The University of Sussex Experimental Particle Physics group plays a critically important role in a number of experiments at the frontiers of our knowledge of particle physics, with main involvement in: the ATLAS experiment and its upgrades at the CERN Large Hadron Collider, the SNO+ neutrinoless double beta decay experiment at SNOLAB (Canada), the NOvA and DUNE neutrino oscillation experiments at Fermilab (USA), and the Neutron EDM experiment at PSI (Switzerland).
We are presently offering several fully funded studentships on these experiments available to UK and EU nationals for a September 2017 start. Funded studentships cover a tax free bursary (£14,553 per annum in 2017/18) and home/EU fees for 3.5 years. Additional financial support is provided to cover short-term and long-term travel. Interviews of shortlisted candidates will be held in February and March. There are also funding opportunities for non-EU students to work on projects in our group through a China Scholarship Council/Sussex joint scholarship (open to Chinese nationals) and the Sussex Chancellor’s International Research Scholarship (open to any nationality).

Applications are invited for a prestigious fully-funded 3 year PhD studentship in Space Instrumentation at the University of Sussex. The successful applicant will join the MicroADS mission team in the Space Research Group. MicroADS is a novel satellite attitude determination system which offers star-tracker levels of performance in a much smaller instrument. It is anticipated that MicroADS will be flown on a LEO demonstrator mission in c.2021.
Type of award
About the PhD Studentship
You will work on developing the MicroADS instrument hardware and on board instrument software, with the exact split between these activities determined by your aptitude and the instrument’s needs. Your work will include development and characterisation of the instrument optics, electronics, and interfaces with spacecraft systems. The PhD requires a strong practical/experimental background in physics and/or spacecraft engineering.
About the Space Research Group
The Space Research Group conducts fundamental and applied work in a variety of areas related to space science, spacecraft engineering, and high performance hardware for terrestrial environments. The group is particularly well known for its world-leading contributions in: X-ray spectrometers for astronomy and planetary science; e– spectrometers for space plasma physics; radioisotope microbatteries; compound semiconductor material physics; spacecraft GNC systems; and extreme environment instrumentation.
