Job description
A PhD scholarship is available to work on dark-matter searches with neutrino telescopes, and their incorporation into combined searches for new physics via global fits. This project will involve theory calculations, programming, supercomputer work, and analysis of data from the IceCube, Super-Kamiokande and ANTARES neutrino telescopes. It will include collaboration with members of these experiments and engagement with the GAMBIT Community.

Students with a strong background in astroparticle physics or any adjacent field (e.g. particle theory, particle experiment, astrophysics, computational physics, mathematical physics, statistics, etc) are encouraged to apply.

This is an earmarked scholarship associated with Dr Pat Scott’s Future Fellowship:

Please see for further project details (search for project “The world as a neutrino telescope”), and contact Pat Scott for application instructions.

The position will remain open until a suitable candidate is found. Applicants of any nationality are welcome and encouraged to apply, as are those who would increase the diversity of backgrounds and experiences in the group. Contact: Scott, Pat (
