Research & Teaching

The School of Physics and Astronomy at The University of Manchester is one of the largest and most active schools of physics in the United Kingdom. It includes the Schuster Laboratory on the campus and the Jodrell Bank Observatory.

Our Experimental Particle Physicists are members of several major international collaborations working at facilities in both Europe and the United States. Three of these collaborations, BaBar, and NEMO-III are currently taking data, whilst a fourth, ATLAS, is being constructed and will begin operation in 2008. The group is also active in SuperNemo, CALICE, e-Science and in accelerator physics. We have also been members of OPAL and H1.

Our Theoretical Particle Physicists have world-leading expertise in Phenomenology at high-energy colliders in Quantum Chromodynamics, Neutrino and Higgs Physics, CP violation, Supersymmetry and String Phenomenology and in the Physics of the Early Universe. Our projects are often focussed on aspects of theoretical physics which can be tested in ongoing or future experiments and we have strong links with the CERN Theory Division.
