"Just thinking of sizes and distances in space is just mind blowing and impossible to grasp, but also what makes astronomy so very interesting" – Jonas Thoen Faber.
"That light carries information over extreme distances and explains faraway events! That's what fascinates me about astronomy" – Elias Roland Udnæs.
European Solar Physics Division awarded Kohutova "for important contributions to the understanding of thermal instability in the solar atmosphere, combining observations, theory, and modelling.”
The International Astronomical Union has awarded Souvik Bose the best PhD Prize 2021 within the “Sun and Heliosphere” division. 120 Ph.D. theses were submitted for the award consideration. Bose did his doctoral studies at the Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics, Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics, UiO.
- I am Reetika Joshi, an Indian girl coming from a small town in the foothills of Himalaya. Meet RoCS newest Postdoctoral Fellow.
Eilif Sommer Øyre is new to RoCS. The Doctoral Research Fellow chose solar physics to learn more about physics, computer science, and what it means to be a researcher in astrophysics.
Mats-Ola Sand's decision to stay on after his astronomy studies as a Doctoral Research Fellow at ITA and RoCS comes down to two factors: exciting opportunities and a friendly environment.
"What motivates me in research is the hope that I can figure out something brand new in physics" - PhD student Johannes Røsok Eskilt.
"There is something really compelling to me about cosmology in general, that we are able to answer philosophical questions quantitatively" - Duncan Watts.
Tired of zoom meetings and home office, RoCS PhD student Rebecca Robinson arranged herself a job on the Hurtigruten as an Expedition Lecturer. The lectures on the Sun and the Northern Lights are part of the doctoral degree at the Department of Theoretical Astrophysics.
RoCS - Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics is in steady cruise phase after their lift off as a Centre of Excellence (SFF) 1st of November 2017. With 48 employees from around the world they aim high.
This autumn three young Ph.D.candidates started their work journey at RoCS - Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics. Michael Haahr from Denmark is one of them.
- The Whole Sun Project, provides a unique opportunity for me to work and collaborate with experts from other European institutions, says the latest newcomer to RoCS. His name is Avijeet Prasad and he is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow.
- Three years ago, I decided to become a software developer, says Wojciech Olejarz. And this spring he started working for RoCS - Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics.
– The night sky is so much prettier once you start to understand the physics behind the light reaching us from distant objects.
– What fascinates me the most about astronomy must be the whole composition of it.
- The most fascinating thing about astronomy is that us humans, not living in any special location in the Universe, have figured out the way to learn about its vastness and evolution.
– What could be more exciting than to uncover the very nature of reality by studying the contents of the Universe! There is no other field of science that researches a thing as fundamental as the very Universe itself!
- The official starting date is the 1st of July and I'm very excited to get the project up and running, says Postdoctoral Fellow Petra Kohutova who received the grant from The Norwegian Research Council.
Many people start in astrophysics because of the beauty in trying to understand the mysteries of our universe. Myself (and maybe others?) because we like the beauty of using computers in challenging ways plus cool mathematics when applied to astrophysics, writes Maria Guadalupe Barios Sazo at RoCS - Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics.
"Living in Scandinavia was also a personal dream, since I have always admired the lifestyle and the well-being generally associated to these countries" - Davide Decataldo.
Marianne Omang has been affiliated with RoCS as an adjunct professor since she finished her PhD in 2005.
Bhavna Rathore uses her background from programming in astrophysics to working with ultrasound scanning devices as a system engineer.
– I worked as a Postdoc at RoCS - Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics, because of its excellent reputation in the solar physics community, says Pia Zacharias about her life after PhD studies.
An Early Career Researcher Prize has been awarded to Dr. Daniel Nóbrega-Siverio working at Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics, UiO.
