Astronomy PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Non-European Students

We have 87 Astronomy PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Non-European Students

Bayesian Deep Learning for cosmology with Euclid

This project will focus on the combination of cutting-edge Deep Learning and statistical methods to enable cosmological inference from next-generation facilities such as the European Space Agency’s Euclid mission. Read more

Autonomous multi robot system for fast and long traversal PhD

This is an exciting opportunity for a fully funded PhD studentship in the Centre for Autonomous and Cyber-Physical Systems at Cranfield University, to develop an autonomous multi-robot system for fast and long traversal in extreme planetary environments. Read more

Machine learning for studying supernovae

Supernovae are the explosive deaths of certain types of star at the ends of their lives. They play an important role in the Universe, being the key distributors of heavy elements. Read more

Enabling Challenging Space Exploration: exploring 244Cm-based radioisotope power systems

·       Radioisotope power systems (RPS) are key for allowing us to explore some of the most challenging locations of our solar system that are not possible or are very challenging using solar array based electrical power supplies. Read more

Probing the high redshift universe with gamma-ray bursts

Long-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), are exceptionally bright explosions detectable at great distances. Some GRBs occurred during the first billion years in the life of the universe, and so can be used to probe the early stars and galaxies in which they arose, and their effects on the intergalactic medium around them. Read more

Astrophysical transient searches with LOFAR

·       The low frequency radio regime is a relatively unexplored parameter space rich in information concerning extreme astrophysical phenomena, particularly those in which magnetic fields play a key role like magnetars (highly magnetic neutron stars) and relativistic jets launched by black holes and compact object mergers. Read more

Characterization of the Space Weather and radiation environment at Mars and the impacts on exploration

The Sun continuously emits magnetic fields, particles and radiation that can interact with a planet’s upper atmosphere and surrounding magnetic environment to produce a myriad of effects, such as radio communications issues, which are typically referred as Space Weather. Read more

The outer bound of planet formation

One of the most fundamental problems in Astronomy is how planets form. The classic paradigm for planet formation was built solely on the basis of the Solar System data of the last century. Read more

The disturbances of the outer Milky Way

The Milky Way is the galaxy that we can study in by far the most detail. It is the best place to look if we want to understand in detail the processes that build and shape all galaxies. Read more

X-ray Interferometry: Preparing for a revolution in astronomy

In the early 2000s the idea of an X-ray interferometer being able to transform astrophysics was born (Cash et al. 2000). Technology improvements over the intervening years now promise ways to make it happen. Read more

Exploring Giant Planet Atmospheres with JWST

Overview. In its first year of operations, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has delivered astonishing new discoveries via infrared observations of the near and far universe. Read more
