The EPP group currently has a limited number of funded PhD positions. We also welcome applications from students with their own funding on all of our research programmes.
Please contact Professor Iain Bertram for details.
Lancaster PhD Programme
Our PhD projects all last for three and a half years with research on one of the experiments we are associated with. During the first nine months of your PhD, you will take a series of academic courses to prepare you for your research project. You will also attend the UK High Energy Physics Summer school where you have the opportunity to get to know other PhD students studying particle physics in the UK. After completing your academic training, you will have the opportunity to spend time at one of the international labs that we are associated with (e.g. CERN, Fermilab) where you will carry out your research under the supervision of members of the Lancaster group and our international collaborators. You will participate in the running of the experiment and have the opportunity to analyse data where you can learn to use mathematical modelling methods and applying probability theory. You will also work with state of the art computing facilities including the world’s largest distributed computing and storage system. By working in a multinational science environment, you will also have the opportunity to develop your ‘soft’ skills in presentation, scientific writing, project management and time management.
