PhD students in Astronomy (3)

at the Department of Astronomy. Closing date: 15 January 2018.

The department consists of 15 faculty staff, ~20 senior and postdoctoral researchers, and ~25 PhD students. Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and has an international character. Most Stockholm researchers have an international background and English is commonly used both at the department and in daily life.

Project description 
The department invites applications in the following research areas:

  • Supernovae,

The supernova group is looking for a PhD-student interested to work with the new Zwicky Transient Facility to discover young supernovae. The project is mostly observational and includes working in a large international collaboration.

  • Galaxies,

We seek a PhD student that is interested primarily in observational projects concerning galaxy formation and evolution. Projects may include studies of strongly star-forming galaxies or ultra-diffuse galaxies/low-surface brightness galaxies. Facilities include, among others, the Hubble Space Telescope or ESO’s Very Large Telescope.

  • Solar Physics,

We announce a PhD position to study the physics of active region and flares in the solar chromosphere. This project involves modelling of very high resolution spectropolarimetric observations acquired with the CRISP and CHROMIS instruments at the Swedish 1-m Solar Telescope (SST). The selected candidate will compute and analyze empirical 3D models from these observations using data inversion techniques.

Qualification requirements
In order to meet the general entry requirements, the applicant must have completed a second-cycle degree, completed courses equivalent to at least 240 higher education credits, of which 60 credits must be in the second cycle, or have otherwise acquired equivalent knowledge in Sweden or elsewhere.

In order to meet the specific entry requirements, the applicant for a studentship at a researcher level in astronomy must have completed 60 credits of non-overlapping courses in physics/astronomy at an advanced level. Of these, at least 30 credits should be in the form of independent work in astronomy, with a passing grade. The specific entry level requirements can also be fulfilled through having equivalent documented competence.

Only a person who will be or has already been admitted to a third-cycle programme may be appointed to a doctoral studentship. The primary assessment criteria in appointing a doctoral student should be the capacity to benefit from the training.

Selection
The selection among the eligible candidates will be based on their capacity to benefit from the training. The following criteria will be used to assess this capacity: the candidates’ documented knowledge in a relevant field of research, written and oral, the capacity for analytical thinking, the ability to collaborate, as well as creativity, initiative, and independence. The assessment will be based on previous experience and grades, the quality of the degree project, references, relevant experience, interviews, and the candidate’s written motivation for seeking the position.

Admission Regulations for Doctoral Studies at Stockholm University are available at: www.su.se/rules.

Terms of employment
The term of the initial contract may not exceed one year. The employment may be extended for a maximum of two years at a time. However, the total period of employment may not exceed the equivalent of four years of full-time study.

Doctoral students should primarily devote themselves to their own education, but may engage in teaching, research, and administration corresponding to a maximum of 20% of a full-time position.

Please note that admission decisions cannot be appealed.

Stockholm University strives to be a workplace free from discrimination and with equal opportunities for all.
