As part of the IPPP UK phenomenology network activities, IPPP invites applications from UK-based permanent academic staff for IPPP Associateships. Associateships are awarded to individuals or small teams, and are funded by Durham University as part of the partnership agreement with STFC.
Associates are selected on the basis of scientific excellence of their proposal 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. Applications are welcomed from both theorists and experimentalists.
The main objectives of the Associateship Programme are to:
- Enhance interactions and enable new collaborations between the Associate, the Associate’s Institution and the IPPP
- Support research visits (typically of a week each time) of the Associate or their students to IPPP and of IPPP staff/PDRA/students to the Associate’s institution
The next round of Associateships will be awarded in the Autumn of 2016, for calendar 2017. The deadline for applications will be 31st August 2016.
