  The planetary graveyard - searching for the remnants of exoplanet systems around dead stars
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Dr M Burleigh, Dr S Casewell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
There is growing evidence that planetary systems are ubiquitous throughout the galaxy. Ground and spaced based surveys have found thousands of planets around stars.
  Discovering transiting extra-solar planets with WASP and TESS
  Dr C Hellier
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The Keele-led WASP-South transit survey is currently the most successful ground-based search for transiting exoplanets.
  Probing the molecular composition of planet-forming regions with ALMA
  Dr C Walsh
Applications accepted all year round
ALMA, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array, is a state-of-the-art telescope in Chile. It has the resolution and sensitivity to observe emission from dust and gas on size scales similar to that of the Solar System in nearby young exoplanet-forming systems.
  Atmospheric properties of A, F and G stars
  Dr B Smalley
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Stellar physics is now entering a new, high-precision era with many ESO, ESA and other international projects. The data obtained with two successful satellites, CoRoT and Kepler, and from ground-based project such as SuperWASP, allow the analysis of pulsations of thousands of stars, in synergy with exoplanet research.
  Characterising circumbinary planet host star systems with CHEOPS and Xamidimura
  Dr P Maxted
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The Keele astrophysics group are part of an international project to search for planets orbiting binary star systems using radial velocity measurements.
  Asteroseismic data analysis with Kepler, K2, TESS and PLATO
  Prof B Chaplin
Applications accepted all year round
We are offering PhD positions in the Solar and Stellar Physics Group in the analysis of asteroseismic data on the Sun (helioseismology) and Sun-like stars and red giants (asteroseismology).
  Simulating the atmospheres of rocky exoplanets
  Prof D Marsh, Dr C Walsh
Applications accepted all year round
The current generation of exoplanet discovery missions has revealed the diversity of exoplanetary systems that include rocky worlds within the habitable zone of the host star.
  Searching for variability and companions to brown dwarfs in NGTS
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Dr S Casewell, Dr M Goad
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Brown dwarfs are failed stars - they form like stars, but are the size of Jupiter. These unusual objects never fuse hydrogen into helium, and so once formed, they simply cool and fade.
