Durham University was awarded one of the STFC Centres for Doctoral Training in Data-Intensive Science (DDIS), for a cohort of 15 students to take up their four-year PhD project in October 2017. Today we welcomed the DDIS students to their journey. IPPP will host six of these students, to work on a joint project to use current and future data from experiments to constrain new physics models.

As an Assistant Professor in one of the UK’s very best Physics departments, you will be based in the internationally recognised Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology. Housed in three floors of the purpose-built Ogden Centre, the Institute is the nation’s national centre for Phenomenology. You will find it an inspiring place to work. Here, you will produce exceptional research in particle physics phenomenology, while providing outstanding research-led and small group teaching and forging strong links with experimental groups. We are particularly keen to hear from you if you have expertise in Neutrino physics, Beyond-the-Standard model physics, or both. Read More and Apply Here
