PhD Studentship: Observing the Sun as a Star

University of Birmingham - School of Physics & Astronomy

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: Birmingham
Funding for: UK Students, EU Students, International Students
Funding amount: Competition funded
Hours: Full Time
Placed On: 28th November 2022
Closes: 15th January 2023

The Sun is the only star we know for sure has no orbiting planets in the data - since we can remove them perfectly. That makes it the perfect star to study and eventually aid the search for small planets orbiting other stars. This project will help with the deployment and then usage of a new polarising Solar Telescope to be connected to the brand-new HARPS3 spectrograph on La Palma. This will be a unique telescope-instrument combination. Data from the already running HARPS-N Solar Telescope will be used in complement and to test the new telescope.

This project relies on collecting observations in foreign observatories. Students able to travel will be preferred.
