Funded PhD positions in Solar System Science at Aberystwyth University

Aberystwyth University’s Physics Department is seeking high-quality candidates for 3-yr-funded PhD projects in the field of Solar System Physics. The group has particular strengths in modelling and observational analysis of the solar atmosphere/solar wind, space weather forecasting, and instrument development for space missions. Our recent work concentrates on the development of novel data analysis techniques for solar atmospheric images, ground-based spectropolarimetric analysis of the quiescent and flaring corona, space weather studies and forecasting (including machine learning), advanced numerical modelling of coronal structures, and lunar surface impactors. We develop new instrumentation for solar and planetary applications, and particularly welcome applications in this field for the 2023 round.

Applications are due by May 31st 2023 for a September 2023 start.

Applicants should follow the instructions at . Informal enquiries are welcome, and we encourage potential applicants to talk to relevant members of staff. To discuss ideas for projects, please contact Prof Huw Morgan in the first instance by email:
