STFC-funded PhD positions at Aberystwyth University – closing date March 1st 2019

January 27, 2019, from Huw Morgan

The Solar System Physics research group (https://www.aber.ac.uk/en/phys/research/solar/) 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, ionospheric modelling and ground-based spectro-polarimetry of the low corona.

Applications are due by March 1st, 2019 for a September start. Successful candidates are expected to attend the appropriate STFC Introductory Summer School in August. Outstanding applications will also be entered for the Aberystwyth University PostDoctoral scholarship schemes. Applications should follow the PhD scholarship instructions at https://www.aber.ac.uk/en/postgrad/fees-finance/uk-eu/research-competition/ , thus a description of the proposed research project is required. Please therefore talk to a potential supervisor to help prepare this part of the application.

For initial enquiries, please contact Head of Group, Dr. Huw Morgan, by email: hmorgan@aber.ac.uk.
