Planetary Magnetospheric Physics
Researchers are studying the magnetic fields and magnetospheres of Jupiter, Saturn, Mars and Mercury, the environment around Venus, which is the only large planet in the solar system without an internal magnetic field, as well as the magnetic perturbations produced by small solar system bodies like asteroids and comets; current research topics include: magnetospheres of Jupiter and Saturn; planetary magnetic field modelling; magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling; analysis of atmosphere/ionosphere/magnetic environment around Venus; focus on Titan environment at Saturn; icy satellites such as Enceladus, Dione, Rhea, Thethys and their interaction with Saturn's magnetosphere.
A 2.1 Honours degree and a Master's in a relevant subject.
