  Theory and Simulations of Space Weather in the Earth’s Magnetosphere
  Dr AN Wright
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The environment surrounding a planet dominated by its magnetic field (called the magnetosphere) shields the planet from the solar wind.
  Particle Acceleration in Solar Flares
  Prof T Neukirch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A major open question in the physics of solar flares lies in describing the mechanisms responsible for generating significant populations of non-thermal particles.
  Simulating the Sun: Can We Predict Solar Storms ?
  Prof DH Mackay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnetic fields permeate and structure the atmosphere of the Sun. These magnetic fields can be seen to vary from the smallest to the largest scales presently observable.
  Coronal Heating by MHD Waves
  Prof I De Moortel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The question why the Sun’s outer atmosphere (corona) is so much hotter than the solar surface (photosphere) remains one of the most challenging open problems in Solar Physics.
  Magnetic flux emergence on the Sun.
  Dr V Archontis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A key open question in solar physics is how magnetic fields emerge from the solar interior to the surface of the Sun, to form sunspots and active regions.
