AI-driven data analytics for particle identification in high-energy gamma-beam experiments

  Research Group: Nuclear Physics
Advanced electronic-signal data analytics is opening up new opportunities for physical science research, ranging from nuclear processes in the Big Bang [1] and neutron-star mergers, to how we can create radionuclides for medical diagnosis and treatment through gamma-induced fission and gamma-induced charged-particle emission.

PhD Studentship in Hybrid quantum communication and sensing networks

One of the most exciting recent developments in physics has been the application of quantum physics to new technologies and the Sussex Centre for Quantum Technologies is one of the world’s leading centres for research in this area. Read more

Chemistry in planet-forming regions revealed by ALMA

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) is a telescope in Chile that observes the universe at millimeter wavelengths. Read more

Cosmological Modified Gravity simulations with massive sterile neutrinos

This project would involve setting up a large (>100 Mpc) cosmological simulation in the Modified Gravity (MOND) framework, but supplemented with 11 eV sterile neutrinos to make up the same total dark energy and matter density as in the Lambda Cold Dark Matter (ΛCDM) cosmology. Read more

The Japanese Long-Baseline Neutrino Programme (T2K, SuperKamiokande and HyperKamiokande)

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
The particle physics and particle astrophysics (PPPA) group at the University of Sheffield has a long-standing involvement in Japan’s long-baseline neutrino programme. Read more

Identification and classification of coherent flow structures in the plasma of the Sun’s photosphere

The Sun is a star with a cyclic magnetic activity that can impact all the solar system. Thus, the solar magnetic field can interact with the Earth's magnetic field, permitting the entrance of energetic particles in the upper atmosphere, affecting technological devices, telecommunications and human health.

PhD programme in Physics

The PhD involves the completion of an original, scholarly piece of research. The courses available within the PhD programme in physics are in form of lectures, classes, seminars, tutorials, computer labs and others. Read more

What triggers the growth of Black Holes?

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
It seems that all massive galaxies host, at their centres, supermassive black holes with masses of between a million to a billion times the mass of our Sun. Read more

The dynamics of small-N systems

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Most stars form in groups of dozens to a few hundred, but our understanding of the dynamics of such systems is surprisingly very lacking.  In particular… Read more

Surveying the sky for hungry black holes

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Over the next few years, a new dimension in astronomy will reach maturity. the temporal dimension. Rather relying on static "photos" of the sky, astronomers will transition to "filming" sky night after night. Read more

Searches for supersymmetry and dark matter particles with the ATLAS experiment

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
The student will work on the analysis of the data collected by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider to search for new particles that are postulated by Supersymmetry. Read more

Neutrino Oscillation Study and Nucleon Decay Search with DUNE

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
DUNE is a large international project to design, construct and operate a multi-kiloton scale liquid argon detector for neutrino physics, neutrino astrophysics and a search for physics beyond the Standard Model. Read more

Exploring the environments of exploding stars

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Supernovae are the explosive deaths of certain types of stars; in particular, stars a lot more massive than our Sun. The route from massive star formation… Read more
