  Structure in patterns in ordered datasets with applications in astrophysics, neuroscience and archaeology (ESR 7)
  Prof A Efstathiou, Prof V Papadopoulou Lesta
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will delve into classic and powerful techniques related to complex systems, such as graph theory, probability theory and statistics, as well as modern and promising ones such as Network Science, machine learning and data mining techniques and tools.
  Stellar Hydrodynamics
  Dr R Hirschi
Application Deadline: 15 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prof Hirschi and his group combine 3D hydrodynamics and 1D stellar evolution simulations to further our understanding of the evolution and fate of stars.
  Unveiling the diversity and architecture of extrasolar planets: combining different detection methods to better understand the characteristics of new planets
  Dr V van Eylen
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The possibility of planets orbiting other stars has been a topic of fascination for centuries. We are the first generation that has brought these planets – now known as exoplanets – from the realm of science-fiction into that of science.

  Interactions between Mercury’s surface and its dynamic space environment
  Prof T Yeoman
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mercury is a unique body in the solar system in that its interaction with the interplanetary medium is via a magnetised body without any atmosphere or conducting ionosphere (the moon Ganymede, within the magnetosphere of Jupiter, is the closest analogue).
  Ultra-low frequency waves in the terrestrial magnetosphere (GEO/2020/YEO2)
  Prof T Yeoman, Dr D Wright
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves are a ubiquitous phenomenon in astrophysical plasmas. Within the Terrestrial space environment, such waves manifest themselves as Ultra low frequency (ULF) waves with periods ranging from tens to thousands of seconds.
  Cosmic-Ray Muons in Different Applications
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr V Kudryavtsev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cosmic-ray muons are known to be useful in applications beyond particle astrophysics. They have helped with mapping structure of volcanoes and with finding voids in various geological structures.
  Dark Matter Search with the LZ Experiment
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr V Kudryavtsev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) is a project to build and operate a high-sensitivity dark matter experiment in the deep mine at SURF (South Dakota, USA) able to probe most of the WIMP parameter space region free from neutrino background.
  High-speed astrophysics with HiPERCAM, ULTRACAM and ULTRASPEC
  Prof V Dhillon, Dr S Littlefair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

HiPERCAM, ULTRACAM and ULTRASPEC are high-speed cameras built by Sheffield/Warwick/UKATC for the study of astrophysics on fast timescales.
