatial and temporal characteristics of auroral acceleration to be determined using multipoint measurements for the first time. The applicant will be expected to participate in wider group scientific activities including preparations for future space plasma research missions. The post is available immediately, initially for a period of 1 year, with a possible 3 year extension subject to funding availability.
Euclid Visible Instrument Scientist
Publication date: 12 March 2015
Applications are invited for the post of Instrument Scientist for the visible instrument (VIS) on Euclid, ESA’s Dark Energy mission, in which the Mullard Space Science Laboratory has a leading involvement. The successful applicant will provide scientific expertise, carry out performance modelling and develop calibration strategies. The role will require close collaboration with the instrument team and wider science teams involved in the Euclid project, as well as the other members of the Astrophysics Group at MSSL/UCL. The applicant will also be encouraged to pursue a programme of research in either gravitational lensing science or in galaxy formation and evolution. The post is initially for 2 years with the likelihood of further continuation.
