UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL LANCASHIRE
International PhD Scholarship

Reference: INT-047Clowes

A full-time scholarship is available in the School of Computing, 
Engineering and Physical Sciences. The scholarship is tenable for 
up to 3-years for a PhD (via MPhil route) [subject to satisfactory 
progress] and is open to international applicants only. UK/EU applicants 
are not eligible. The scholarship will provide 15000 towards the 
international tuition fee over 3-years.

Project Title. The largest structures in the early universe: compatibility
with concordance cosmology

Project Description.

Using the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) we have discovered nearly an
order-of-magnitude increase over the pre-SDSS total of early-universe Large
Quasar Groups. These LQGs comprise the largest structures known in the 
early universe. The PhD project will be concerned with the analysis of the
properties of these new LQGs (physical size, overdensity, morphology) and a
comparison with the expectations from the concordance model of cosmology. 
The concordance model appears to give a plausible model of the universe in 
terms of its compatibility with the cosmic microwave background, but there 
are hints of difficulties, including initial indications that there are 
more large-scale structures than it predicts. The PhD project will 
therefore be addressing in particular this aspect of the prevalence of 
large-scale structure. The physical size and overdensity of some of these 
LQGs seem likely to provide intriguing challenges for the concordance 
cosmology.

Applicants should have, or expect to receive, a qualification equivalent to
a high class UK honours degree.
