Fully-funded PhD studentship in Solar Physics at University of Warwick

May 15, 2018, from Erwin Verwichte

The Centre for Fusion, Space, and Astrophysics (CFSA) at University of Warwick is advertising a fully-funded 3.5yr STFC PhD studentship, starting in October 2018. The students will have a degree in Physics, Mathematics or similar. There is no deadline for applications and interviews will take place from now until filled.

Research at the CFSA focuses on plasma physics applied to the grand challenges of magnetic and inertial fusion power, space physics, solar physics, and astrophysics. Our work spans fundamental theory, observation, and the analysis of experimental data, combined with high performance computing. The specific project currently advertised here pertain to solar physics. The CFSA considers all aspects of solar physics form the solar interior, out through the solar atmosphere and beyond, in the form of space weather. The project is entitled ‘The Physics of Wave Dynamics in the Solar Atmosphere’ and will examine the role of waves at the physical interface between hot (coronal) and cool (chromospheric) plasmas. This project will be supervised by Dr Erwin Verwichte and Prof. Tony Arber (contact erwin.verwichte@warwick.ac.uk for informal enquiries).
