  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.
  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).
  Galaxy populations behind the Magellanic Clouds
  Dr J T Van Loon
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The VISTA Magellanic Clouds survey (VMC) is near its completion of the – by far - deepest and most detailed near-infrared mapping of the nearby Magellanic Clouds galaxies, the region in between them, and several flanking fields.
  Forensic Evidence and Case Attrition in the England and Wales Criminal Justice System (Advert Reference: RDF19/BL/LAW/MCCARTNEY)
  Dr C McCartney
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
This research will focus upon the perennial issue of the discontinuation of criminal cases, looking specifically at those cases that include forensic evidence, which have been passed to prosecuting authorities for decisions to charge and progress.
  Multi-messenger astrophysics: exploring the electromagnetic characteristics of short-duration GRBs and kilonovae
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Prof N Tanvir, Dr R Starling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Binaries consisting of two neutron stars or a neutron star and a black hole, will eventually merge due to orbital decay through the emission of gravitational radiation.
  Progenitor evolution of gravitational-wave emitting black-holes
  Dr R Hirschi
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The era of Gravitational-Wave Astronomy (GWA) opened in the last few years with the first detections from the LIGO and VIRGO observatories.
