As has been the case in previous years, it is likely that the Physics Department will support a number of bursaries, awarded on a competitive basis, to support summer research projects in the department, for undergraduates. The projects are likely to be of interest to those students wishing to continue in physics research after their degree. They are supported at a rate of 165pw, for a period of up to 7 weeks, during the summer vacation. This scheme is aimed at students that are not in their final year.

A list of projects suggested by members of staff for Summer 2010 will be put together over the next few weeks and will be available in this web page, see below. Students interested in any of these projects should contact the member of staff concerned. Students are also free to approach members of staff with a view to jointly developing other projects.

Projects to develop teaching in the Department are also eligible.

DEADLINE: Proposals for projects should be emailed by the supervisor, to Pedro Teixeira-Dias (and copied to Diego Bellini) no later than noon, on Friday 12 March 2010. The following information is required:

  • Title and Brief description of project
  • Name of supervisor
  • Name of student(s) interested in project
  • Duration of project (max. 7 weeks)

ELIGIBILITY: Summer bursaries will be awarded on a competitive basis. More advanced students will be preferred. MSci students will be preferred over BSc students. Potential PhD candidates will be preferred. Academic performance in previous examinations and coursework and attendance records will be used as award criteria, as necessary. Final year students are not eligible.

Where possible, the decisions as to which projects/students will be funded, will be made before the end of term. The number of awards will be subject to academic performance/potential of applicant, quality of project, available funds. Students will be informed of the outcome by email.

Once a project has been completed, it is expected that the students will submit a one-page report on the outcome of their summer project. The report must be signed off by the supervisor and submitted to the RRC chair at the end of the studentship. The report will be filed with the student records.

For reference, the list of projects proposed last summer is available here.

List of projects for Summer 2010 (preliminary)

For each project the following information should be provided by the prospective supervisor, by sending an email to Pedro Teixeira-Dias, copied to Diego Bellini:

  • Title and Brief description of project
  • Name of supervisor
  • Name of student(s) interested in project (if "?", interested students should contact supervisor for more information)
  • Duration of project (max. 7 weeks)

The Centre for Particle Physics at Royal Holloway, University of London (RHUL) recruits annually for students to carry out research towards the PhD degree, normally starting in mid-September. The principal recruitment period is January to March and you are strongly advised to make your recommendation then but studentships could still be available later. See below under "Additional Information" for more information about the group, contact details, funding sources and application form.

PhD studentships

The Centre for Particle Physics has a long tradition of participating in particle physics experiments and, in recent years, has expanded its research interests into the areas of Accelerator Science as part of the John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science, and particle physics phenomenology as members of the NExT Institute (New connections between Experiment and Theory). We welcome enquires from those interested in joining any of these research activities.

The main interests of the Centre for Particle Physics in these areas are:

  • ATLAS programme: analysis of the experimental data in order to search for the Higgs boson, supersymmetric particles and evidence of extra dimensions, and the physics of the top quark.

  • Trigger and Data Acquisition Systems: we have a major involvement in the ATLAS trigger and data acquisition system and are contributing to a planned upgrade. We contribute to international design work on a trigger system for a future linear collider and on generic aspects of trigger systems.

  • Accelerator Science programme: development of novel electron accelerator diagnostics, such as laser-wire beam measurement devices, resonant cavity beam position monitors and beam generated radiation monitoring. We are also involved in studies leading to the realisation of a future linear collider, and upgrades of the LHC.

  • Phenomenology programme: phenomenology of Large Hadron Collider searches for dark matter candidates and for signatures of other new physics processes. Further information can be found here.

There is very heavy overlap in the above topics and many members of the Centre contribute in more than one area.

Students in the Centre for Particle Physics spend their first three months following an intensive training programme consisting of postgraduate-level lectures in their area of research working jointly with students in other institutions. For instance, those in experimental particle physics attend courses with students from other University of London colleges, those in phenomenology with students from Southampton and Sussex and those in accelerator science with Oxford colleagues. All normally begin their research project in January of their first year. Many are likely to spend time in the exciting atmosphere of CERN or other accelerator labs during their studentship, giving the opportunity of meeting students from many other countries as well as senior particle physicists and maybe a Nobel prizewinner or two. Towards the end of their first year students attend a summer school (normally in the UK), for example experimentalists at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) Summer School and phenomenologists at the British Universities Summer School in Theoretical Elementary Particle Physics (BUSSTEPP). Most students attend a summer school outside the UK at the end of their second year.

Funding for studentships is available from a variety of sources including the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), the European Union and Royal Holloway. Click on the relevant links below for more details.

Students in our group spend their first three months following an intensive training programme consisting of postgraduate-level lectures in their area of research. For instance, students in the experimental particle physics area attend several lecture courses on advanced particle physics topics, together with students from other University of London colleges. In January of their first year they begin their research project. They are likely to spend some time in the exciting atmosphere of CERN or other accelerator labs in their first and second years giving the opportunity of meeting students from many other countries as well as senior particle physicists and maybe a Nobel prizewinner or two. At the end of their first year the students will attend a two-week UK Summer School aimed at experimental or theoretical particle physics postgraduates, as appropriate: respectively, the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) Summer School and the British Universities Summer School in Theoretical Elementary Particle Physics (BUSSTEPP). In addition, our students normally attend a summer school outside the UK at the end of the second year.

Funding for studentships from the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) is available to work in the ATLAS and Accelerator Science programmes. Funding for two studentships in the Phenomenology programme of the NExT institute is also available. Additional funding opportunities, from RHUL, may also be available; please see below.

The RHUL Centre for Particle Physics is now recruiting applicants for studentships to carry out research towards the PhD degree. Applications are sought, preferably before the end of March 2009, for entry in October 2009.

The Centre for Particle Physics has a long tradition of participating in Particle Physics experiments, and also has an Accelerator Science group (part of the John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science). At the moment we are expanding into the area of Particle Physics phenomenology: we are members of the recently created NExT Institute, and are in the process of appointing two new academic posts in this area.

The two main research areas which we are now recruiting for are the ATLAS experiment in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, and Accelerator Science research towards the development of future particle accelerators.

In brief, our group's main interests in these areas are

  • ATLAS programme: analysis of the experimental data in order to search for the Higgs boson, supersymmetric particles and evidence of extra dimensions, and the physics of the top quark. We also have a major involvement in the trigger and data acquisition system. First ATLAS data is expected already in 2009.

Funding for studentships from the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and from RHUL is available to work in these areas. In addition, funding for EU PhD candidates is also available for projects on accelerator research within the Marie-Curie DITANET network.
