LECTURESHIP in Experimental Particle Physics

The University of Manchester invites applications for a new Lectureship in Experimental Particle Physics. Details can be found here

ATLAS at Manchester

The ATLAS Experiment

The ATLAS detecter at CERN is designed to take full advantage of the very high energy (14TeV), high luminosity (1034cm-2s-1) proton-proton collisions of the LHC. ATLAS will be able to study the properties of the Higgs boson in a range of decay modes, or else put very strict limits on its existence. ATLAS will also be sensitive to other exotic phenomena, such as supersymmetry, extra dimensions, quark compositeness, and more. Many standard model parameters like the mass of the top quark will be measured to very high precision thanks to the enormous numbers produced.

Manchester Contributions

The Manchester group is making important contributions to the ATLAS experiment:
