  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
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
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.
  BBSRC DTP White Rose Studentship - Structural and functional characterization of the TAD pilus of the multi-antibiotic-resistant bacterium P. aeruginosa
  Research Group: Biological Physics
  Dr J Bergeron, Dr W Durham
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Surface attached biofilms bacteria are major cause of recurrent infections because they allow cells to withstand much higher concentrations of antibiotics.
  Biophysical modelling of bacterial cell wall architectures
  Research Group: Biological Physics
  Dr B Chakrabarti
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
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].
  Computational projects to investigate novel magnetic phenomena in oxides
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof G Gehring
Applications accepted all year round
A new research area is developing called Spintonics. This means that it is electronics in which both the charge and the spin of the mobile electrons play a role.
  COSINE-100 - Search for Dark Matter Annual Modulation
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
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
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
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
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
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
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
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.
  Development of quantum computing circuits based on semiconductor quantum dot spins.
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Dr E Chekhovich
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Quantum information processing is a concept that seeks to exploit quantum effects in constructing computers more powerful than any classical digital computer.
  DUNE – Design and Optimisation of The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment at Fermilab
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
DUNE is the a billion dollar international neutrino experiment in which a beam of neutrinos will be fired from Fermilab, USA to a 10 kton liquid argon detector built 1300 km away in a new underground facility at Homestake, S.
