    Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

The IceCube Neutrino Observatory, at the South Pole, Antarctica, is designed to detect high-energy astrophysical neutrinos. These high-energy astronomical messengers provide information to probe the most violent astrophysical sources. An array of 8,160 digital optical modules (DOMs) are distributed in the antarctic ice to cover roughly 1 kilometre cubic volume, making IceCube the largest neutrino detector in the world.

During this Phd, you will join the King’s IceCube group, supervised directly by Dr Katori, working on the analysis of high-energy astrophysical neutrinos and looking for new physics from the astrophysical neutrino sample. The King’s group is also actively working on phenomenology related to astrophysical neutrinos. The successful PhD student will attend the University of London Particle Physics Postgraduate Lecture Course during their first year and will also have the opportunity to work closely with the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) group.

Application Procedure

To be considered for the position candidates must apply via King’s Apply online application system. Details are available at

Please indicate your desired supervisor and quote research group [Experimental Particle and Astroparticle Physics Group] in your application and all correspondence.

The selection process will involve a pre-selection on documents, if selected this will be followed by an invitation to an interview. If successful at the interview, an offer will be provided in due time.

Funding Notes

Funding is available for 3.5 years and covers tuition fees at the level set for UK/EU students, c. £5,300 p.a. and a tax-free stipend of approximately £17,000 p.a. with possible inflationary increases after the first year. There is additional funding available for a long-term attachment during the second year of the fellowship.
