  Prof P Newman  Applications accepted all year round  Funded PhD Project (UK Students Only)

About the Project

The Birmingham Particle and Nuclear Physics groups are working with international collaborators in the ePIC collaboration towards a detector for the Electron Ion Collider which is expected to start operation at the Brookhaven Laboratory in the USA around 2030. We are one of the main groups working towards a state-of-the-art silicon tracking and vertexing detector. Prof Paul Newman is also working on preparations for Physics analysis in the areas of inclusive and diffractive Deep Inelastic Scattering.

A PhD project is available in 2023-24 and can be constructed with varying combinations of work on the development of the silicon detector and simulation studies for the physics exploitation. Please just get in contact for more details!
