We welcome applications from students wishing to undertake a PhD in the Astrophysics Research Centre starting in September/October 2018. We expect to have at least five fully funded PhD studentships, details below. The five funded positions are only available for students fulfilling UK national requirements (either UK nationals, or have been in the UK for the last 3 years for a purpose which is not full-time education). An exception to this rule is the PhD project entitled “Solar Physics with Biomedical Applications”, which is fully funded for any EU national, regardless of whether they have previously spent any time in the UK. Self-funding students or students with their own international funding grants are also very welcome to apply :
Please note that Queen's University will not accept applications that do not follow the required procedures.
Contact details for all staff are available here.
