Funded PhD positions at Aberystwyth University – closing date end January 2022
The Solar System Physics research group within the Physics Department of Aberystwyth University seeks 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 and solar wind. 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, advanced numerical modelling of coronal structures, and impacts of space weather on planetary atmospheres. We also develop new instrumentation for coronal and planetary applications.
Applications are due by end January 2022 for a September 2022 start. Outstanding applications will also be entered for the Aberystwyth University Aberdoc scholarship competition. Applicants should follow the instructions at https://www.aber.ac.uk/en/study-with-us/fees/postgrad/uk/research/aberdoc/ ; note that 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 Dr. Huw Morgan, by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
