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 the IPPP. 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 experimentalists and theorists.

The main objectives of the Associateship Programme are:

  • To provide support for small workshop(s) organised by the Associate, IPPP members, and others.
  • To enhance interactions and enable new collaborations between the Associate, the community, and the IPPP.
  • To support research visits (e.g. of a week) of the Associate and/or their students to IPPP and of IPPP staff/PDRA/students to the Associate’s institution.

Up to 6 Associateships are awarded annually, and each Associateship will have a value of up to £3000, which may be spent over two years.

Applicants should send a one page (PDF format) proposal electronically to the IPPP Director Michael Spannowsky with a copy to Joanne Bentham by the closing dates indicated below. The proposal should outline the proposed programme, any workshops planned, and briefly describe how the funds will be spent.

Applications will be reviewed by the IPPP Steering Committee.

Applications are considered twice a year with closing dates for applications at the beginning of March and beginning of September each year.

 A list of past IPPP Associates is given below.
