IPPP Associateships 2011/12
May 24, 2011; Valentin Khoze
The Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology (IPPP) is inviting applications from UK-based
academic permanent staff to hold an IPPP Associateship from 1 October 2011. Each Associateship will
have a value of £4000 per annum and is funded by Durham University, through the IPPP.
The aim of this programme is to support particle physics phenomenology research in the UK.
The Associateships will be awarded to individuals or small teams to support their research
programme. For example, the funds could be used for visits of the Associate or their students to
IPPP, IPPP staff/PDRA/student visits to the Associate's institution, travel of Associate or their
students to conferences, visitors to the Associate's institution, partial teaching buy-outs to
provide time to collaborate with IPPP staff, etc.
The Associateships will be 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. Applications are
welcomed from both theorists and experimentalists. Priority will be given to projects which are
either enabled, or significantly enhanced, by the award of the Associateship. It is expected that
an Associateship will lead to enhanced interactions and enable new collaborations between the
Associate, the Associate's Institution and the IPPP. You are strongly encouraged to discuss your
application with the members of the IPPP you plan to collaborate with before submission.
Associates will be expected to contribute to the IPPP workshop programme.
We expect to award up to 10 Associateships for a one year period commencing 1 October
