  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.
  Exploring the general principles governing the circulation of planetary atmospheres, focusing on terrestrial planets
  Prof G Vallis, Prof J Thuburn
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The University of Exeter’s College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence in September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
  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.
  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.
  How hot is the bottom of Earth’s mantle?
  Dr A Walker, Dr C Davies, Dr A Nowacki
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Can you combine geophysics, fluid dynamics and mineralogy to construct a deep-Earth thermometer and better constrain Earth’s energy budget?.
  Martian volcanic systems: using surface strain indicators to investigate magmatically driven stress in the Tharis region, Mars
  Dr E Bramham, Dr M Thomas, Dr S Piazolo, Dr D Paton
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This exciting project aims to decipher the geological history of Mars utilising the ample spacecraft data collected over the last decade.
  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.
  Iron Snow in Planetary Cores
  Dr C Davies, Dr A Walker
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Planetary magnetic fields exhibit remarkable variability in their intensity and spatio-temporal properties. These fields are generated in metallic cores and thus provide a unique probe into the dynamics and evolution of planetary interiors.
