Applications are invited for a four-year, full-time doctoral student 
position. The successful candidate will study space weather effects on 
the high-latitude ionospheric current systems and 
magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling. The project will utilize data from 
the Swarm satellites and ground-based magnetometers (e.g. SuperMAG and 
IMAGE), together with other satellite and ground-based measurements. The 
position will be placed in the Ionospheric Physics research unit at the 
Faculty of Science, University of Oulu. In the unit the coupled 
magnetosphere-ionosphere-thermosphere system is studied by utilizing 
data from different satellite missions (e.g. Swarm and Cluster) and from 
versatile ground-based instruments, including the EISCAT incoherent 
scatter radars. We are looking for candidates with MSc degree in 
Physics, Space Physics, Computational Physics or a closely related 
field. Experience in programming and earlier studies in Space Physics 
are an advantage.
