The University of Sussex in the UK invites applications for the PhD Studentship on the ATLAS experiment (2018). A fully funded PhD studentship is available to join the Sussex team working on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. The student will work under the main supervision of Prof Antonella De Santo, who is also the Sussex ATLAS team leader.
The project is to work on the search for Supersymmetry (SUSY) using ATLAS Run-2 data, focusing on multileptonic SUSY signals, and to contribute to the design of future physics analyses in view of the high-luminosity Large Hadron Collider upgrade. The student will also spend a fraction of their time on technical tasks that are well aligned with Sussex’s institutional responsibility on the ATLAS trigger, also in view of future trigger upgrades, and participate in ATLAS experimental operations.
There are also funding opportunities for exceptional non-EU students to work on projects in our group.
Worth of Award
- Funded studentships cover a tax-free bursary (£14,553 per annum in 2017/18) and home/EU fees for 3.5 years.
- Additional financial support is provided to cover short-term and long-term travel.
- Interviews of shortlisted candidates will be held in February and March.
- You should have a physics or related degree,
- or be due to graduate before September 2018.
How to Apply
- Apply through the Sussex on-line system
- Please state in the Finance section of the online form that you are applying for STFC/MPS EPP studentships (UK and EU nationals), or the relevant scholarship for non-EU nationals.
- Applications should include a CV, as well as transcripts of marks obtained on your degree(s) and the names and contact details of two academic referees. Please also include an overview of why you are suitable for this position and your reasons for applying.
