  DUNE – Design and Optimisation of The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment at Fermilab
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
DUNE is the a billion dollar international neutrino experiment in which a beam of neutrinos will be fired from Fermilab, USA to a 10 kton liquid argon detector built 1300 km away in a new underground facility at Homestake, S.
  CYGNUS - Global Search for Dark Matter Particles with Directionality
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Sheffield is a key player in the world-leading dark matter experiment CYGNUS that is seeking a unique directional signal for Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs), the favoured candidate to explain the missing dark matter of the Universe.
  The Search for Ancient Supernovae
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr M Malek
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Core-collapse supernovae are amongst the most energetic events in the Universe. A single supernova will outshine an entire galaxy, yet the light is less than 1% of the energy that is released.
  The WATCHMAN Project: Using Anti-Neutrinos for Nuclear Threat Reduction
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr M Malek
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The WATer CHerenkov Monitor for Anti-Neutrinos (WATCHMAN) is a US/UK collaboration that aims to use nature’s most ’ghostly’ particle (the neutrino) for the extremely practical purpose of nuclear threat reduction.
  Cosmic-Ray Muons in Different Applications
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr V Kudryavtsev
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
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.
  Neutrino Oscillation Study and Proton Decay Search with DUNE
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr V Kudryavtsev
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
DUNE is a large international project to design, construct and operate a multi-kiloton scale liquid argon detector for neutrino physics, neutrino astrophysics and proton decay search.
  Dark Matter Search with the LZ Experiment
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr V Kudryavtsev
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) is a project to build and operate a high-sensitivity dark matter experiment in the deep mine at SURF (South Dakota, USA) able to probe most of the WIMP parameter space region free from neutrino background.
  How are AGN triggered?
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Prof C Tadhunter
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
To accurately incorporate active galactic nuclei (AGN) into galaxy evolution models it is important to understand how and when AGN are triggered as their their host galaxies grow via gas accretion, and also whether the triggering mechanism depends on the luminosity of the AGN.
  How good is the far-IR as a tracer of star formation activity in AGN host galaxies?
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Prof C Tadhunter
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
In order to understand the links between black hole growth and galaxy evolution it is crucial to have a “clean” indicator of the star formation activity in host galaxies of active galactic nuclei (AGN).
  High speed observations of Gaia white dwarf binaries
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Dr S Parsons
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The recent second data release from the European Space Agency’s Gaia satellite mission has opened up huge areas of stellar physics.
