Projects on Offer in 2016
PhD projects for 2017 will be posted shortly - the 2016 projects are retained here as an indication of the range of research available to incoming students
PhD projects for 2016 are summarized below with contact details for staff members involved. While we encourage candidates for PhD studies to indicate in their applications those areas of research that are of particular interest to them (as well as indicating potential supervisors, where appropriate), the specific projects outlined should be regarded as indicative rather than exclusive or rigid.
In practice, students, supervisors, and projects are matched on an iterative process (based primarily on students' interests); and it is in the nature of research that projects may evolve and develop into new directions.
Research topics on offer loosely fall into five broad categories:
- Galaxies and Cosmology
- Stars, Star formation and Nebulae
- Exoplanetary Systems
- Atmospheric / Magnetospheric Physics
- Astronomical Instrumentation
More details of the current research being carried out by the UCL Astrophysics Group can be found from our home page.
