  The variability of the Earth’s electron radiation belt
  Prof R Horne, Dr G Del-Zanna, Dr S Glauert
Application Deadline: 15 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Earth’s electron radiation belts consist of high energy (relativistic) electrons which are trapped by the Earth’s external magnetic field and which circulate around the Earth.
  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.
  Dynamics of Jupiter’s magnetosphere and aurora
  Dr S Badman

The Centre for Particle Physics at Royal Holloway is offering a PhD opportunity to search for dark matter with the DarkSide-20k experiment.
  PhD Engineering - In-orbit fabrication of large space structures using novel manufacturing technologies
  Prof C McInnes
Application Deadline: 7 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The James Watt School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow is seeking a highly motivated graduate to undertake a 3.5-year PhD project entitled.
  PhD in Geographical and Earth Sciences - Masters of disguise: can achondrite parent bodies hide beneath a chondritic cover?
  Dr t Keller, Dr L Daly, Dr J Einsle, Prof M Lee
Application Deadline: 3 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chondrite meteorites are the most primitive known building blocks of terrestrial planets as they show elemental abundances as still found in our Sun [1].
  PhD in Geographical and Earth Sciences - Understanding the lifespan of impact-induced hydrothermal systems from X-ray tomography and numerical modelling
  Dr t Keller, Dr A Macente, Dr A Pickersgill, Prof M Lee
Application Deadline: 3 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrothermal systems likely played an essential role in the origin of life, both on Earth and potentially on other planets [1–4].
  A Comparative Study of Metallic Ions in the Atmospheres of Earth and Mars
  Prof J Plane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metals are injected into planetary atmospheres by the ablation of interplanetary dust particles. The major species (Fe, Mg and Na) exist as atoms and ions that are excellent tracers of dynamics and chemistry.
  Fully funded positions in Engineering and Physical Sciences

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are now open for up to 12 PhD studentships at the University of Nottingham, tackling engineering and physical sciences challenges.
  New models of Outer Radiation Belt Dynamics
  Dr C Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department hosts a vibrant Space and Atmospheric Electricity group whose research interests span the remit of Space Weather from the Sun through the heliosphere to Earth.
  How are AGN triggered?
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Prof C Tadhunter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To accurately incorporate active galactic nuclei (AGN) into galaxy evolution models it is important to understand how and when AGN are triggered as their their host galaxies grow via gas accretion, and also whether the triggering mechanism depends on the luminosity of the AGN.
  Physical and wind properties of hot, luminous stars with ULLYSES
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Dr P Crowther
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Massive stars are rare, though dominate the radiative, mechanical and chemical feedback in star-forming galaxies.
