Opening of a Postdoctoral Position on Computational Solar Physics at YNAO
A postdoctoral fellowship is available in theoretical studies of Solar Activities and Eruptions group in Yunnan Observatories. The group mainly focuses on investigations of solar activities and eruptions, looking into the basic mechanisms of different kinds of activities in the solar atmosphere, understanding the physics of the impact of solar eruptions on the Earth and the nearby environment.
One of the research projects of the group is about numerical studies of small scale solar activities in the low solar atmosphere, in which radiative cooling, strong density stratification and partial ionization effects are important. The postdoc will help the researcher in this group to develop magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) codes according to the needs of performing this project.
1. The successful applicant must have a PhD degree in astrophysics, computational mathematics, theoretical physics, or in the related fields.
2. The successful applicant should be good at developing the MHD code, or possesses the potential in coding. They should be familiar with C/C++, Fortran, and/or Python, have the basic knowledge about the advanced algorithms for solving partial differential equations, and are capable of dealing with algorithms of the data structure and capable of visualizing data.
3. The successful applicant should have strong aspirations on their careers, have the team work spirit, and can communicate well with colleagues.
Salary and benefits:
The salary is between RMB200,000 to RMB300,000 per year. An apartment for rent in the institute is available.
