PhD opportunities in Particle Physics at RHUL

Line: 16 to 16
  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 have recently appointed two new academic posts in this area.

  • Phenomenology programme: we are expecting to have two studentships in particle phenomenology (to be confirmed soon), on searches at the Large Hadron Collider for dark matter candidates and signatures for other new physics processes.
 Students in the experimental group spend their first three months following an intercollegiate course of lectures on advanced particle physics with students from other University of London colleges. In January of their first year they begin their 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 the first year there is a three-week summer school at RAL attended by all UK PhD students in particle physics and (group travel funds permitting) 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
