  Doctor of Engineering (EngD): Optical Communication and Image Processing for Space Applications (OCIPSA) (STAR-Dundee)
  Prof D Reid
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Project not available to non UK/EU applicants. The EngD is an alternative to a traditional PhD aimed at students wanting a career in industry.
  Dynamics of Inelastic and Reactive Molecular Collisions
  Prof M L Costen
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
Detailed understanding of molecular collisions, and the resulting energy transfer and/or reaction is vital to improved modelling of a wide range of important chemical environments, including planetary atmospheres, combustion and plasma systems and astrochemistry.
  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.
  Characterising circumbinary planet host star systems with CHEOPS and Xamidimura
  Dr P Maxted
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The Keele astrophysics group are part of an international project to search for planets orbiting binary star systems using radial velocity measurements.
  Discovering transiting extra-solar planets with WASP and TESS
  Dr C Hellier
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The Keele-led WASP-South transit survey is currently the most successful ground-based search for transiting exoplanets.
  Galaxy populations behind the Magellanic Clouds
  Dr J T Van Loon
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The VISTA Magellanic Clouds survey (VMC) is near its completion of the – by far - deepest and most detailed near-infrared mapping of the nearby Magellanic Clouds galaxies, the region in between them, and several flanking fields.
  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.
  Progenitor evolution of gravitational-wave emitting black-holes
  Dr R Hirschi
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The era of Gravitational-Wave Astronomy (GWA) opened in the last few years with the first detections from the LIGO and VIRGO observatories.
  Star formation in the Magellanic Clouds (Dr Joana Oliveira)
  Dr J Oliveira
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The Large and Small Magellanic Clouds are the nearest templates for the detailed study of star formation under metal-poor conditions.
  Stellar Hydrodynamics
  Dr R Hirschi
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Prof Hirschi and his group combine 3D hydrodynamics and 1D stellar evolution simulations to further our understanding of the evolution and fate of stars.
