Postdoctoral Researcher (m/f/d) in Solar Physics

The Leibniz-Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Position in solar physics. The successful candidate will work in the framework of the BMBF ErUM project D-LOFAR-ERIC, beginning 2024 July 1. D-LOFAR-ERIC is a joint project of 7 German institutions and aims at contributing to the software development for new functionalities provided by the upgrade of the LOw Frequency ARray (LOFAR) radio telescope to LOFAR2.0.
The postdoctoral researcher will be responsible for AIP's contribution to the project, with a focus on software development and data analysis for solar observations, in close collaboration with international partners in the Key Science Project "Solar and Heliospheric Physics with LOFAR". Key objectives are simultaneous observations of the solar corona in LOFAR's low- and high-band, the associated calibration challenges, methods for automatic detection of solar radio bursts, and collaboration with ongoing efforts to increase the space weather capabilities of LOFAR, like dual-beam observations in the high-band.
