Welcome to the Space and Atmospheric Physics Group

We are now recruiting PhD students to start in October 2018. Click here to find out more.

We are seeking to fill two studentships in space physics: 

  • How does Ganymede's complex magnetic environment work? Contact Adam Masters. Project description: 2018 Masters project 1‌. This project is funded by the Royal Society.

If interested, please contact the relevant supervisor as soon as possible


The Space and Atmospheric Physics group is part of the Department of Physics in the Faculty of Natural Sciences at Imperial College. We are also strongly involved in the Grantham Institute - Climate Change and the Environment - and the  Imperial Space Lab. Our aims are to undertake world-class research, and to train young scientists, in both experimental and theoretical aspects of Space Physics and Atmospheric Physics. You can use the navigation bar above to find information about our Research Activities and about Postgraduate Studies with us. You can also find out about the space and earth observation missions that we are involved in, and read the latest news on all aspects of the group's activities.
