Associate Professorship in Solar Physics (ref no 2017/11394)
The primary goal of RoCS' 10-year effort lies in understanding the workings of the energetic Sun. To attack this goal a concerted effort of numerical modelling, both fluid (extended MHD) and particle oriented, will be combined with high quality observations taken at ground based and space based observatories to produce models of the active Sun. The Solar group at the ITA is presently led by Mats Carlsson, who will also become leader of RoCS. The group has an internationally leading competence in radiative transfer and radiative hydrodynamics. Observationally, the group has access to the Swedish 1-meter Solar Telescope on La Palma, to ALMA, to several space based satellites such as NASA's IRIS and SDO, JAXA's Hinode and in the near future ESA's Solar Orbiter. The group utilizes strongly local, national and international High-Performance Computing facilities. With the RoCS centre of excellence, the Solar group will expand significantly.
