  The variability of the Earth’s electron radiation belt
  Prof R Horne, Dr G Del-Zanna, Dr S Glauert
Application Deadline: 15 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Earth’s electron radiation belts consist of high energy (relativistic) electrons which are trapped by the Earth’s external magnetic field and which circulate around the Earth.
  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.

  Full-time PhD Studentships available at The Open University (STEM Faculty)

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Physical Sciences (SPS) invites applications for full-time PhD studentships in the Physics research discipline. Details of the PhD projects we are offering this year can be found at.
  Dark Matter Direct Detection with DarkSide
  Prof J Monroe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Particle Physics at Royal Holloway is offering a PhD opportunity to search for dark matter with the DarkSide-20k experiment.
  High-Tc Superconductor Research for Space Satellites
  Dr N Rattenbury, Dr J Cater
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Faculties of Science and Engineering are jointly developing a space systems programme at The University of Auckland. This cross-disciplinary effort has brought together engineers and scientists interested in growing New Zealand’s expertise in space mission design, satellite construction and space science.
  Optical Communications for Small Satellites
  Dr N Rattenbury, Dr J Cater
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Faculties of Science and Engineering are jointly developing a space systems programme at The University of Auckland.
  Supernova lightcurve population synthesis
  Dr J Eldridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Core-collapse supernovae are the explosive deaths of stars. With modern observing surveys we are discovering more of these events than ever before and finding they are incredibly diverse.
  PhD Engineering - In-orbit fabrication of large space structures using novel manufacturing technologies
  Prof C McInnes
Application Deadline: 7 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The James Watt School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow is seeking a highly motivated graduate to undertake a 3.5-year PhD project entitled.
  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.
  Fully funded positions in Engineering and Physical Sciences

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are now open for up to 12 PhD studentships at the University of Nottingham, tackling engineering and physical sciences challenges.
  Numerical and analytical studies of early universe Einstein-Euler-scalar field models
  Dr F Beyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The point of this project is to study the Einstein’ equation (as a model of gravity) coupled to the Euler equations (as a model of cosmological matter) and the scalar field equations (as a model of the “inflaton” driving “inflation”) in the cosmological setting close to a big bang singularity.
  Numerical study of global properties of general relativistic space-times
  Prof J Frauendiner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is part of a larger research program which tries to study the global structure of space-times by numerically solving the conformal field equations, a system of partial differential equations which is equivalent to the vacuum Einstein equations.
