UROP in Experimental High Energy Physics

We offer a small number of UROP projects per year in a variety of areas, working on our ongoing experiments in HEP. These will be funded (at a rate of £200/week) and are mainly aimed at summer vacation placements for students in their penultimate or final year.

The work involved is very dependent on which experiment the placement is associated with. Most tend to include a significant amount of computing, but can also involve some aspects of data visualisation, hardware development, data acquisition, experimental operations and machine learning.

The actual projects change from year to year and applications are handled through a pooled system. If you would like to be considered for a UROP placement in the group, please send a short (maximum one side) CV and the dates when you would be available to Dion Kordopati (d.kordopati@imperial.ac.uk) before the end of January.

The CV should include your name, year of study, a list of any relevant courses you have taken, and a description of any previous research experience. You may also wish to give an indication of your interests with regard to the experiments the group is involved in.

Due to the large number of enquiries expected, we will not be able to send an acknowledgement individually. If your application is taken up by a member of the group, you will be contacted directly by the end of February.
