Project Description

We are offering PhD positions in the Solar and Stellar Physics Group which will focus on precise modelling of Sun-like and red-giant stars for detailed tests of stellar physics, and for characterising Galactic stellar populations. The research activities of the group are centred on studies of the Sun, stars, the characterization of exoplanet systems, and stellar population studies, using in particular the techniques of helio- and asteroseismology. Members of the group have leading positions in major international projects, such as Kepler, K2, PLATO and TESS. The group also runs its own global network of helioseismic observatories, the Birmingham Solar-Oscillations Network (BiSON).

For details please contact Professor Yvonne Elsworth ()
