Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) in Solar Physics Application at  IUCAA

Applications are invited for a Junior or Senior Research Fellowship within the Max-Planck Partner Group of the Max-Planck Institute for Solar System Research at the Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA) on the Coupling and Dynamics of the Solar Atmosphere. The group is funded by the Max-Planck Society, Germany. The selected candidate is supposed to work within the solar physics group at IUCAA, Pune.

The research project involves analysis of the observations recorded by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), Hinode and the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) to study the dynamic coupling between the different layers of the atmosphere.

Eligibility:
The research project involves analysis of the observations recorded by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), Hinode and the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) to study the dynamic coupling between the different layers of the atmosphere.

Remuneration/Fellowship: Fellowship shall be Rs 25000/- for a candidate without any relevant research experience. For a candidate with one year of relevant research experience, the fellowship shall be Rs 28000/-  

Deadline for application: October 10, 2017

Post-Doctoral Fellow (PDF) in The Solar Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (SUIT) Payload on board Aditya-L1 at  IUCAA

The Aditya-L1 mission of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) will be a unique space-based Solar Observatory, which will observe the Sun from the vantage location of the first Sun-Earth Lagrange point (L1), about 1.5 million kilometers away from Earth. The mission is scheduled to be launched in 2020 and is nominally planned for a five-year lifetime with the possibility of longer operations. The Solar Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (SUIT) payload on board Aditya-L1 will provide full disk images of the Sun in 11 different passbands between 2000-4000 A that will map the solar atmosphere from lower photosphere to upper chromosphere. Using on board intelligence, SUIT will also be capable of locating and tracking exciting areas of the Sun like active regions, flares, prominences, etc. The two primary science goals that SUIT will address are the magnetic coupling of the solar atmosphere and variation of spatially resolved solar spectral irradiance in the near ultraviolet wavelength range, which is central to Sun-climate relations.

Eligibility:
Candidates who have either submitted their Ph.D. thesis or are already holding a Ph.D. in Physics, Astronomy and Astrophysics, Solar Physics or other related areas including instrumentation can apply. Basic skills in programming with Matlab, Interactive Data Language (IDL) and/or Python will be useful. The candidate should be willing to learn the requisite abilities quickly.

Remuneration/Fellowship: Fellowship Rs 40,000/- per month. Contingency Rs 40,000/- per year.
