Nuclear and Hadron Physics Research
The Nuclear and Hadron Physics group's fundamental research activities are focussed upon gaining insight into the structure of matter and understanding the processes of Quantum Chromodynamics (strong interaction). Our group is involved at the highest level of international research into hadronic and nuclear physics and in development of the latest detector technologies and analysis techniques for use in experiments.
We have a PhD vacancy for UK students focusing on experiments studying nucleon and hadron structure and which will be performed at Jefferson Lab (USA). These experiments will probe the structure of matter, and are highly challenging and interesting measurements to carry out due to the high beam luminosities used and resulting high particle rates in the detectors. The experiments are currently due to start running in Autumn 2020 and the PhD project therefore offers an exciting chance to get involved in several different aspects of this experimental program.
