The Solar Observatories Group at Stanford University invites applications for research scientist positions at the Hansen Experimental Physics Laboratory. Your research work will focus on analysis of observations made by the Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager (HMI) instrument on NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), including magnetograms, Dopplergrams, and vector magnetic field, as well as data from other solar instruments. Modelers whose research supports such data analysis or data improvements are also welcome to apply. You will work with HMI science-team members to investigate the structure and dynamics of the Sun’s magnetic field, the Sun’s interior structure, and flow fields, in support of the goals of the NASA-sponsored SDO/HMI investigation. Information about the HMI project can be found at http://hmi.stanford.edu

 

A PhD or equivalent in astrophysics or a related field is required. Applicants who have experience with solar data analysis, can contribute to proposals for new research, have a strong publication record, and who have interest in working with students are preferred. Please provide a complete CV, one-page statement of research interests, and names of three references. 

 

These will be 3-year fixed-term positions with a possibility for extension based on performance and the availability of funding. Applications received by May 15, 2021 will be given immediate consideration.
