4 Fully-funded PhD Opportunities (Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK)

December 1, 2020, from James McLaughlin

Please find below 4 fully-funded PhD adverts in the areas of Solar Physics and Magnetosphere, Ionosphere and Solar-Terrestrial (MIST), for PhD opportunities within the Solar Physics research group at Northumbria University (Newcastle upon Tyne, UK). The Solar Physics group is a large and successful research group, and our long-term programme is to understand all aspects of the solar-terrestrial connection. Evidence of the group’s success includes funding from STFC (including an Ernest Rutherford Fellow), NERC, Leverhulme Trust, Royal Astronomical Society, the US Air Force, and a UKRI Future Leader Fellow. The group also plays multiple roles in the UKRI SWIMMR (Space Weather Instrumentation, Measurement, Modelling and Risk) programme in support of the UK Met Office.

The 4 PhD opportunities are:
==================================================
• Oscillatory Reconnection: the physics of time-dependent, wave-generating reconnection
