  Ultra-low frequency waves in the terrestrial magnetosphere
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Prof TK Yeoman, Dr D Wright
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves are a ubiquitous phenomenon in astrophysical plasmas. Within the Terrestrial space environment, such waves manifest themselves as Ultra low frequency (ULF) waves with periods ranging from tens to thousands of seconds.
  Jupiter’s infrared aurora
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Assoc Prof T Stallard, Prof E Bunce
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
With the arrival of NASA’s Juno mission at Jupiter, with magnetic measurements and ionospheric soundings by the spacecraft, our understanding of these aurora is changing dramatically.
  Planetary protection and the search for life in the outer solar system (ref: SF18/APP/Pearce)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round
The search for life in the outer solar system is centred on the search for water and the conditions which are known to support the ‘envelope of life’ on Earth.
  Future space missions and sensors for CBRN event detection and monitoring
  Prof L Berthoud
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Scholarship Details. This is a prestigious EPSRC iCASE studentship co-funded by Thales Alenia Space UK spacecraft manufacturers (Bristol Branch).
  Demonstration and optimisation of a Field Reversed Configuration (FRC) plasmoid for injection into a High-Energy Density Electromechanical Thruster based on Stabilised Liner Compression for a UK Fusion Rocket propulsion program
  Dr P Shaw
Applications accepted all year round
Introduction to the project. This project aims to investigate an aspect of a potential spacecraft propulsion system which could enable future manned exploration of the solar system.
  Radar Sounding of the Martian Atmosphere
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Prof M Lester, Prof S Milan
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
For the last 14 years or so the Mars Express (MEX) spacecraft has been orbiting Mars. For much of that time the Mars Sub Surface and Ionospheric Sounder (MARSIS) has been operational making measurements of the ionosphere at Mars (e.g.
  The transfer of solar wind energy into the upper atmosphere through magnetospheric waves
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Dr D Wright, Prof TK Yeoman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The interaction between the Sun’s and the Earth’s plasma environments is very dynamic and one of societal and commercial importance.
  Hyperthermal Atomic Oxygen Effects on Satellite Systems
  Research Group: Aerospace Engineering
  Dr P Roberts, Dr V Oiko, Dr S Edmondson
Applications accepted all year round
A funded PhD studentship is currently available, developing robust satellite technology to deal with the challenges of erosion and oxidation in Low Earth Orbits.
  Low-temperature plasmas for electric propulsion.
  Dr J Dedrick
Applications accepted all year round
Low-temperature plasmas are prevalent in modern technology and current applications include semiconductor processing, television displays and propulsions systems for spacecraft.
  A Mathematical Framework for Optimization and Control over Networks
  Prof M Peet
Application Deadline: 26 June 2019
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.
