  Simulating Thermal Images for Spacecraft Navigation, Guidance and Rendezvous
  Dr I Martin, Dr K Edwards
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Thermal cameras responsive to frequencies in the infra-red range are being considered for future spacecraft landers and orbital rendezvous missions because they can provide information for autonomous navigation systems that may not be available in the visible light range.
  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.
  Spacecraft launch environment and vibration testing
  Prof G Aglietti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main aim of this project is to investigate and improve some aspects of the environmental vibration testing that is carried out during the development and qualification of spacecraft.
  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].
  KESS2 MRes Studentship: Design and development of a cryogenic pressure vessel for spacecraft application
  Dr R Navaratne
Application Deadline: 26 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a funded MbyRes, including a generous stipend and tuition fees, with well-resourced circumstances for a successful scholarship.
  Spacecraft deployable structures
  Prof G Aglietti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deployable structures are typically used in space application, to enable the launch of equipment whose size in operation in orbit, exceeds the volume available in the launch vehicle.
  Non-thermal Plasma Rapid Dry Decontamination on Sensitive Space Instrument
  Research Group: Astronautics
  Dr M K Kim
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisory team. Min Kwan Kim and C. William Keevil. Project description.
  Advanced Study in Machine Learning and Automatic Control. Methods and Application to Immunotherapy.
  Prof M Peet
Application Deadline: 1 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD position is available in the Cybernetic Systems and Controls Lab (CSCL) in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Arizona State University.
  Geometric Control of Autonomous Vehicle
  Prof W Holderbaum
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will focus primarily on an Autonomous Underwater Vehicles. The general research theme involves theoretical and experimental study of Underwater Vehicles with emphasis on advanced motion control for unmanned marine vehicles.
  Mechanics of soft solids undergoing large deformation
  Dr P Saxena
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Solid materials that can undergo large deformations are ubiquitous in nature and are widely used to manufacture engineering components.
  A Comparative Study of Metallic Ions in the Atmospheres of Earth and Mars
  Prof J Plane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metals are injected into planetary atmospheres by the ablation of interplanetary dust particles. The major species (Fe, Mg and Na) exist as atoms and ions that are excellent tracers of dynamics and chemistry.
  Theory and Simulations of Space Weather in the Earth’s Magnetosphere
  Dr AN Wright
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The environment surrounding a planet dominated by its magnetic field (called the magnetosphere) shields the planet from the solar wind.
  Mixed-criticality wireless communications over dynamic networks
  Dr L Indrusiak
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research areas. Autonomous and self-adaptive systems; Cyber Physical Systems; Embedded systems; Real time languages and systems; Safety of autonomous and self-adaptive systems; Simulating complex systems; Wireless Sensor Networks and Internet of Things.
