High-speed astrophysics with ULTRACAM and HiPERCAM

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
ULTRACAM and HiPERCAM are high-speed optical cameras that can take hundreds/thousands of CCD images per second simultaneously in three/five colours, respectively. Read more

Pathways to thermonuclear supernovae

Thermonuclear supernovae are the result of the explosion of a white dwarf star in a binary system, the most well known of which are the cosmologically important Type Ia supernovae (SN Ia). Read more

Dissolution of star-forming regions

Abstract. Most star-forming regions are not long-lived, undergoing dissolution into the Galactic disc within 10Myr. The majority of the literature asserts that this is due to 'gas expulsion', where most of the gravitational potential is in the gas left over from star formation. Read more

JWST studies of Brown Dwarf Variability

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Brown dwarfs are objects in the mass gap between stars and planets. Lacking the contaminating light from a host star, observations of brown dwarfs can provide insight into what to expect from future observations of massive, Jupiter-like exoplanets. Read more

Greenness versus greyness: greenspaces in and around cities for hazard mitigation and resilience

The overarching aim of this proposal is to increase our resilience to geo- and climatic hazards by assessing the current state and identifying the future potential of greenspaces in and around cities in the Global South to better inform future urban expansion. Read more

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

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
