  The UKRI CDT in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Advanced Computing
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Training in AI, high-performance computing (HPC) and high-performance data analytics (HPDA) plays an essential role, as does engagement with external partners, which include large international companies, locally based start-ups and SMEs, and government and Research Council partners.

  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.
  Chemically Peculiar A and F stars
  Dr B Smalley
Application Deadline: 15 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stellar physics is in a high-precision era with many ESO, ESA and other international projects. The data obtained from space with Kepler and TESS, and from ground-based project such as SuperWASP, allow the analysis of pulsations of thousands of stars.
  Discovering exoplanets around TESS hot-star candidates
  Dr C Hellier
Application Deadline: 15 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Keele has a long track record of discovering extra-solar planets, based on leading the WASP-South transit survey, and in particular has specialised in planets transiting hot and fast-rotating stars that require Doppler-tomography techniques.
  Galaxies behind the Magellanic Clouds
  Dr J T Van Loon
Application Deadline: 15 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Magellanic Clouds are nearby galaxies that span hundreds of square degrees on the sky and that benefit from a tremendous amount of exquisite multi-wavelength data.
  High-precision studies of eclipsing binary stars observed using space telescopes
  Dr JK Taylor
Application Deadline: 15 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The study of eclipsing binary star systems is one of the most mature and rewarding areas of stellar physics, offering the unique opportunity to determine the masses and radii of distant stars directly from observational data.
  In Search of Runaway Stars
  Dr N J Wright
Application Deadline: 15 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most stars in our galaxy move in more or less orderly orbits, but in recent decades astronomers have identified some stars that are moving considerably faster than expected; these are runaway stars.
  Star formation in the Magellanic Clouds
  Dr J Oliveira
Application Deadline: 15 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Large and Small Magellanic Clouds are the nearest templates for the detailed study of star formation under metal-poor conditions.
  Stellar Hydrodynamics
  Dr R Hirschi
Application Deadline: 15 February 2020

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.
  Young stars in the solar neighbourhood: Structure and dynamics
  Dr R D Jeffries
Application Deadline: 15 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Data from the Gaia astrometry satellite and large-scale spectroscopic surveys are leading to new insights into the formation of stars, stellar systems, star clusters and associations.
  PhD positions on IceCube experiment
  Dr T Katori
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The IceCube Neutrino Observatory, at the South Pole, Antarctica, is designed to detect high-energy astrophysical neutrinos. These high-energy astronomical messengers provide information to probe the most violent astrophysical sources.
  Dynamics of Jupiter’s magnetosphere and aurora
  Dr S Badman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are entering a new era of understanding of giant planet environments thanks to the Juno mission at Jupiter, and concurrent Hubble Space Telescope images of Jupiter’s UV aurora.
  Gravitational waves from pulsars
  Dr M Pitkin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gravitational wave are ripples in space-time emitted by some of the most extreme events in the Universe. colliding black holes and neutron stars.
