Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in astrophysics (ref no 2017/11863)

Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics

Position Type
Full Time
Organization Type

Observational material is collected from space-borne and ground-based observatories. In interaction with and parallel to the observational activity, there is a strong activity in theoretical and computational astrophysics. The Institute is actively engaged in a large number of international collaborative programs, e.g., through the Norwegian membership in ESA, Norwegian participation in the Nordic Optical Telescope (NOT), the Institute's participation in the Swedish 1-m Solar Telescope on La Palma, the balloon-borne CMB polarization experiment Spider and the CO Mapping Array Pathfinder experiment COMAP at Owens Valley, California. Space missions with major participation from the Institute include the Japanese Hinode satellite, the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) and ESA's Solar Orbiter within solar physics, and Planck and Euclid within cosmology and extragalactic astrophysics. In theoretical and computational astrophysics the Institute has built up strong groups within numerical modelling and within the use of modern computational statistics methods in data analysis.
