The Geophysical and Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics research group in the Mathematics Department at the University of Exeter is offering a PhD studentship on modelling instabilities in electrically conducting fluid dynamics. This will involve the study of nonlinear partial differential equations that govern the fluid velocity and the magnetic field. These will be solved using a combination of analytical and computational techniques. The student should have a strong background in applied mathematics or a related field and a keen interest in fluid dynamics. The position is funded by the STFC for 3.5 years.
