  Statistical Physics of Fluid Turbulence
  Prof G Eyink
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Eyink group in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the Johns Hopkins University is looking to support a full-time PhD student in theoretical physics starting September 2020.
  Astrophotonic technologies for exoplanet hunting
  Prof R Thomson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photonic technologies facilitate the manipulation of light in ways that are simply not possible using traditional optical technologies e.g.
  PhD Studentships and Taught Masters in Physics and Astronomy

PhD Type

The University of Glasgow is a world leading institution and was the first UK university to be rated as 5 Stars Plus overall (QS World University Rankings 2015).
  Gravitaitonal wave research with LIGO
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof E Daw
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gravitational wave research group at Sheffield partakes in a variety of research as a member group of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration.
  The WATCHMAN Project: Using Anti-Neutrinos for Nuclear Threat Reduction
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr M Malek
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The WATer CHerenkov Monitor for Anti-Neutrinos (WATCHMAN) is a US/UK collaboration that aims to use nature’s most ’ghostly’ particle (the neutrino) for the extremely practical purpose of nuclear threat reduction.
  Theoretical and numerical studies of relativistic laser-plasma interaction and applications
  Prof Z Sheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

You might be a potential candidate if you are interested in using high performance computing to discover novel physics or solve key problems in high intensity laser-matter interactions and their applications, particularly in advanced particle accelerators and radiation sources (from THz to X-rays).
  Development of Superconducting Detectors and Filtering Structures for the Next Generation of Sub-mm Astronomical Instruments
  Research Group: Astronomy Instrumentation
  Dr S Doyle, Dr P Hargrave
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Cardiff Astronomy Instrumentation Group (AIG) is one of the world leaders in Kinetic Inductance Detector (KID) development. These superconducting detectors are the most promising technology for the next generation of millimeter – THz wave detectors.
  Gas and Dust to Stars – Understanding Star-formation in our Closest Neighbouring Galaxies
  Research Group: Astronomy
  Dr MW Smith, Prof S Eales
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The key process to understand how galaxies evolve is the process of star-formation, where clouds of gas (which also contain cosmic-dust) collapse to form stars.
  Investigating the formation and evolution of the most massive galaxies and galaxy clusters in the Universe
  Research Group: Astronomy
  Dr M Negrello, Dr E Calabrese
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Elliptical galaxies are the most massive galaxies we observe in the Universe today and they are believed to have formed via a giant dust-obscured burst of star formation when the Universe was less than 2 billion years old.
  Searching for the First Galaxies
  Research Group: Astronomy
  Prof S Eales, Dr M Negrello
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Observations with submillimetre telescopes have discovered objects in the early universe that are probably the ancestors of present-day galaxies.
