February 19, 2020, from Huw Morgan

The Solar System Physics research group within the Physics Department of Aberystwyth University seeks high-quality candidates for STFC-funded PhD projects in the field of Solar System Physics. The group has particular strengths in solar and solar atmospheric physics – modelling and observations. Our recent work concentrates on the development of novel data analysis techniques for solar atmospheric images, sources of space weather, advanced numerical modelling of coronal structures, and ground-based spectro-polarimetry of the low corona.

Applications are due by April 1st, 2020 for a September start. Successful candidates are encouraged to attend the appropriate STFC Summer School in August. Applications should follow the PhD application instructions at
