Two PhD positions in the field of space science are available at the
Birkeland Centre for Space Science, University in Bergen, Norway. Each
position is for a fixed-term period of 4 years.
The PhD candidates will work in group 1 of the Birkeland Centre for
Space Science (https://birkeland.uib.no/research/asymmetric-geospace/).
The main research questions of this group are "Why is geospace
asymmetric?" and "What are the important temporal and spatial scales of
geospace dynamics?" The PhD projects will be part of this work and will
focus on data analyses, using measurements from satellites and ground
stations. Magnetic field measurements from ESA's Swarm satellites, the
Iridium satellite constellation, and the SuperMAG ground magnetometer
network will be particularly relevant. A specific PhD program will be
defined in consultation with the selected candidates.
The application deadline is 20 June. For more information about the
positions and how to apply, see
