Space Situational Awareness

Space debris is defined as all human-made objects including fragments that are non functional. Today, the global dimension of the problem is internationally recognised, and active control of the space debris environment has been deemed necessary to sustain safe space activities in the future.

Using Extreme Value Statistics to Quantify Space Weather Risk

The University of Birmingham is developing a programme of world leading research in the field of Space Environment. As part of the plan to develop the group, an opportunity has arisen for a fully funded PhD studentship. Read more

Energy dissipation in SMES magnet for space applications

We have a fully funded PhD scholarship available for experimental and numerical study of energy dissipation in SMES (superconducting magnetic energy storage) magnet for space applications. Read more

Sub-Terahertz Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR) for space awareness

Applications are invited from an academically gifted and motivated UK candidate with first (at least upper second) degree in Physics or relevant disciplines, such as Communication and Electrical Engineering Sciences with a keen interest in physics-oriented high impact research to undertake a study on the subject of sub-THz Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar imaging for space situational awareness. Read more

Mission Analysis

Mission analysis concerns the definition, development and preparation phases of a space project, analysing the best satellite orbits to achieve specific objectives within the space mission. Read more

Space Weather Forecast

The term 'Space Weather' refers to the conditions of environment in the vicinity of the Earth and to processes that may initiate far away (for example at the Sun) but can affect the geospace environment. Read more

Smart Polymer nAnoCompositEs (SPACE)

  Research Group: Multiscale Modelling
Polymer nanocomposites (PNCs) are hybrid materials consisting of a polymeric matrix incorporating nanoparticles (NPs). They are paving the path for next-generation smart nanomaterials in energy efficiency and storage, environmental remediation, textile, food and biomedical applications. Read more

Dynamical Processes in the Geo-space Plasma

The terrestrial magnetosphere is formed as a result of the interaction between the magnetic field of the Earth and the solar wind (quasineutral flow of electrons and ions from the Sun). Read more

Development of a novel calcium-based hydraulic sealer

Root canal therapy is necessary when the dental pulp is damaged irreversibly and has to be removed. The loss of the dental pulp creates a dead space inside the tooth which is colonized by bacteria. Read more

Assessing High Latitude Atmosphere-Ionophere Coupling: Ionospheric impacts of SSWs at high latitudes

Sudden Stratospheric Warmings (SSWs) are severe climatic events in the upper atmosphere, where the accumulated effect of planetary wave breaking results in a weakening of the stratospheric polar vortex, sometimes resulting in a reversal of the stratospheric zonal wind. Read more

Charting an atlas of bioactive chemical space in M. tuberculosis

Talented and motivated students passionate about doing research are invited to apply for this PhD position. The successful applicant will join the Crick PhD Programme in September 2022 and will register for their PhD at one of the Crick partner universities (King’s College London). Read more
