  Hydrodynamics of Particle-Laden Flows: aerosols
  Dr S K Dadzie, Dr A Ozel, Professor R Ocone
Application Deadline: 30 April 2021

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air quality control relies on the simulation of aerosol dynamics. This research is to develop new theoretical model and simulation tools for these particle-laden flows.
  Fully funded PhD opportunity in Seismology which aims at characterizing the active tectonics along with the seismic and volcanic hazards in the Red Sea and western Saudi Arabia, with particular focus on the transform fault systems
  Dr L Parisi, Dr S Jonsson, Dr M Mai
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek a highly motivated PhD student to join our research teams in Computational Earthquake Seismology (CES) and Crustal Deformation and InSAR (CDI) at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST).
  Gravitational waves from pulsars
  Dr M Pitkin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gravitational wave are ripples in space-time emitted by some of the most extreme events in the Universe. colliding black holes and neutron stars.
  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.
  Dark Matter Direct Detection with DarkSide
  Prof J Monroe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Particle Physics at Royal Holloway is offering a PhD opportunity to search for dark matter with the DarkSide-20k experiment.
  ExoMolHD
  Prof S Yurchenko, Prof J Tennyson
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ExoMol team at UCL is the world leader in providing spectroscopic data for the characterisation and modelling of exoplanets and other hot atmospheres, see www.exomol.com.
  High-Tc Superconductor Research for Space Satellites
  Dr N Rattenbury, Dr J Cater
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Faculties of Science and Engineering are jointly developing a space systems programme at The University of Auckland. This cross-disciplinary effort has brought together engineers and scientists interested in growing New Zealand’s expertise in space mission design, satellite construction and space science.
  Optical Communications for Small Satellites
  Dr N Rattenbury, Dr J Cater
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Faculties of Science and Engineering are jointly developing a space systems programme at The University of Auckland.
  Supernova lightcurve population synthesis
  Dr J Eldridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Core-collapse supernovae are the explosive deaths of stars. With modern observing surveys we are discovering more of these events than ever before and finding they are incredibly diverse.
  High-resolution Imaging of Near-Earth Objects and Space Debris: Real-Time Atmospheric Tomographic Signal Processing
  Dr SJ Weddell, Dr R Clare
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our current research requires the development of a space situational awareness system for classifying Earth-orbiting artificial satellites.
  A Comparative Study of Metallic Ions in the Atmospheres of Earth and Mars
  Prof J Plane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metals are injected into planetary atmospheres by the ablation of interplanetary dust particles. The major species (Fe, Mg and Na) exist as atoms and ions that are excellent tracers of dynamics and chemistry.
  Numerical and analytical studies of early universe Einstein-Euler-scalar field models
  Dr F Beyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The point of this project is to study the Einstein’ equation (as a model of gravity) coupled to the Euler equations (as a model of cosmological matter) and the scalar field equations (as a model of the “inflaton” driving “inflation”) in the cosmological setting close to a big bang singularity.
  Numerical study of global properties of general relativistic space-times
  Prof J Frauendiner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is part of a larger research program which tries to study the global structure of space-times by numerically solving the conformal field equations, a system of partial differential equations which is equivalent to the vacuum Einstein equations.
  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.
  How are AGN triggered?
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Prof C Tadhunter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To accurately incorporate active galactic nuclei (AGN) into galaxy evolution models it is important to understand how and when AGN are triggered as their their host galaxies grow via gas accretion, and also whether the triggering mechanism depends on the luminosity of the AGN.
