Research Associate in Radio Wave Investigations of the Space Environment

University of Bath - Electronic & Electrical Engineering

Location: Bath
Salary: £37,099 to £44,263 Grade 7, per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 28th February 2024
Closes: 13th March 2024
Job Ref: FM11482

About the role:

The NERC-funded RISER project will exploit the use of the LOw Frequency ARray (LOFAR) - the world's largest low-frequency radio-telescope - for characterising space weather conditions.

One of the main aims of the RISER project is to study the scintillation of radio waves emitted from radio objects at various frequencies and to model the propagation problem by utilising LOFAR observations. This allows to understand how LOFAR could be utilised to infer the impact of space weather on applications.

You will study and model radio wave scintillation originating from large-to-small scale plasma density irregularities by utilising evidence from LOFAR observations. You will also study the use of LOFAR observations for the characterisation of space weather impact on systems and applications.

You will have the opportunity to work in a dynamic environment and to build their research profile in space weather science. They will be supported to travel to meetings and to share their research with the wider community as opportunities arise throughout the project.

This is a full-time position, fixed term from April 2024 to August 2028.

For an informal discussion about the role please contact Dr Biagio Forte at B.Forte@bath.ac.uk.
