  Properties of evolved, hot luminous stars from large spectroscopic surveys
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Dr P Crowther
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
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.
  Atmospheric properties of A, F and G stars
  Dr B Smalley
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Stellar physics is now entering a new, high-precision era with many ESO, ESA and other international projects. The data obtained with two successful satellites, CoRoT and Kepler, and from ground-based project such as SuperWASP, allow the analysis of pulsations of thousands of stars, in synergy with exoplanet research.
  The planetary graveyard - searching for the remnants of exoplanet systems around dead stars
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Dr M Burleigh, Dr S Casewell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
There is growing evidence that planetary systems are ubiquitous throughout the galaxy. Ground and spaced based surveys have found thousands of planets around stars.

  High-precision studies of eclipsing binary stars observed using space telescopes
  Dr JK Taylor
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The study of eclipsing binary star systems is one of the most mature and rewarding areas of stellar physics, offering the unique opportunity to determine the masses and radii of distant stars directly from observational data.
  Can a stars internal oscillations power their coronae (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/MPEE/MORTON)
  Dr R Morton
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Understanding how the atmospheres of cool, magnetised stars are powered is a long-standing astrophysical mystery.
  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.
  Searching for variability and companions to brown dwarfs in NGTS
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Dr S Casewell, Dr M Goad
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Brown dwarfs are failed stars - they form like stars, but are the size of Jupiter. These unusual objects never fuse hydrogen into helium, and so once formed, they simply cool and fade.
  Quantifying star formation
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Dr R Parker
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
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.
