About

The Physics and Astronomy programme of the University of Glasgow covers a wide range of topics, including solar and plasma physics, cosmology and radio astronomy. Much of our research in solar physics concentrates on the theory, diagnostics and observation of solar flares, complementing our work in more general plasma theory and atmospheric plasmas.

Overview

Current funded studentships

Studentships are available each year (from STFC, EPSRC and others). You should discuss opportunities with potential supervisors within the relevant research group listed.

The research in radio astronomy and cosmology ranges from low frequency astronomy in space to probing the distribution of dark matter with galaxy surveys are areas studied in the Physics and Astronomy programme of the University of Glasgow.

Our strong collaborations with UK and international institutions contribute to an excellent environment for top quality research.

  • We lead QuantIC, the UK's four Quantum Technology Hub
  • We host two EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training
  • We are a member of Scottish Universities Physics Alliance (SUPA)
