  Properties of evolved, hot luminous stars from large spectroscopic surveys
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Dr P Crowther
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Massive stars are rare, though dominate the radiative, mechanical and chemical feedback in star-forming galaxies. Historically, spectroscopic studies of hot massive stars in the Milky Way and nearby galaxies have been restricted to small sample sizes.
  Dense matter in the QCD phase diagram and in compact stars
  Research Group: Applied Mathematics
  Dr A Schmitt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project combines fundamental questions in nuclear and particle physics with astrophysical applications. Much of the phase diagram of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) at nonzero baryon density is unknown.
  Quantifying star formation
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Dr R Parker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stars form in relatively dense groups containing tens to millions of other stars, and these environments directly influence both young planets as they are forming, as well as the global evolution of galaxies.
  Discovering rare brown dwarf companions to white dwarfs
  Dr S Casewell, Prof G Wynn
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference. CSE Physics Casewell 2020. Brown dwarfs are often thought of as failed stars.
  High-speed astrophysics with HiPERCAM, ULTRACAM and ULTRASPEC
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Prof V Dhillon, Dr S Littlefair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

HiPERCAM, ULTRACAM and ULTRASPEC are high-speed cameras built by Sheffield/Warwick/UKATC for the study of astrophysics on fast timescales.
  The environments of star and planet formation
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Dr S Goodwin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Young stars are often found in high-density environments, this means that encounters between young stars can be common and this will change their binary properties and affect planet-forming discs.
  Thrive in the discovery of ideas and opportunities

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sunway University is a leading not-for-profit private university committed to the pursuit of educational excellence through scholarship, research and enterprise.
  The first supermassive black holes
  Dr J Aird, Prof J Osborne
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supermassive black holes, with masses up to billions of times the mass of the Sun, are found at the centres of most galaxies, including our own.
  The President’s PhD Scholarships

Funding Type

PhD Type

The President's PhD Scholarship scheme gives the most talented students from around the globe the opportunity to apply for one of 50 highly-competitive full scholarships in science, engineering, medicine or business.
  Big Data Modelling the Knowledge Economy
  Dr R Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life would be much easier if organisations had a 3D map of the business landscape showing owners and entrepreneurs where best to go, how much they could benefit when they get there, as well as how much it would cost them along the way.
