  ATLAS: Searching for Di-Higgs Boson Production
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr T Vickey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It’s possible that the 125 GeV Higgs boson discovered by the ATLAS and CMS Experiments is only one of several neutrally-charged Higgs bosons predicted by theories beyond the Standard Model of particle physics.
  CYGNUS - Global Search for Dark Matter Particles with Directionality
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  WATCHMAN – 6 kton Neutrino Experiment for Nuclear Non-proliferation and Supernova Detection
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Sheffield group is playing a leading part in a US-UK collaboration that is building a 6 kton neutrino detector in the UK at the Boulby Underground Laboratory.
  COSINE-100 - Search for Dark Matter Annual Modulation
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Sheffield group has pioneered the search for dark matter using Sodium Iodide crystals and is now participating in the search for a galactic particle dark matter signals using the so-called annual modulation signal as part of the new COSINE-100 experiment on South Korea.
  ARGONCUBE – Design, Construction and Test of the Liquid Argon Near Detector for the DUNE Neutrino Experiment
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In association with the giant 10 kton DUNE (Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment) liquid argon neutrino detector being built at Homestake there will need to be a smaller Near Detector at Fermilab.
  SBND – Sterile Neutrino Search with the Short Baseline Neutrino Detector Experiment at Fermilab
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Short Baseline Neutrino Detector (SBND) at Fermilab is a 100 ton liquid argon detector that is part of a suite of three new detectors based on new technology using liquid argon, sited in a neutrino beam at Fermilab.
  ProtoDUNE – Test Experiment for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment DUNE - Optimisation and Data Analysis
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

ProtoDUNE is a 770 ton liquid argon detector being constructed at CERN as a test-bed for the huge DUNE experiment, 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 in the Homestake mine, S.
  DUNE – Design and Optimisation of The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment at Fermilab
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  RATRACK - Directional Sensitive Nuclear Recoil Detectors for Homeland Security and Environmental Radon Assay
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Sheffield particle physics group is acknowledged by the UK research council STFC as having one of the best programmes of spin-out activity designed for using particle physics technology in industry and for society.
  The Search for Ancient Supernovae
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr M Malek
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
