Job description
The work will be within the Atmospheric and Environmental Physics group to utilise observational evidence to quantify the impact of solar and energetic particle effects on neutral atmosphere chemistry and dynamics. Satellite data, as well as ground-based atmospheric radar, airglow, and radiometer data will be examined for such signatures. The position will be part of the Birkeland Centre for Space Science (BCSS), a Research Council of Norway international collaborative Centre of Excellence. Hence the position, located at NTNU, will provide abundant opportunities for scientific cooperation with both the international and Norwegian space-science communities.

The candidate will be required to have a PhD in Atmospheric Science, Space Physics, Astrophysics or a related field, with strong data analysis, statistical, and programming skills. In addition, practical experience handling and interpreting large datasets and/or atmospheric models is essential, as is verbal and written fluency in English. A demonstrated ability to disseminate findings orally at professional meetings and workshops, and previous authorship of high impact publications in the field of Space/Atmospheric Physics is desirable, but not essential. The successful applicant should be highly competent, motivated and ambitious, with excellent communication skills, both oral and written.

Terms of employment
Postdoctoral candidates are placed in code 1352, and normal gross remuneration is from NOK 545 300 per annum before tax, depending on qualifications and seniority. There is a 2% deduction as a contribution to the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund. The engagement is to be made in accordance with the regulations in force concerning State Employees and Civil Servants, and the acts relating to Control of the Export of Strategic Goods, Services and Technology. Candidates who by assessment of the application and attachment are seen to conflict with the criteria in the latter law will be prohibited from recruitment to NTNU. After the appointment, you must assume that there may be changes in the area of work.
