The University of Eastern Finland, UEF, is one of the largest multidisciplinary universities in Finland. We offer education in nearly one hundred major subjects, and are home to approximately 15,000 students and 2,800 members of staff. We operate on three campuses in Joensuu, Kuopio and Savonlinna. In international rankings, we are ranked among the leading 300 universities in the world.
The Faculty of Science and Forestry operates on the Kuopio and Joensuu campuses of the University of Eastern Finland. The mission of the faculty is to carry out internationally recognised scientific research and to offer research-education in the fields of natural sciences and forest sciences. The faculty invests in all of the strategic research areas of the university. The faculty's environments for research and learning are international, modern and multidisciplinary. The faculty has approximately 3,800 Bachelor's and Master's degree students and some 490 postgraduate students. The number of staff amounts to 560. http://www.uef.fi/en/lumet/etusivu
We are now inviting applications for
a Postdoctoral Researcher in aerosol dynamics; especially modelling, data analysis and inverse problems, Department of Applied Physics, Kuopio Campus
The position is placed at the interface between the research areas Aerosols, climate change and human health and Methods and applications of uncertainty modelling, the former of which is one of the top level international research areas and the latter one of the emerging research areas of the University of Eastern Finland, see http://www.uef.fi/en/web/guest/research/researchareas2015-2020
The research focus is analysis of aerosol size distribution data by combining detailed aerosol dynamics modelling and methods of inverse problems. Analysing aerosol experiments typically involves estimating parameters such as particle formation rates, growth/evaporation rates, wall loss rates etc. Their direct determination is, however, not typically straightforward as these parameters are entangled through a system of partial differential equations. The Postdoctoral Researcher will develop methods to analyse measurement data both from detailed chamber experiments as well as field campaigns.
A person to be appointed as a postdoctoral researcher shall hold a suitable doctoral degree. Positions of postdoctoral researchers shall always be filled for a fixed term (UEF Administrative Regulations 30 §).
The person to be appointed to the Postdoctoral Researcher position is required to hold a doctoral degree, which may not have been completed more than five years ago at the time of accepting the position. In this context, the 5 years refer to a net period of time, which does not include maternity leaves, parental leaves, or military service, etc.
The successful candidate should have a suitable background in mathematics, physics or scientific computing. Experience in aerosol dynamics modeling and/or computational methods in inverse problems is an advantage.
The position will be filled for a fixed term of 3 years starting January 1, 2017 or as agreed.
The salary of the position is determined in accordance with the salary system of Finnish universities and is based on level 5 of the job requirement level chart for teaching and research staff (€2,865.30/ month). In addition to the job requirement component, the salary includes a personal performance component, which may be a maximum of 46.3% of the job requirement component.
For further information on the position, please contact: Kari Lehtinen, tel. +358 40 867 7844, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or Jari Kaipio, tel. +64 21 288 5300, email: email@example.com, or Ville Kolehmainen, tel. +358 40 355 2054, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information on the application procedure, please contact: Executive Head of Administration Arja Hirvonen, tel. +358 44 716 3422, email: email@example.com.
A probationary period is applied to all new members of the staff.
The electronic application should contain the following appendices:
- a résumé or CV
- a list of publications
- a motivation letter, including description of applicant's research expertise and interests (max 2 pages)
- copies of the applicant's academic degree certificates/ diplomas, and copies of certificates / diplomas relating to the applicant's language proficiency, if not indicated in the academic degree certificates/diplomas
The application needs to be submitted no later than November 2, 2016 (by 24.00 hours Finnish time) by using the electronic application form.
