  Astrophotonic technologies for exoplanet hunting
  Prof R Thomson
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photonic technologies facilitate the manipulation of light in ways that are simply not possible using traditional optical technologies e.g.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD): Optical Communication and Image Processing for Space Applications (OCIPSA) (STAR-Dundee)- University of Dundee
  Prof D Reid, Dr K Wilcox
Application Deadline: 30 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project not available to non UK/EU applicants. The EngD is an alternative to a traditional PhD aimed at students wanting a career in industry.
  Miniature femtosecond laser frequency combs for astrophotonics and quantum metrology
  Prof D Reid
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project concerns the development and application of Yb-based femtosecond lasers operating at pulse repetition rates in the few-GHz range, and their stabilisation as full “frequency combs” using novel nonlinear supercontinuum devices.
  Progenitor evolution of gravitational-wave emitting black-holes
  Dr R Hirschi
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The era of Gravitational-Wave Astronomy (GWA) opened in the last few years with the first detections from the LIGO and VIRGO observatories.
  Stellar Hydrodynamics
  Dr R Hirschi
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prof Hirschi and his group combine 3D hydrodynamics and 1D stellar evolution simulations to further our understanding of the evolution and fate of stars.
  The coronal cooling problem (Advert ref: FAC19/EE/MPEE/ANTOLIN)
  Dr P Antolin
Application Deadline: 1 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The complex interaction of the magnetic field with matter is the key to some of the most puzzling observed phenomena at multiple scales across the universe.
  The nature of solar plumes and their link to the solar wind (Advert Reference: SF18/MPEE/MCLAUGHLIN)
  Prof J McLaughlin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The solar wind is the stream of charged particles emanating from the Sun. Highly inhomogeneous in nature, its outflow extends over the Earth and the limit of its influence defines the outer boundaries of the solar system.
  High Pressure TPCs for Neutrino Interactions
  Dr A Kaboth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Center for Particle Physics at Royal Holloway is offering a PhD opportunity for building high pressure time projection chambers (HPTPCs) for studying neutrino interactions.
  Searching for Dark Matter with DarkSide-20K
  Prof J Monroe, Dr J Walding
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 in the DarkSide-20k experiment.
  Searching for dark matter with DEAP-3600
  Dr J Walding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Center for Particle Physics at Royal Holloway is offering a PhD opportunity for searching for dark matter in the DEAP-3600 experiment.
