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

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

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

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

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

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

Laser-driven positron sources for industrial and fundamental science applications

The group of Prof. Gianluca Sarri is one the leading groups in the European project EuPRAXIA (European Plasma Research Accelerator with Excellence in Applications [1]), aimed at the construction of the first plasma-based particle accelerator facility in the world for industrial applications. Read more

Advanced mechanisms for laser-driven ion acceleration

The interaction of intense, ultra-short laser pulses with matter leads to extreme physical conditions. Matter is ionized instantaneously, and transformed into a plasma, which can support extremely large electric fields arising from local charge separation. Read more

PhD in laser-driven acceleration of electron beams

A studentship is available from October 2022 for a motivated and inquisitive physicist to undertake experimental and theoretical/numerical investigations of direct-acceleration of charged particle beams with laser beams. Read more

PhD studentship on the Developing and Operating a Trapped Ion Quantum computer Prototype

We recently invented a method where quantum gates with trapped ions are executed by the application of voltages to a microchip in the presence of a few global radiation fields analogous to the operation of transistors in a classical computer. Read more
