  ESRC PhD Studentships in the Social Sciences in the Midlands Graduate School
The Midlands Graduate School is an accredited Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP).
  Reducing sedentary behaviour for improved physical function in type 2 diabetes
  Dr T Yates, Dr C Edwardson
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is one of the most prevalent and costly chronic diseases globally affecting close to one in ten adults.
  3.5 Years PhD Studentship: Microstructural Characterisation of thermally aged and creep-fatigued steels
  Prof B Chen, Prof H Dong
Applications accepted all year round
Department. Engineering. Supervisors. Prof. Bo Chen and Prof. Hongbiao Dong. Eligibility. UK/EU/International graduates with the required entry requirements.
  Black hole astrophysics through timing studies
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Dr S Vaughan, Prof G Wynn
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Accreting black holes hold many mysteries despite five decades of study. They are too small to image directly and so to understand the physics of such systems we must rely on what we can learn from the variations in brightness and the energy spectrum of the light they emit.
  Black holes, planets and dynamic accretion discs in astrophysics
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Dr C Nixon, Prof G Wynn
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Accretion discs are central to much of astronomy. they are the birth sites of stars and planets, and they surround supermassive black holes in active galaxies and quasars.
  Developments in Intensity Interferometry
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Prof J Lapington
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
One of the strongest drivers in astronomy is the observation of the universe in ever greater detail by improving the spatial resolution of telescopes.
  Do black holes affect how galaxies evolve?
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Dr J Aird, Prof MG Watson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Supermassive black holes are now thought to lurk at the centres of most, if not all, galaxies but it is still unclear how these black holes form, what drives their subsequent growth over the history of the Universe, and how they affect the galaxies they lie in.
  Electrodynamics of the solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere-atmosphere coupled system
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Prof S Milan, Dr S Imber
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The interaction of the solar wind with the Earth’s magnetic field leads to dynamic phenomena in near-Earth space, including the energization and circulation of plasma within the magnetosphere and ionosphere – the most visible manifestation of which is the polar auroras – which lead to a hostile environment for space- and ground-based technologies.
  Extra-Solar Gas Giant Planets, theories meet observations
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Prof S Nayakshin, Dr M Burleigh
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The census of close separation exoplanets now exceeds thousands of planets around stars of different masses, metallicities, and binarity.
  Gravitational lenses with ALMA
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Prof A Blain, Prof N Tanvir
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The mass of intervening galaxies and clusters deflects the light coming from more distant galaxies, which can lead to dramatic magnification effects.
