Positions for post-doctoral and/or senior researchers are available at the

trial period.

ReSoLVE studies the long-term (multidecadal to centennial) magnetic
evolution of the Sun, which depicts a dramatic increase in the 20th century
and a recent decline, and the related changes in the inner heliosphere and
in the near-Earth environment. Specific research topics of ReSoLVE include,
e.g., the changing structure of solar magnetic fields, solar corona, solar
wind and the heliospheric magnetic field, and the effect of this change at
the Earth, causing electromagnetic disturbances, geomagnetic activity and
geomagnetic storms, energizing magnetospheric particles, and affecting the

We welcome applications from experts in any of these fields, especially in

education. The salary is based on the job demand level 5-7 of the salary
system for teaching and research staff in use in Finnish universities
(upper table in http://www.hallinto.oulu.fi/upj/ypj-palkat20130101.pdf).
Positions are for the first funding period. Extension is possible if ReSoLVE
is continued.

Oulu, the capital of Northern Finland at the Gulf of Bothnia of the Baltic
Sea, is a lively university town with a wealth of cultural activities and

international team, as well as the wild beauty of the Northern nature,
