  ARGONCUBE – Design, Construction and Test of the Liquid Argon Near Detector for the DUNE Neutrino Experiment
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In association with the giant 10 kton DUNE (Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment) liquid argon neutrino detector being built at Homestake there will need to be a smaller Near Detector at Fermilab.
  ATLAS / Data Analysis: investigating the nature of electroweak symmetry breaking and searching for new physics phenomena using diboson measurements.
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr K Lohwasser
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A position is open for an enthusiastic PhD student to conduct research at the energy frontier at the ATLAS experiment. The main topic is to investigate further the nature of electroweak symmetry breaking and to search for new physics phenomena using diboson measurements.
  ATLAS: Searching for Di-Higgs Boson Production
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr T Vickey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It’s possible that the 125 GeV Higgs boson discovered by the ATLAS and CMS Experiments is only one of several neutrally-charged Higgs bosons predicted by theories beyond the Standard Model of particle physics.
  Axion and hidden sector physics research
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof E Daw
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Axions and hidden sector particles are possibilites for the solution of the dark matter problem and for more general new physics at low energies.
  Biophysical modelling of bacterial cell wall architectures
  Dr B Chakrabarti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial cell walls are examples of self-assembled composite structures that are formed out of equilibrium. In recent times the text book view of bacterial cell wall has been modified as a result of high resolution imaging studies[1, 2].
  Circuit compilers for near-term quantum computers
  Dr E Campbell, Prof S Benjamin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The number of elementary gates in a quantum computation determines the runtime of the quantum computer. It is clearly advantageous to have faster computations that use fewer gates and "circuit compilation" is the art of optimizing and automating this process.
  COSINE-100 - Search for Dark Matter Annual Modulation
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Sheffield group has pioneered the search for dark matter using Sodium Iodide crystals and is now participating in the search for a galactic particle dark matter signals using the so-called annual modulation signal as part of the new COSINE-100 experiment on South Korea.
  Cosmic-Ray Muons in Different Applications
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr V Kudryavtsev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cosmic-ray muons are known to be useful in applications beyond particle astrophysics. They have helped with mapping structure of volcanoes and with finding voids in various geological structures.
  CYGNUS - Global Search for Dark Matter Particles with Directionality
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sheffield is a key player in the world-leading dark matter experiment CYGNUS that is seeking a unique directional signal for Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs), the favoured candidate to explain the missing dark matter of the Universe.
  Dark Matter Search with the LZ Experiment
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr V Kudryavtsev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) is a project to build and operate a high-sensitivity dark matter experiment in the deep mine at SURF (South Dakota, USA) able to probe most of the WIMP parameter space region free from neutrino background.
