The School of Physics and Astronomy at Queen Mary, University of London has been awarded funding for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant position in the CRST.
We have started a series of Maths/Physics seminars at the interfaces of theoretical physics with mathematics.
The Nobel Prize in Physics 2013 was awarded jointly to Francois Englert and Peter Higgs, "for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles and which recently was confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider".
We are very pleased to announce that CRST will welcome two new academic members of staff from October 2013: Dr Constantinos Papageorgakis (Rutgers), who will join the group as a Royal Society University Research Fellow, and Dr Donovan Young (NORDITA), who will take on a three-year Lectureship in CRST.
We are very happy to announce that three new PhD students will join our group in the next academic year: Edward Hughes and Zachary Kenton, from Cambridge University, and Paolo Mattioli, from Bologna University.
On Wednesday 27 February, ten PhD students from QM competed in the annual Junk the Jargon competition. Junk the Jargon challenges participants to communicate their research topic in an engaging and fun way to a broad audience - in just three minutes.
The School of Physics and Astronomy is pleased to announced that it has been awarded Juno Practitioner status by the Institute of Physics. The aim of Juno is to recognise and reward departments that can demonstrate they have taken action to address the under-representation of women in university physics and to encourage
The deadline for applying for a PhD studentship in the Centre for Research in String Theory is 31 January 2013. If you intend to apply, please follow the instructions here. Reference letters should reach us by the deadline.
