Electric Propulsion Systems for Small Spacecraft

The University of Auckland is conducting research into electric propulsion systems for small spacecraft. We are looking for a PhD candidate to research the miniaturisation of a high-Tc superconducting magnetoplasmadynamic drive and its subsystems. Read more

Submarine volcanism from satellite imagery

Academic supervisors. Susanna Ebmeier (University of Leeds), Isobel Yeo (National Oceanography Centre ), Ryan Lloyd (Geollect) and Tim Craig (University of Leeds). Read more

Energy dissipation in SMES magnet for space applications

We have a fully funded PhD scholarship available for experimental and numerical study of energy dissipation in SMES (superconducting magnetic energy storage) magnet for space applications. Read more

Spacecraft Trajectory Optimisation

The University of Auckland is developing a research programme in low delta-v spacecraft trajectory optimisation. We are looking for a PhD candidate to continue work in this area and develop our existing algorithms. Read more

Assessing High Latitude Atmosphere-Ionophere Coupling: Ionospheric impacts of SSWs at high latitudes

Sudden Stratospheric Warmings (SSWs) are severe climatic events in the upper atmosphere, where the accumulated effect of planetary wave breaking results in a weakening of the stratospheric polar vortex, sometimes resulting in a reversal of the stratospheric zonal wind. Read more

Properties of evolved hot luminous stars from large spectroscopic surveys

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Massive stars are rare, though dominate the radiative, mechanical and chemical feedback in star-forming galaxies. Historically spectroscopic studies of hot massive stars in the Milky Way and nearby galaxies have been restricted to small sample sizes. Read more

The Japanese Long-Baseline Neutrino Programme (T2K, SuperKamiokande and HyperKamiokande)

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
The particle physics and particle astrophysics (PPPA) group at the University of Sheffield has a long-standing involvement in Japan’s long-baseline neutrino programme. Read more

Dark Matter Direct Detection in QUEST-DMC

The Centre for Particle Physics at Royal Holloway is offering a PhD opportunity to search for dark matter in the QUEST-DMC experiment together with the London Low Temperature Laboratory, which is part of the European Microkelvin Platform. 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
