  Simulating the Sun: Can We Predict Solar Storms ?
  Prof DH Mackay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnetic fields permeate and structure the atmosphere of the Sun. These magnetic fields can be seen to vary from the smallest to the largest scales presently observable.
  Exploring the Sun’s Plasma Environment with the Parker Solar Probe Spacecraft
  Dr C Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Sun’s atmosphere, the solar corona, remains one of the last major areas of the solar system to be directly explored by a spacecraft, but over the next few years this will change with the NASA Parker Solar Probe (PSP) mission.
  Magnetic flux emergence on the Sun.
  Dr V Archontis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A key open question in solar physics is how magnetic fields emerge from the solar interior to the surface of the Sun, to form sunspots and active regions.
  Helix Scaffold Fabrication Study using Electrohydrodynamic Printing应用电喷技术制造螺旋支架
  Prof J Sun
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Three-dimensional (3D) cell-culture models have recently garnered great attention because they are capable to promote the levels of cell differentiation.
  Modelling Creep-Fatigue Damage and Life Prediction for Gas Turbine Rotors
  Prof W Sun
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current market conditions are such that combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plants are now considering double two-shift operation, so potentially accruing upwards of 600 starts per year.

  Design for behaviour change in African urban informal settlements
  Dr F Ceschin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD is linked to a 5-year research project entitled ‘Mainstreaming Gender for Energy Security in Poor Urban Environments’, in short Gender for Energy Security (GENS).
  Design for energy transitions in African urban informal settlements
  Dr F Ceschin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD is linked to a 5-year research project entitled ‘Mainstreaming Gender for Energy Security in Poor Urban Environments’, in short Gender for Energy Security (GENS).
  The contradictory functions of carotenoid-based light-harvesters: Understanding energy harvesting and dissipation in the Fucoxanthin-Chlorophyll Protein (FCP)
  Dr C Duffy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary is one of the UK’s elite research centres, according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
  The role of UV exposure and novel compounds on the immunogenicity and genotoxicity of skin cancer
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr M Najafzadeh, Dr S Kauser
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The major aims of this project are to investigate the effect of UV in the development of different skin cancers compared to spontaneously regressing precancerous lesion, keratoacanthoma; and the effect of a novel compounds such as the structurally modified retinoic acid in the treatment of skin cancers and other cutaneous lesions.
  New models of Outer Radiation Belt Dynamics
  Dr C Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department hosts a vibrant Space and Atmospheric Electricity group whose research interests span the remit of Space Weather from the Sun through the heliosphere to Earth.
  Toward Artificial Photosynthesis: understanding how porphyrin’s structure and environment influence the early electronic and nuclear dynamics
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Sun represents an unlimited source of energy that can be harvested and ultimately converted to electricity. Solar energy is therefore the solution to not only depart from fossil fuels, but also to respond to the ever-increasing energy needs of our society.
  The climate of black hole growth
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Dr J Mullaney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It seems that all massive galaxies contain, at their centres, supermassive black holes with masses of at least a million times the mass of our Sun.
  Coronal Heating by MHD Waves
  Prof I De Moortel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The question why the Sun’s outer atmosphere (corona) is so much hotter than the solar surface (photosphere) remains one of the most challenging open problems in Solar Physics.
  Theory and Simulations of Space Weather in the Earth’s Magnetosphere
  Dr AN Wright
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The environment surrounding a planet dominated by its magnetic field (called the magnetosphere) shields the planet from the solar wind.
