  The transfer of solar wind energy into the upper atmosphere through magnetospheric waves
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Dr D Wright, Prof TK Yeoman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The interaction between the Sun’s and the Earth’s plasma environments is very dynamic and one of societal and commercial importance.
  Ultra-low frequency waves in the terrestrial magnetosphere
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Prof TK Yeoman, Dr D Wright
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves are a ubiquitous phenomenon in astrophysical plasmas. Within the Terrestrial space environment, such waves manifest themselves as Ultra low frequency (ULF) waves with periods ranging from tens to thousands of seconds.
  Mercury’s Space Environment: building on recent explorations of the space environment of Mercury using MESSENGER data
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Prof TK Yeoman, Dr S Imber
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The University of Leicester has a research team focusing on understanding the space environment of Mercury, in preparation for the recently-launched ESA-JAXA BepiColombo mission to Mercury, for which the University of Leicester have built the MIXS (Mercury imaging X-ray spectrometer) instrument and have a PI instrument role.
  Magnetospheres of exoplanets
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Dr J Nichols, Prof G Wynn
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Many thousands of exoplanets have been discovered to date. However, there is a limit on the information which can be obtained from conventional observation methods.
  Radar Sounding of the Martian Atmosphere
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Prof M Lester, Prof S Milan
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
For the last 14 years or so the Mars Express (MEX) spacecraft has been orbiting Mars. For much of that time the Mars Sub Surface and Ionospheric Sounder (MARSIS) has been operational making measurements of the ionosphere at Mars (e.g.
  Electrodynamics of the solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere-atmosphere coupled system
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Prof S Milan, Dr S Imber
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The interaction of the solar wind with the Earth’s magnetic field leads to dynamic phenomena in near-Earth space, including the energization and circulation of plasma within the magnetosphere and ionosphere – the most visible manifestation of which is the polar auroras – which lead to a hostile environment for space- and ground-based technologies.
  Activating Carbon Dioxide Utilising Atmospheric Pressure Gas Plasma
  Dr B Buckley, Dr F Iza
Application Deadline: 28 May 2019
This project will be part of the Doctoral Training Centre on Plasma interactions with Liquids. The Buckley group has embarked on a programme of research directed at carbon dioxide utilisation (CDU) and has reported initial efforts in the area.
  Advanced manufacturing processes to enable the heterogeneous integration of power electronics - Ref: CL1UF2018
  Prof C Liu
Applications accepted all year round
Heterogeneous integration of power devices refers to the assembly of separately manufactured power semiconductors, passive components and control elements into a single package, i.e.
