Particle Physics PhD opportunities at RHUL

Every year the RHUL Particle Physics group recruits several students for research towards the degree of PhD in the projects covered by our research interests. At present the Centre for Particle Physics at RHUL has a major research involvement in the ATLAS experiment, at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, and in research towards the development of future accelerators.

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 the studentships is provided by e.g. the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) or RHUL. Other sources of funding, targeted at specific research projects, may also be available. Applications to our PhD programme are open typically from January to March, usually for entry the following October. More specific details about the opportunities available for entry in October 2009 will be posted here at a later date.
