IPPP Associates 2017-2018
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 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
- to 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
We expect that up to 6 Associateships will be awarded in 2017-2018 starting October 2017, and each Associateship will have a value of up to £3000 per annum.
Applicants should send a one page (PDF format) proposal electronically to the IPPP Director Keith Ellis with a copy to Linda Wilkinson
by 31st August 2017. The proposal should outline the proposed research programme and briefly describe how the funds will be used
- to enhance the research of the Associate,
- to increase collaboration with the IPPP
Applications will be reviewed by the IPPP Steering Committee. The deadline for applications is 31 August 2017.
