Studentships in the Mathematical Physics of Accelerators.
Department of Physics, Lancaster University, and the Cockcroft
Institute.The mathematical physics group in the
Cockcroft Institute and the department of physics, Lancaster
University, have PhD studentships available for October
2008. These are STFC funded positions open to all UK
and EU residents.
Current research techniques
involve differential geometry, the theory of distributions,
electrodynamics, relativity, multi-particle dynamics and
relativistic plasma theory. These mathematical tools are being applied
fundamental problems in accelerator science.
students will develop their knowledge of these subjects during their
PhD both via small group graduate tutorials and personal study. They
will also participate in the Cockcroft postgraduate lecture program
which provides both broad and detailed understanding of the
physics of particle accelerators.
Institute provides the intellectual focus, educational infrastructure
and the essential scientific and technological facilities for
accelerator science and technology research and development,
which will enable UK scientists and engineers to take a major
role in innovating future tools for scientific discoveries and in
the conception, design, construction and use of the world's leading
research accelerators for the foreseeable future.
