  Fine-scale electric fields and Joule heating from observations of the Aurora
  Dr R Fear, Dr D Whiter, Prof B Lanchester
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Earth’s aurora borealis (northern lights) are a spectacular natural phenomenon.
  Electrodynamics of the solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere-atmosphere coupled system (GEO/2020/MIL)
  Prof S Milan, Dr S Imber
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interaction of the solar wind with the Earth’s magnetic field leads to dynamic phenomena in near-Earth space, including the energization and circulation of plasma within the magnetosphere and ionosphere – the most visible manifestation of which is the polar auroras – which lead to a hostile environment for space- and ground-based technologies.
  Space weather at mid-latitudes: climatology, dynamics and drivers of atmospheric Joule heating
  Dr A Grocott, Prof J Wild
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Earth experiences ‘space weather’ that impacts the planetary environment in a variety of ways. These impacts are a recognised environmental hazard, as detailed in the UK National Risk Register.
  A new monitoring tool for Coastal Landslide Observatories (JOHNSONUENV20ARIES)
  Dr J Johnson, Prof R. Nicholls
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the face of climate change, our coasts are becoming increasingly vulnerable due to more extreme weather events as well as sea-level rise.
  PhD in Engineering: Quantum-enhanced atmospheric sensor for airborne hazard identification and tracking
  Dr M Clerici, Dr M P J Lavery
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a talented and passion-driven candidate to fulfil a 4-years PhD Scholarship at the University of Glasgow. The ideal candidate is a Physics or Engineering graduate, with 2:1 or higher (or equivalent) degree.
  Aurora caused by energetic proton precipitation into the polar atmosphere
  Dr D Whiter, Dr R Fear, Prof B Lanchester
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The aurora is a result of energised charged particles (electrons and protons) travelling down the Earth’s magnetic field lines and colliding with the neutral atmosphere.
