Interested in joining us for a PhD?

Fully-funded PhD positions are offered each year. Currently, I am offering projects on a) sterile neutrino searches at the Fermilab SBN project, b) cross-section measurements at the SBND experiment at Fermilab, and c) on neutrino interaction phenomenology, MC event generator development and global analyses of neutrino scattering data. Potential PhD projects are listed below. Several MPhys and BSc projects are also available. I am happy to discuss other possibilities too.

PhD thesis topics offered:
