The School of Science and Engineering at the University of Dundee is recruiting for an exceptional individual to join us as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant within our Magnetohydrodynamics research group, to work on an STFC-funded project studying the acceleration of the solar wind.
The project aims to assess the contribution of interchange reconnection to the slow solar wind. This will involve analysing the 3D magnetic field topology of the Sun’s corona and designing and performing large-scale MHD simulations of interchange reconnection processes.
The School of Science and Engineering has an international reputation for excellent teaching and topical research, particularly in addressing global challenges in energy, the environment, health care, technology, forensic science and infrastructure. The School comprises the disciplines of Mathematics, Physics, Computing, Mechanical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Civil Engineering as well as the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification (CAHID).
