PhD in Solar Interior-Atmosphere Linkages & Space Weather Applications

The School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Birmingham invites applications for a PhD by research in solar physics and use of the HiSPARC network for space weather applications.

The student will be working with Professor Bill Chaplin and Dr Rachel Howe of the Solar and Stellar Physics Group to look at combinations solar data (various, both atmospheric and internal/helioseismic) and heliospheric data (various) to study linkages between solar interior, solar atmosphere and heliosphere.… continue to the full article
