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

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

Silicon Sensor Particle Detectors for the Upgrade of the ATLAS Experiment at the CERN LHC

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
A position is open for an enthusiastic PhD student to conduct research in developing silicon sensor technologies in use at the energy frontier at the ATLAS experiment. Read more

Searching for Higgs Boson Pair Production with the ATLAS Experiment at the CERN LHC

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
It's possible that the 125 GeV Higgs boson discovered by the CERN ATLAS and CMS Experiments is only one of several neutrally-charged Higgs bosons predicted by theories beyond the Standard Model. 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

Scalable cavity quantum electrodynamics

  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
Single photons are ideal carriers of quantum information but typically interact weakly with each. other. To exploit the effective photon-photon interactions that lie at the heart of many quantum. Read more

Routes to stable organic solar cell

Organic solar cells have seen a huge resurgence since the replacement of fullerene acceptors by non-fullerene acceptors (NFA’s). With a whole zoo of different NFA’s, these have seen the power conversion efficiency reach dizzying new records. Read more

PhD in flexible perovskite photovoltaics

Do you want to be part of the coming solar revolution? This PhD is perfect for you!. Metal halide perovskites have emerged as a new class of semiconductor having important applications in next generation solar-cells. Read more

Novel physics in 2D materials probed in optical spectroscopy with deep sub-diffraction resolution: PhD at the new state-of-the-art £1.5M spectroscopy centre in Sheffield

Atomically-thin layers of two-dimensional (2D) materials can be assembled in vertical stacks (called ‘heterostructures’), which are held together by relatively weak van der Waals forces, allowing for coupling between monolayer crystals with arbitrary lattice constants and mutual rotation, or ‘twist’. Read more

Nonlinear and Quantum properties of polaritons in photonic lattices

Recent advances in semiconductor nano-technology have led to a new generation of robust controllable structures where manipulation of coupling between light and matter can be performed on a sub-micrometer scale. 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

Electroweak measurements with the ATLAS Experiment

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
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 Higgs and diboson measurements. Read more
