Welcome to the Particle Physics Experiment (PPE) Research Group

We are currently accepting applications for PhD positions starting in September/October 2023.  For more information see Postgraduate Opportunities and Current PhD Projects; for full consideration apply by 31st January 2023.

New: an industrial CASE project on hybrid pixel detectors has been added to our list of studentships starting September/October 2023; see Current PhD Projects.

The experimental particle physics group at the University of Glasgow is studying the fundamental constituents of matter, and their interactions. Our activities are carried out in collaboration with international laboratories such as CERN, where we participate in experimental collaborations and analyse large datasets in search of new phenomena. To further these studies the group is developing future detector technologies for experimentation, and computer grids for analysis of data.

The group is comprised of 10 academics, around 30 research associates, technicians and engineering staff, around 30 postgraduate students, and two group administrators. For contact details, see Members or Contact us.
