PhD Studentships 2018

The Institute of Cosmology & Gravitation at the University of Portsmouth is one of the leading groups in research on cosmology and astrophysics in the UK. We are active participants in a wide range of international collaborations, including the Dark Energy Survey (DES), the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-IV) and Euclid.
ICG PhD Students, October 2017
PhD studentships starting in October 2018 will be available for research in:

Galaxy evolution
Stellar population modelling
Very early Universe
Dark energy
Testing gravity on cosmological scales
Large scale structure
Gravitational lensing
Supernovae
Gravitational Waves

 
Applications should reach us by Wednesday 14th February 2018, but will be considered until the positions are filled.
PhD applicants should have or expect to obtain a good honours degree or equivalent in Physics, Maths or Astronomy. Applicants should send a CV and a brief statement of research interests, and arrange for up to 2 letters of recommendation to be emailed directly to icg-admin@port.ac.uk, or posted to:
