Institute of Astronomy

Potential Supervisors and their Research Interests

Below are the names and links to the members of staff expected to be available as supervisors for students beginning PhDs in October 2023. Exploring recent papers with the individuals as authors on the NASA ADS website will give an insight into current research interests. You can also click on the name of an individual supervisor to access information describing current research interests.

The Institute has a number of emeritus staff and individuals nearing retirement or expecting to change institution. While such individuals often engage and collaborate with postgraduate students they are not available as primary supervisors of Ph.D. students.

There is a specific opportunity for a studentship [to work with Dr Nicolas Walton] to use Gaia data to study stars hosting extra solar planets. To be eligible for the position students must not be residents of the United Kingdom. Further details.
