  Quantifying star formation
  Dr R Parker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stars form in relatively dense groups containing tens to millions of other stars, and these environments directly influence both young planets as they are forming, as well as the global evolution of galaxies.
  Quantifying the impact of AGN on their host galaxies; Supervisor: Prof. Clive Tadhunter
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Prof C Tadhunter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is increasing speculation that active galactic nuclei (AGN) have a major impact on the evolution of their host galaxies by driving powerful jets and outflows that eject the cool gas, thereby affecting the star formation histories of the galaxy bulges.
  Surveying the sky for hungry black holes
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Dr J Mullaney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the next five years, a new dimension in astronomy will reach maturity. the temporal dimension. Rather relying on static "photos" of the sky, astronomers will transition to "filming" sky night after night.
  The climate of black hole growth
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Dr J Mullaney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It seems that all massive galaxies contain, at their centres, supermassive black holes with masses of at least a million times the mass of our Sun.
  The environments of star and planet formation
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Dr S Goodwin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Young stars are often found in high-density environments, this means that encounters between young stars can be common and this will change their binary properties and affect planet-forming discs.
  Theory and Simulations of Space Weather in the Earth’s Magnetosphere
  Dr AN Wright
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The environment surrounding a planet dominated by its magnetic field (called the magnetosphere) shields the planet from the solar wind.
