PhD position in space physics at the Birkeland Centre for Space Science 

There is a vacancy for a PhD position at the Department of Physics and 
Technology of the University of Bergen in Norway.

The PhD will be part of a group in BCSS that explores how energetic 
particle precipitation can affect the chemistry and dynamics of the 
upper atmosphere in the polar region. We use the TED and MEPED detectors 
on board the NOAA/POES and EUMESAT/MetOP satellites to study the 
behavior of the precipitating electrons with energy 1-750 keV. The PhD 
work will focus on the nature of particle precipitation with the aim to 
develop a parameterization.

The successful candidate must hold a master-degree in space physics (or 
a related field), or must have submitted his/her master thesis for 
assessment prior to the application deadline. He/she should have 
knowledge as well as experience working with the physics related to 
particle precipitation into the atmosphere and/or the associated
