  Astrophysical interpretation of gravitational waves from black-holes and neutron-stars
  Research Group: Gravitational Physics
  Dr V Raymond, Prof M Hannam
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Bayesian parameter estimation and model selection methods have been essential to measure the properties of the binary-black-holes and of the binary-neutron-star detected with the gravitational-wave observations from the LIGO-Virgo network.
  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.
  Improving the sensitivity of gravitational-wave detectors
  Research Group: Gravitational Physics
  Prof H Grote, Dr K Dooley
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Since the start of their first observing runs starting in fall 2015, Advanced LIGO and Virgo have made direct detections of gravitational waves created by the collisions of black holes and of neutron stars, thus bringing to life a new instrument for astronomy.
  Gravitational lenses with ALMA
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Prof A Blain, Prof N Tanvir
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The mass of intervening galaxies and clusters deflects the light coming from more distant galaxies, which can lead to dramatic magnification effects.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  The two-body problem in numerical and perturbative general relativity
  Dr C Markakis
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.
  Multi-messenger Probes of Neutron Star Physics
  Dr D Tsang, Dr H Van Eerten
Application Deadline: 16 December 2018
The University of Bath invites applications from outstanding candidates for a 3.5-year funded studentship to be held in the Bath Astrophysics Group to study multi-messenger probes of neutron star physics.
  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.
