We are active participants in a wide range of international collaborations, including the Dark Energy Survey (DES), the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI), the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-IV) and the Euclid satellite.
PhD studentships will be available for potential research projects in:
- Galaxy evolution
- Stellar population modelling
- Early universe cosmology
- Testing gravity on cosmological scales
- Dark energy
- Large scale structure
- Gravitational lensing
- Gravitational waves
There is no formal closing date, but applicants are advised to submit an application as early as possible. If you are seeking a funded studentship, you should aim to submit *by the end of January.* Interviews for these studentships take place in February / March for entry in October.

We welcome applications from all qualified applicants, but applications are particularly encouraged from traditionally under-represented groups in science. The University of Portsmouth holds an Athena SWAN bronze award and is an Institute of Physics Project Juno Supporter; these projects show a commitment to introduce organisational and cultural practices that promote gender equality in science and create a better working environment for men and women.
The ICG is a member of the SouthEast Physics Network (SEPNet), a consortium of nine world-class universities in the southeast of England. Our post-graduate students have the opportunity to engage with the SEPNet Graduate Network (GRADNet). By channelling this broad research expertise into one central, combined resource, GRADNet provides a wide range of postgraduate training opportunities, including specialised schools and student-led workshops and conferences.
