Project Description

The Center for Particle Physics at Royal Holloway is offering a PhD opportunity on the T2K experiment. The T2K experiment is a neutrino oscillation experiment which is searching for the origin of the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the universe. To date, T2K has made world-leading measurements in several neutrino oscillation parameters, and is now on the threshold of exploring whether CP-violation with neutrinos can inform our understanding of the origin of the universe. The PhD student will work with data from to T2K experiment to search for CP-violation, in particular to understand uncertainties for making neutrino oscillation measurements, especially those coming from neutrino cross section uncertainties, and implement strategies for reducing these uncertainties. These will then be used in oscillation measurements. There are additional opportunities to work on hardware projects associated with future neutrino experiments. These activities will build a broad range of skills, including advanced simulation techniques, operation and automation of hardware, advanced statistical data analysis, and presentation of results. For more information, contact Dr. A. Kaboth at

Royal Holloway, University of London will host an Open Day for Post-Graduate Research on 30th November 2016. For poster go to this link: https://www.royalholloway.ac.uk/physics/documents/pdf/prospectivestudents/pg-open-day-poster-2016.pdf
