D.Phil (PhD) Projects offered in Astrophysics

D.Phil projects for 2020 are listed below. We will hold an open day on December 3, where potential applicants can find out more information about graduate study in astrophysics. Details of application procedures may be found at: https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/graduate/courses/dphil-astrophysics

We place great store on matching students to supervisors and to projects which interest them. Prospective students are thus encouraged to read through the available projects carefully, and where appropriate to contact the relevant supervisor to discuss the project. There is no limit to how many projects you can express interest in when you come to apply, and, if your preferences change, you can update your choices throughout the process. Projects are listed within loose groupings below (or in the left column) but note that some projects span more than one area.

Cosmology
Exoplanets and Stellar Physics
Galaxies
Instrumentation
Theory
Transients, Pulsars and High-Energy-Astrophysics
