If you are in the second year of your undergraduate degree or above and would like to work with me on a research project during the summer, you are welcome to apply to our Summer Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (UROP) and select me as a potential supervisor.
The range of projects I may offer varies between more formal investigations (e.g. on properties of scattering amplitudes in quantum field theory) and more phenomenological ones (see e.g. https://arxiv.org/abs/2306.07314 or https://arxiv.org/abs/2101.06068, which both started as summer projects). Strong mathematical foundations and a good knowledge of quantum mechanics are a must. At least some computer skills are also typically required.
Details of the UROP differ slightly from year to year, and are/will be posted here. Usually, the deadline for applications is late February/early March and successful candidates are notified in April. The project will typically last 8-10 weeks, beginning on or around July 1st. The duration may be adjusted to be shorter or longer, or to accommodate summer travel. Typically we are able to offer a 30-hour working week paid at the living-wage rate.
On top of working on a self-contained research project within my group, you would also be encouraged to participate in the Department's life, joining researchers for coffee breaks, discussions and seminars.
Unfortunately, at the moment I am not offering any summer internship outside the UROP.
