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
