Solar and Stellar Physics

Description: The solar cycle varies with a period of 22 years, most clearly observed by strong magnetic field regions on the surface of the Sun that can produce massive solar flares that can impact Earth and our space-based technology. These active regions emerge from the interior of the Sun, but it is not known from what depth they emerge, nor when this will occur. By understanding the evolution of the magnetic field and near-surface flows before, during, and after the emergence, we will be able to better understand the physics of the dynamo process as a whole.

Financial limit: $28,092 per annum (2020 rate) indexed annually. For a PhD candidate, the living allowance scholarship is for 3.5 years and the tuition fee scholarship is for four years.

Eligibility Criteria
We are looking for a motivated, independent student with a 1st class Honours (or expected) degree, or equivalent. Experience in coding would be an advantage. We pride ourselves on being a gender-balanced physics department. Women and applicants from under-represented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

How to apply:
Interested applicants should send an email expressing their interest along with scanned copies of their academic transcripts, CV, a brief statement of their research interests and a proposal that specifically links them to the research project.
Please submit documents as ONE pdf file attachment with your surname as the filename (e.g. Schunker.pdf) and with a subject line of “PhD Application 2021”.

Applications will be reviewed after the priority deadline on 6 December 2020. Shortlisted candidates will be notified and proceed to interviews via Zoom in the week 14-18 December 2020.
