Manufacturing Magnetic Nano Structures

EPSRC funded project 3.5 years full time starting October 2022. Magnetic nanostructures can be effectively fabricated from ferrofluids via photolithography and allow for novel nano-scale geometries, properties, and applications in the fields of magnetics, energy, and materials. Read more

Artificial Intelligence at the Electron Ion Collider

  Research Group: Nuclear Physics
The project is focused on the development of novel analysis tools based on Artificial Intelligence to enable new insights from both experimental and computational data while revolutionising the way high-level data analysis is currently done in nuclear and particle physics. 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

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

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

Dark Matter Search with the LZ Experiment

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) is a project to build and operate a high-sensitivity dark matter experiment in the deep mine at SURF in South Dakota, USA. Read more

Dark Matter Search with ADMX and the Quantum Sensors for the Hidden Sector Collaboration.

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
This Ph.D. project involves searches for hidden sector dark matter, including QCD axions and axion like particles (ALPs). Our group at Sheffield leads the 'Quantum Sensors for the Hidden Sector' collaboration, and collaborates with the Axion Dark Matter Experiment (ADMX) collaboration in the USA. Read more

Cosmic-Ray Muons in Different Applications
