PhD studentship in solar radio physics


Coronal Mass Ejection and radio source imaged by LOFAR and SDO (see details here)

A fully funded PhD studentship is available in the area of Solar Radio Physics at the University of Glasgow. It is a joint UK-Franco project supported by Direction Générale de l’Armement (DGA) and Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl). The successful candidate will be based in Glasgow in the Astronomy & Astrophysics group ( and they will closely collaborate with Paris Observatory, Meudon. The PhD student will work with imaging and spectroscopic data from the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR), developing simulations to establish more detailed links between radio transient phenomena and the fine structures in radio burst spectra.

The student should have a minimum of a 2.1 honours degree or higher in a relevant discipline and should be a UK or French National. The anticipated start date is 1st October 2016. Interested candidates should email Dr Kontar.
