An early career Postdoc (m/w/d)

''Energy transformation, turbulence and acceleration in space plasmas''

Your tasks

Space plasmas present intriguing puzzles to the scientific community. Impulsive energy release events are observed and challenge our understanding on how energy is transformed from one form to another. To investigate these events, we use spacecraft observations from missions such as MAVEN, Juno, Cassini, MMS and Cluster. The young scientist will be involved in the analysis of the observational data. The project is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation with the goal to support a trilateral partnership between scientists from Ukraine, Russia and Germany.

Your profile

An appropriate master degree or higher is required.

A background in space plasmas in the terrestrial or planetary magnetosphere and experience in the data analysis of scientific instruments would be helpful.

Candidates must be able to develop software independently. Proficiency in Python is an advantage.

Because of the international collaborations involved, proficiency in the English language is essential.

Our offer:

We offer you an interesting and responsible workplace with good opportunities for further training and development. Your workplace is centrally located in Munich and can be easily reached by public transport. Classification is according to TV-L, pay group 13. The position is available as of March 1, 2021 (alternative starting dates can be negotiated) and will be for 18 Months.
