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

Dynamics of massive black hole binaries in dense stellar systems

We are looking for an enthusiastic and strongly motivated candidate to work on a computational project in Galactic dynamics and the modelling of massive black hole binaries as sources of gravitational waves. Read more

Direct Dark Matter searches with LZ detector

The Lux-Zeplin (LZ) experiment is searching for mysterious Dark Matter particles using a Time Projection Chamber (TPC) containing 7 tonnes of liquefied xenon as a target material. 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

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

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

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

Cosmic-Ray Muons in Different Applications

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
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. Read more

The missing link between protoplanetary discs and planetary systems

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Recent surveys led by our group have discovered a large number of yet unexplored exosolar analogues to our Kuiper belt – bright discs made of planetesimals and asteroids in orbit around their central stars. Read more

The Non-thermal Emission from Colliding Winds Binaries

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Colliding Winds Binaries are stellar systems containing two (usually massive) stars each with a powerful stellar wind. In systems with O stars or Wolf-Rayet stars, the winds collide at very high speeds (1000-3000 km/s). Read more
