  Exploring the Sun’s Plasma Environment with the Parker Solar Probe Spacecraft
  Dr C Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Sun’s atmosphere, the solar corona, remains one of the last major areas of the solar system to be directly explored by a spacecraft, but over the next few years this will change with the NASA Parker Solar Probe (PSP) mission.
  Coherent and incoherent attosecond x-ray sources based on laser-plasma interactions
  Prof D Jaroszynski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhDs are offered in an exciting and challenging research area, with a vibrant group of experimentalists and theoreticians developing and applying ultra-compact accelerators and x-ray sources based on laser-plasma interactions.
  Plasma-Enhanced Pulsed Laser Deposition of metal-oxynitride thin films for photoelectrochemical water splitting to enable a hydrogen economy.
  Research Group: York Plasma Institute
  Dr E Wagenaars
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The hydrogen economy, the use of hydrogen as a clean fuel, is under development as a part of the future low-carbon economy. An important part of this is the efficient and cheap production of hydrogen.
  Simulation and optimisation of a spacecraft propulsion system based on a Field Reversed Configuration plasmoid using deep learning and machine learning algorithms
  Dr P Shaw
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to investigate an enabling technology for a more significant and complex system based on a High-Energy Density Electromechanical Thruster based on Stabilized Liner Compression of Plasma that could lead to manned exploration of the Solar system [1].
  PhD in Fundamental Physics: Advanced Charged Particle Dynamics in Electromagnetic Fields
  Dr S Maher
Applications accepted all year round
