Northumbria University (Newcastle upon Tyne, UK) – PhD position in Solar Physics

May 13, 2019, from Patrick Antolin

Northumbria University is currently advertising a PhD position in the field of Solar Physics within the Department of Mathematics, Physics and Electrical Engineering. The PhD project is titled “The Coronal Cooling problem” and will have as principal supervisor Dr. Patrick Antolin.

The project’s main motivation is the study of fundamental physical processes of stellar atmospheres, such as coronal heating, MHD waves and plasma instabilities. To achieve deeper understanding of these processes we will focus on the observational and/or computational investigation of cool material in the solar atmosphere and in particular, coronal rain and prominences.

We are primarily looking for strongly motivated applicants with a degree in Mathematics, Physics or Astrophysics. Previous experience of numerical modelling, observational data analysis and computer programming is desirable but not essential. For further information related to the details of the project please contact Dr Patrick Antolin: patrick.antolin@gmail.com

The Department has particular strengths in Solar Physics and Space Weather. For more information about the Group, visit https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/about-us/academic-departments/mathematics-physics-and-electrical-engineering/research/solar-physics/.

The deadline for applications is 1st July 2019 and the starting date is 1st October 2019.
