  Extra-Solar Gas Giant Planets, theories meet observations
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Prof S Nayakshin, Dr M Burleigh
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The census of close separation exoplanets now exceeds thousands of planets around stars of different masses, metallicities, and binarity.
  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.
  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.
  Magnetospheres of exoplanets
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Dr J Nichols, Prof G Wynn
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Many thousands of exoplanets have been discovered to date. However, there is a limit on the information which can be obtained from conventional observation methods.
  (STFC DTP) Investigating the water and volatile inventory of unequilibrated ordinary chrondrites
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr R Tartese, Dr R Jones
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
Introduction. One of the vital ingredients that allowed the emergence of life on the Earth is liquid water. Therefore,understanding the origin(s) of Solar System water, together with other volatile species, is of primaryimportance for the study of life in the universe.
  Designing Catalysts Inspired by Enzymes with Real World Applications
  Dr L Connal
Applications accepted all year round
Enzymes are nature’s catalysts, they perform highly specific chemical and physical functions from the generation of movement to the synthesis of DNA.
  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.
  High-precision studies of eclipsing binary stars observed using space telescopes
  Dr JK Taylor
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The study of eclipsing binary star systems is one of the most mature and rewarding areas of stellar physics, offering the unique opportunity to determine the masses and radii of distant stars directly from observational data.
  The dynamics of jets in rapidly rotating fluids by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation
  Dr P Livermore, Prof R Hollerbach
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The movement of electrically conducting liquid inside the core of Earth and other planets is responsible for generating their planetary magnetic fields, yet we know very little about their dynamics, as creating realistic simulations is extremely challenging.
