This theory group is a joint initiative of the Departments of
Physics and Astronomy and of the School of Mathematics and Statistics.
It is supported by the
University of Sheffield,
We are a member of the
Lancaster-Manchester-Sheffield Consortium for Fundamental Physics.
Our main research interests and activities include:
astrophysics: particle models for dark matter and prospects for its
detection, formation and structure of dark matter halos
- Early Universe and brane world cosmology,
inflation, particle relics
- Dark energy: cosmological consequences and observational constraints on diverse models
- Quantum gravity, black holes, quantum field theory
in curved space
theory beyond the Standard Model, supersymmetry, grand and string
unification, SUSY signatures in rare processes and in collider searches.
STFC and EPSRC PhD studentships may be available for
projects in the above areas, see the PhD projects page for further information.
We do not currently have any postdoctoral positions available. Please contact
us if you are interested in applying for a fellowship (e.g. STFC or EPSRC)
to be hosted at Sheffield.
