We have 52 stars PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Investigating the origin of the lowest-mass white dwarf stars

We invite applications from outstanding and highly motivated students for the Warwick Prize Scholarships in Astrophysics. The successful applicant will work with Dr Ingrid Pelisoli within the Astronomy and Astrophysics group in the Department of Physics at the University of Warwick. Read more

Exploring close binary stars: Using nonlinear time series analysis and machine learning for analysing stellar light curves.

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

Discovering exoplanets around compositionally-diverse stars across the Milky Way by mitigating stellar signals

We invite applications from outstanding and highly motivated students for the Warwick Prize Scholarships in Astrophysics. The successful applicant will work with Dr Thomas Wilson within the Astronomy and Astrophysics group in the Department of Physics at the University of Warwick. Read more

A long-term variability study of young stars: Periodicity, hot spots, accretion and early evolution at the time of planet formation

Young stars are variable due to the processes happening on the star and its protoplanetary disk at the time of planet formation. The star-disk connection holds the clues to several open questions including rotational evolution, the origin of our Solar System and the feasibility of habitable planets. Read more

What causes galaxies to stop forming stars?

Supervisory team: Annagrazia Puglisi. Project description. Ellipticals are amongst the most massive galaxies in the present-day Universe, have spheroidal morphologies and red colours, and were formed more than 10 billion years ago. Read more

Unusual planetary systems with massive debris disks

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Debris disks are dusty disks of material around main sequence stars, revealed by their far-infrared excess emission. Collisions between asteroids or Kuiper Belt Objects generate small dust particles which absorb starlight from their host stars and reradiate this in the far-IR. Read more

Resolving the unresolvable: using lenses to map accretion onto black holes and neutron stars

Supervisory Team: Dr Matthew Middleton. Project description. White dwarfs located in the halo of Andromeda (M31) are expected to lens some of the 100s of X-ray bright, accreting compact objects (black holes and neutron stars) located in that galaxy. Read more

Made-to-Measure modelling of the Milky Way

The European Space Agency’s Gaia mission to map the position and motion of nearly 1.8 billion stars has revolutionized our view of the Milky Way. But, 1.8 billion stars is still only 1% of the stars in our Galaxy, and a large part of the Milky Way remains unseen. Read more
