Project Description

We welcome you to apply for STFC-sponsored studentships in the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading. The Department hosts a vibrant Space and Atmospheric Electricity group whose research interests span the remit of Space Weather from the Sun through the heliosphere to Earth. In the Department of Meteorology, you will have access to state-of-the-art computing facilities and a large, internationally-renowned research community of 50 academics, over 100 post-doctoral scientists and around 70 PhD students. Our large PhD student community is especially welcoming, providing support and professional opportunities to enhance your postgraduate studies.

Advances in Coronal Mass Ejection imaging over the past two decades have revealed detailed structure that is not explained by simple geometric modelling. In this study the successful candidate will investigate the origin of this complex structure by combining long-term data sets such as from the SOHO and STEREO spacecraft while benefitting from new insights from the more recent Solar Orbiter and Parker Solar Probe missions.

For further enquiries, please contact Prof. Chris Scott ()
