PhD Positions in Experimental Particle and Astroparticle Physics

A limited number of funded PhD positions are available in the Experimental Particle and Astroparticle Physics group

  • Closing date: 31 Jan 2021
  • United Kingdom | King’s College London
  • Date posted: 03 Nov 2020
  • Job type: Academic: PhD/MSc
  • Disciplines: Accelerators, neutron & light sources  | Astronomy, cosmology & space science 

Applications are invited from talented and motivated students for PhD positions in the Experimental Particle and Astroparticle Physics (EPAP) group at King’s College London addressing topics in neutrino physics through the T2K, Hyper-K, SNO+ and ICECUBE experiments. The group focuses on addressing the key outstanding questions in neutrino physics, including the search for leptonic CP violation through long-baseline neutrino oscillation measurements, probing neutrino mass and nature through neutrino-less double beta decay and searches for new physics with astrophysical neutrinos. Further details of the group’s research interests and outputs are available at the EPAP group page and the group’s research portal

In addition to first-class supervision on a range of exciting PhD topics in these areas, all EPAP PhD students will receive comprehensive training through the University of London Particle Physics Postgraduate Lecture Course during their first year. 

A limited number of funded positions, which include home-student fees and a tax-free bursary with London weighting, are available. In addition, we are keen to recruit students through the Kings-China Scholarship Council (K-CSC) scheme and other international funding opportunities (see below for links). We are also very keen to encourage applications from people from groups that are currently under-represented in physics.

For more details about potential projects, please contact Dr Jeanne Wilson (, Professor Francesca di Lodovico ( or Dr Teppei Katori (
