  Black hole astrophysics through timing studies
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Dr S Vaughan, Prof G Wynn
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Accreting black holes hold many mysteries despite five decades of study. They are too small to image directly and so to understand the physics of such systems we must rely on what we can learn from the variations in brightness and the energy spectrum of the light they emit.
  Do black holes affect how galaxies evolve?
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Dr J Aird, Prof MG Watson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Supermassive black holes are now thought to lurk at the centres of most, if not all, galaxies but it is still unclear how these black holes form, what drives their subsequent growth over the history of the Universe, and how they affect the galaxies they lie in.
  Dynamical evolution of super-massive black holes in galaxy centers
  Dr T Kouwenhoven, Dr T Mohaupt
Applications accepted all year round
The candidate should have a first class or upper second class honours degree, or a master’s degree (or equivalent qualification), in astronomy, physics, planetary sciences, applied mathematics, or related fields.
  Non-linear perturbations of cosmological models and black hole spacetimes
  Research Group: Geometry and Analysis
  Dr JA Valiente Kroon
Applications accepted all year round
The School of Mathematical Sciences of Queen Mary University of London invite applications for a PhD project commencing either in September 2019 for students seeking funding, or at any point in the academic year for self-funded students.
  Black holes, planets and dynamic accretion discs in astrophysics
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Dr C Nixon, Prof G Wynn
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Accretion discs are central to much of astronomy. they are the birth sites of stars and planets, and they surround supermassive black holes in active galaxies and quasars.
  Modelling and studying gravitational waves from black-hole-binary mergers
  Research Group: Gravitational Physics
  Prof M Hannam, Prof S Fairhurst
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Accurate models of the gravitational-wave signal emitted by generic configurations of black-hole binaries as they inspiral and collide, have been essential to measure the properties of the black holes observed in the first gravitational-wave detections from Advanced LIGO.
  Mapping the central regions of Active Galaxies on microarcsecond scales
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Dr M Goad, Dr S Vaughan
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Correlated continuum and broad emission line variability studies have proven a powerful probe of the central regions of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN).
  Surveying the sky for hungry black holes
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Dr J Mullaney
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Over the next five years, a new dimension in astronomy will reach maturity. the temporal dimension. Rather relying on static "photos" of the sky, astronomers will transition to "filming" sky night after night.
  Symmetries and energy in gravity: investigating whether charges from underlying symmetries are conserved
  Dr M Godazgar
Applications accepted all year round
The School of Mathematical Sciences of Queen Mary University of London invite applications for a PhD project commencing in January 2019.
  Numerical simulations of black-hole binaries
  Research Group: Gravitational Physics
  Prof M Hannam, Prof S Fairhurst
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Numerical solutions of the Einstein equations for the last orbits and merger of two black holes are essential to model the gravitational-wave signal from such systems, which are the prime source for gravitational-wave observations with Advanced LIGO and Virgo.
