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.

In this project, the recently launched Parker Solar Probe and the upcoming Solar Orbiter missions provide the first direct observations of the newly formed solar wind. These data will be used to test state-of-the-art theories of solar wind energisation and release.

For further enquiries, please contact Prof. Mathew Owens ()
