The Oxford LHCb group is proud to attract some of the best students and professional researchers. If you feel that the Oxford group could be right for your scholarly or research ambitions, please get in touch!

Individual fellowships

If you are interested in consolidating your career pursuing heavy flavour research at Oxford, we would be delighted to discuss your ideas at anytime. We have excellent success with Royal Society University Fellowships, Dorothy Hodgkins Fellowships, 1851 Fellowships, Ernst Rutherford Fellowships, STFC Postdoctoral Fellowships as well as successful non-faculty applications to the European Research Council.

Postdoctoral research associateships

The backbone of the group is our first-class team of professional researchers. Typically we have two to four postdocs, working with us for periods of up to four years (contract dependent). Any vacancies will be posted here.

Doctorate Studentships

We are eager to attract great candidates for doctoral studies. Students in the group benefit from Oxford's leading role in both detector and physics activities. Students also gain from Oxford's comprehensive graduate lecture course in the first year, with subsequent years devoted entirely to research. There will be opportunity for a long term attachment at CERN. Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Neville Harnew to discuss possibilities. General information on applying for graduate studentships can be found on the Oxford particle physics web pages.

Masters projects

Each year we propose one or two M.Phys project for the fourth year Oxford undergraduates. We put in a lot of care to ensure these projects are unique and timely so that they provide first class research exposure.

Occasionally, we are happy to host Masters projects from foreign institutes where synergy with the Oxford group's research programme is demonstrated.

Summer projects

Usually, one summer internship will be offered in our group and will be advertised on the particle physics internships page.
