  Circulation of the Giant Planets from Infrared Remote Sensing (ATM/2020/FLE)
  Dr L Fletcher, Dr J Nichols
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite four decades of planetary exploration, the physical and chemical processes responsible for the banded appearance of the giant planets remain mysterious.
  Water and dust in the Mars atmosphere from the Rosalind Franklin rover
  Prof A Coates
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UCL-led PanCam instrument. 1. on the ESA-Russia Rosalind Franklin rover is due to reach Mars in 2021 following its planned launch in 2020.
  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.
  SCENARIO - Using Aircraft Observations Improve Understanding of Mineral Dust Transport and Deposition Processes
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr C Ryder, Dr N Bellouin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every year thousands of tonnes of mineral dust particles are uplifted from arid regions by strong winds. While in the atmosphere, mineral dust is a hazard for health, transport and solar energy generation.
  Neutrino Oscillation Study and Proton Decay Search with DUNE
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr V Kudryavtsev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

DUNE is a large international project to design, construct and operate a multi-kiloton scale liquid argon detector for neutrino physics, neutrino astrophysics and a search for physics beyond the Standard Model.
  X-ray studies of planets in our solar system
  Prof G Branduadi-Raymont
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The XMM-Newton and Chandra observatories have revealed the beauty and multiplicity of X-ray emissions from planets and comets in our solar system.
  Breaking the stellar activity barrier to determining robust masses of small exoplanets, Astronomy – PhD (Funded)
  Dr R.D Haywood
Application Deadline: 27 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Recent observations from Kepler, Gaia, TESS and other exoplanet surveys show that planets orbiting other stars are ubiquitous, especially small ones (Neptune- to Earth-size).
  Modelling the atmospheres of terrestrial exoplanets – PhD (Funded by STFC)
  Dr H Lambert, Dr E Hébrard
Application Deadline: 27 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Exeter’s College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence in September 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter.
  White dwarfs, exoplanets and fundamental physics (AST/2020/BAR)
  Prof M Barstow, Dr S Casewell
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

White dwarfs are the end products of the life cycles of more than 90% of all stars. This makes them important laboratories for studying stellar evolution and the behaviour of matter at extremes of temperature and density.
  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.
