  Properties of evolved, hot luminous stars from large spectroscopic surveys
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Dr P Crowther
Applications accepted all year round
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
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.
  Exploring the extreme magnetospheres and interiors of young neutron stars (FERDMANRU19SF)
  Dr R Ferdman
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
The investigation of recently formed neutron stars through observations of pulsars can shed important light on their exotic interiors and the evolution of their powerful magnetic fields.
  Quantifying star formation
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Dr R Parker
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  High-speed astrophysics with HiPERCAM, ULTRACAM and ULTRASPEC
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Prof V Dhillon, Dr S Littlefair
Applications accepted all year round
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
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.
  The two-body problem in numerical and perturbative general relativity
  Research Group: Geometry and Analysis
  Dr C Markakis
Applications accepted all year round
The School of Mathematical Sciences of Queen Mary University of London invite applications for a PhD project commencing either in September 2019 for students seeking funding, or at any point in the academic year for self-funded students.
  Asteroseismic data analysis with Kepler, K2, TESS and PLATO
  Prof B Chaplin
Applications accepted all year round
We are offering PhD positions in the Solar and Stellar Physics Group in the analysis of asteroseismic data on the Sun (helioseismology) and Sun-like stars and red giants (asteroseismology).
  Direct Statistical Simulation of Mulitscale Fluids
  Prof S Tobias
Applications accepted all year round
This project is to implement the new technique of Direct Statistical Simulation for a range of Astrophysical and Geophysical Flows.
  The MHD Thin Shell Equations - studying basic properties of waves, instabilities and turbulence
  Prof S Tobias
Applications accepted all year round
In many astrophysical and geophysical situations of interest, turbulent interactions take place within a thin layer of stably stratified fluid in the presence of a magnetic field.
