  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.
  Can a star’s internal oscillations power their coronae (Advert reference: RDF20/EE/MPEE/MORTON)
  Dr R Morton
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding how the atmospheres of cool, magnetised stars are powered is a long-standing astrophysical mystery.
  PhD studentships available at the School of Physics and Astronomy at Queen Mary University of London

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Physics and Astronomy has a reputation for excellence in both research and teaching. Each of the four research groups has dedicated resources, attracting funding from a variety of sources, including 2 Future Leaders Fellowships and a 4 million Euro doctoral Training Network from the EU.
  Weathering of Clays under Extreme Conditions: Implications for the Biosphere and Extraterrestrial Environments
  Dr V Erastova
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Combining molecular modeling and experiments to build an understanding of weathering of minerals on ancient Earth and extraterrestrial environments, and its effect on the evolution of carbon-cycles and habitability of planets.
  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.
  Magnetospheric dynamics at Jupiter
  Dr J Nichols, Dr T Stallard
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Jupiter possesses the strongest magnetic field and brightest auroras in the solar system. The dynamics of Jupiter’s magnetosphere are dominated by the planet’s rotation, rather than the interaction with the solar wind as at Earth.
  The Transient science revolution (AST/2020/OBR)
  Prof P O'Brein, Prof J Osborne
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The era of multi-messenger astronomy is here thanks to a revolution in the discovery and characterisation of explosive transients.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Physical and wind properties of hot, luminous stars with ULLYSES
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Dr P Crowther
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Massive stars are rare, though dominate the radiative, mechanical and chemical feedback in star-forming galaxies.
