PhD Studentships & Vacancies

With our commitment to continually seeking new research opportunities in the areas of astronomy, physics and planetary and space sciences there is often the need to recruit new staff.

On the research side specialists skills from across a wide range of areas of planetary and space sciences - from geological, through chemical and physical with varying degrees of practical and theoretical backgrounds.

Support staff are critical to the success of SPS and while opportunities are generally relatively infrequent but may be in areas of administration, secretarial, electrical and/or mechanical engineering, laboratory, etc.

SPS also regularly have a number of PhD projects on offer each year and are always keen to explore other postgraduate training such as part-time PhD and research MSc.
