The High Energy Physics group of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Sheffield is offering a PhD studentship to start in October 2015 or soon afterwards. The group is involved in the ATLAS experiment at the LHC, ATLAS-upgrade programme, neutrino experiments (T2K, Hyper-K, DUNE, SBND, MICE/Neutrino Factory), direct dark matter searches (LUX-ZEPLIN, DRIFT and DM-Ice) and gravitational wave searches (Advanced LIGO). On this occasion we are primarily seeking candidates to join the LUX-ZEPLIN or neutrino experiments but strong candidates wishing to work in other areas are also encouraged to apply. A student joining the LUX-ZEPLIN programme, is expected to contribute to the software development, Monte Carlo modelling and detector construction. A description of the group activities can be found at http://hep.shef.ac.uk. For more information about the LUX-ZEPLIN and neutrino programmes, please, e-mail [email protected]
Funding is available for UK nationals or EU nationals who have been resident in the UK for 3 or more years prior to applying for this studentship.
