New Job Opportunities at SERENE

We are looking to recruit three Research Fellows, each for 34 months, funded by the Space Weather Instrumentation, Measurement, Modelling and Risk (SWIMMR) programme.

SWIMMR is a £20 million, three-year programme that will improve the UK’s capabilities for space weather monitoring and prediction with an emphasis on space radiation, changes in the upper atmosphere and, unwanted currents in power grids and other ground-level systems.

In SERENE, at the University of Birmingham, our work on SWIMMR is focused on improved modelling of the ionosphere and thermosphere based around our physics-based data assimilation model AENeAS.

We are seeking to appoint:

* Research Fellow focused on novel data assimilation techniques for upper atmosphere models (
* Research Fellow focused on modelling and geolocation of ionospheric scintillation (   
* Research Fellow focused on improved thermospheric density modelling for satellite orbit determination (

The final models will be used by the UK Met Office to forecast the upper atmosphere for aviation applications and orbit determination of satellites in low Earth orbit.
