About This PhD Project

Project Description

DUNE is a large international project to design, construct and operate a multi-kiloton scale liquid argon detector for neutrino physics, astrophysics and proton decay search. The detector will be built deep underground at the SURF facility (South Dakota, USA). The PPPA group is involved in the DUNE project with one of the responsibilities to model background produced by cosmic-ray muons and investigating the sensitivity of the experiment to different tasks. This PhD project includes Monte Carlo simulations of muons and muon-induced cascades for different detector designs, studying discrimination between signal and background events and evaluating detector sensitivity. The student will also be expected to contribute to the data analysis from the 35-ton prototype detector. The candidate should have a good knowledge of particle physics and programming skills. The knowledge of nuclear physics and particle astrophysics is desirable.
