About This PhD Project

Project Description

Work on the design, construction, operation and data analysis of the SBND experiment at Fermilab, Chicago. Chance for long term attachment (6-12 months) in Chicago. SBND is a new short baseline neutrino detector funded by US and UK partners, aimed at searching for sterile neutrinos and as a test bed for the large 10kton DUNE experiment to be built at Homestake, USA. Sheffield is playing a leading part, responsible for construction of the central detector parts. The student can participate in assembly and test of the experiment, simulations and data analysis from 2017. This project offers a rare chance in neutrino physics to gain experience of both detector hardware and operation as well as data analysis towards new physics.
