The aim of this programme is to support particle physics phenomenology research in the UK. The Associateships are awarded on the basis of scientific excellence bearing in mind the need to balance activity in different areas of phenomenological research including beyond the standard model physics, electroweak and Higgs physics, flavour physics, model building, Monte Carlo simulations, neutrino physics, particle astrophysics and strong interactions.
