The Department of Applied Maths has a fully funded PhD studentship in astrophysical fluid dynamics. This is to be held within the Astrophysical and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics research group, which is one of the leading astrophysics research groups of its type in the world.
The topic of the studentship is open, providing it falls within the remit of STFC and the expertise of the group. Likely topics are thus planetary and extrasolar planetary dynamics (the geodynamo, planetary dynamos, tidal interactions between planets and stars, planet formation), solar and stellar dynamics (solar and stellar dynamos, hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic instabilities, turbulence), as well as galactic and extragalactic dynamics on the largest scales.
More details of potential research projects and supervisors can be found at https://agfd.leeds.ac.uk
Applications are invited from candidates with or expecting a minimum of a UK upper second class honours degree (2:1), and/or a Master's degree in a relevant subject.
How to apply
Formal applications for research degree study should be made online through the university's website. Please state clearly in the research information section that the PhD you wish to be considered for is the 'Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics' as well as Professor Steve Tobias and Professor David Hughes as your proposed supervisors.
If English is not your first language, you must provide evidence that you meet the University’s minimum English Language requirements.

We welcome scholarship applications from all suitably-qualified candidates, but UK black and minority ethnic (BME) researchers are currently under-represented in our Postgraduate Research community, and we would therefore particularly encourage applications from UK BME candidates. All scholarships will be awarded on the basis of merit.
