PhD Studentship on the SBND Neutrino Experiment

About the Project

Applications are invited from talented and creative students for a PhD place in Experimental Particle Physics, to join the Sussex group working on the SBND experiment under the supervision of Dr Clark Griffith. A number of experiments have shown anomalies in neutrino oscillation results, hinting at a possible additional neutrino state beyond the three present in the Standard Model. The Short Baseline Neutrino programme at Fermilab aims to settle the question of whether or not the anomalies are real or not, with a set of three large liquid argon TPC neutrino detectors: ICARUS, MicroBooNE, and the Short Baseline Near Detector (SBND). SBND will begin commissioning in 2022, and this project will involve helping with final installation and optimisation of the detector, and analysis of initial data. The detector technology used in SBND also provides the basis for the far detector planned for the next generation long baseline oscillation experiment, DUNE, and this project will also involve helping determine the final design for this future mega-experiment.

Funding Notes

• Fully-paid tuition fees for three and a half years.
• A tax-free bursary for living costs for three and a half years. From October 2021/22 this is expected to be £15560 per year.
• A research training support grant for three and a half years of £1,250 per year.

References

• Open to students from the UK, EU and Overseas.
• If you are not a UK national, nor an EU national with settled/pre-settled status in the UK, you may need to apply for a student study visa before admission.
• hold or expect to hold a UK upper second-class degree (or non-UK equivalent) in Physics or a closely-related area, or else a lower second-class degree followed by a relevant Master's degree.
We also welcome applications from independently-funded students interested in our experimental programme.
