The dynamics of small-N systems

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Most stars form in groups of dozens to a few hundred, but our understanding of the dynamics of such systems is surprisingly very lacking.  In particular… Read more

Surveying the sky for hungry black holes

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Over the next few 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. Read more

Searches for supersymmetry and dark matter particles with the ATLAS experiment

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
The student will work on the analysis of the data collected by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider to search for new particles that are postulated by Supersymmetry. Read more

Neutrino Oscillation Study and Nucleon Decay Search with DUNE

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
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. Read more

Exploring the environments of exploding stars

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Supernovae are the explosive deaths of certain types of stars; in particular, stars a lot more massive than our Sun. The route from massive star formation… Read more

Dark Matter Search with the LZ Experiment

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) is a project to build and operate a high-sensitivity dark matter experiment in the deep mine at SURF in South Dakota, USA. Read more

Cosmic-Ray Muons in Different Applications

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
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. Read more

Space Weather Forecast

The term 'Space Weather' refers to the conditions of environment in the vicinity of the Earth and to processes that may initiate far away (for example at the Sun) but can affect the geospace environment. Read more

Jupiter Plasma Environment

It is currently accepted that majority of visible matter in the Universe is in the state of plasma. However, with our present level of technology only the plasma within the solar system can be subjected to in-situ measurements by spacecraft. Read more

Dynamical Processes in the Geo-space Plasma

The terrestrial magnetosphere is formed as a result of the interaction between the magnetic field of the Earth and the solar wind (quasineutral flow of electrons and ions from the Sun). Read more

The Non-thermal Emission from Colliding Winds Binaries

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Colliding Winds Binaries are stellar systems containing two (usually massive) stars each with a powerful stellar wind. In systems with O stars or Wolf-Rayet stars, the winds collide at very high speeds (1000-3000 km/s). Read more

Fully-Funded OIST International PhD Program

The Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) accredited in 2011 as a graduate university located in a beautiful subtropical island of Okinawa, Japan. Read more

Interacting supernovae: studying stellar evolution, diversity and environment via their explosions

Supernovae are catastrophic stellar explosions shaping the visible Universe. They play an important role in the synthesis and distribution of almost all elements and especially heavy elements such as iron, enriching the Universe since the first supernova explosion when the cosmos was metal-free.
