Dynamical Processes in the Geo-space Plasma

The terrestrial magnetosphere is formed as a result of the interaction between the magnetic field of the Earth and the solar wind (quasineutral flow of electrons and ions from the Sun). Read more

Assessing High Latitude Atmosphere-Ionophere Coupling: Ionospheric impacts of SSWs at high latitudes

Sudden Stratospheric Warmings (SSWs) are severe climatic events in the upper atmosphere, where the accumulated effect of planetary wave breaking results in a weakening of the stratospheric polar vortex, sometimes resulting in a reversal of the stratospheric zonal wind. Read more

Identification and classification of coherent flow structures in the plasma of the Sun’s photosphere

The Sun is a star with a cyclic magnetic activity that can impact all the solar system. Thus, the solar magnetic field can interact with the Earth's magnetic field, permitting the entrance of energetic particles in the upper atmosphere, affecting technological devices, telecommunications and human health.

The. Department of Physics. at the University of Surrey is offering a number of fully funded PhD studentships across its research groups in astrophysics, nuclear physics, radiation and medical physics, soft matter and photonics & quantum science. Read more

Properties of evolved hot luminous stars from large spectroscopic surveys

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Massive stars are rare, though dominate the radiative, mechanical and chemical feedback in star-forming galaxies. Historically spectroscopic studies of hot massive stars in the Milky Way and nearby galaxies have been restricted to small sample sizes. Read more

Pathways to thermonuclear supernovae

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Thermonuclear supernovae are the result of the explosion of a white dwarf star in a binary system, the most well know of which are the cosmologically important Type Ia supernovae (SN Ia). Read more

The Japanese Long-Baseline Neutrino Programme (T2K, SuperKamiokande and HyperKamiokande)

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
The particle physics and particle astrophysics (PPPA) group at the University of Sheffield has a long-standing involvement in Japan’s long-baseline neutrino programme. Read more

Dark Matter Direct Detection in QUEST-DMC

The Centre for Particle Physics at Royal Holloway is offering a PhD opportunity to search for dark matter in the QUEST-DMC experiment together with the London Low Temperature Laboratory, which is part of the European Microkelvin Platform. Read more

Cosmic-Ray Muons in Different Applications

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
Cosmic-ray muons are known to be useful in applications beyond particle astrophysics. They have helped with mapping structure of volcanoes and with finding voids in various geological structures. Read more

Neutrino Oscillation Study and Proton Decay Search with DUNE

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
DUNE is a large international project to design, construct and operate a multi-kiloton scale liquid argon detector for neutrino physics, neutrino astrophysics and a search for physics beyond the Standard Model. Read more

Dark Matter Search with the LZ Experiment

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) is a project to build and operate a high-sensitivity dark matter experiment in the deep mine at SURF in South Dakota, USA. Read more

Searches for supersymmetry and dark matter particles with the ATLAS experiment

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
The student will work on the analysis of the data collected by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider to search for new particles that are postulated by Supersymmetry. Read more
