Research Training Group: HighRR - High Resolution and High Rate Detectors

The Research Training Group High Resolution and High Rate Detectors in Nuclear and Particle Physics (HighRR) is dedicated to research and education in pure detector science; its particular emphasis is on the instrumentation of novel experiments in nuclear, particle and high energy physics. New developments in this area are not straight forward and necessitate substantial knowledge on many aspects of modern technology. The special focus of the detector research group at KIP lies in the area of triggering, fast timing detectors based on scintillators read out with Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs); the latter are developed for applications in both high energy physics and medical imaging, e.g. PET. The different detector R&D activities of the group are described here. All HighRR PhD students are also members of the Heidelberg Graduate School of Fundamental Physics (HGSFP).

There are typically two rounds of applications per year (December and May). Further information can be found on the websites of the graduate school, or you contact us:

Research Training Group: Particle Physics Beyond the Standard Model

The Research Training Group Particle Physics Beyond the Standard Model includes students from particle physics and cosmology, in both experimental and theoretical groups. The emphasis of this school in both course work and thesis topics is an interdisciplinary study across the traditional boundaries of these fields. The focus of the ATLAS group at KIP currently has strong participation in both precision SM measurements to search for new physics phenomena, such as W+jets measurements and Wgg measurements, as well as tests beyond the SM such as di-tau SUSY searches and mini-black hole searches. In addition, the projects require extensive studies of the ATLAS detector performance, especially of the jet reconstruction and calibration as well as the trigger performance. The group members are also members of the Heidelberg Graduate School of Fundamental Physics (HGSFP).

IMPRS: Precision Tests of Fundamental Symmetries

The International Max Planck Research School for Precision Tests of Fundamental Symmetries in Particle Physics, Nuclear Physics, Atomic Physics and Astroparticle  Physics at the University of Heidelberg" (IMPRS-PTFS) is a combined effort of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics (MPIK) and the University of Heidelberg. The scientific basis of the IMPRS is fundamental physics, which has the goal to identify, understand and explain the most basic laws of Nature on a broad range: low-energy neutrino and Dark Matter investigations, ultraprecise ion traps and storage rings, or with high-energy LHC physics. Both theoretical and experimental perspectives are covered in the school. The IMPRS offers a solid education in a large variety of fields of research, with particular emphasis on inter- and crossdisciplinarity. Regular seminars and workshops will further broaden the intellectual horizon of the students, giving them excellent perspectives for the future. The group members are also members of the Heidelberg Graduate School of Fundamental Physics (HGSFP).

There are two rounds of applications per year (December and May). Further information can be found on the websites of the IMPRS-PTFS, or you contact us:

Graduate Research Group "New Symmetries and Extra Dimensions"

The Heidelberg Graduate Research Group New Symmetries and Extra Dimensions unites doctoral students of the KIP ATLAS group, whose projects are devoted to searches for new physics beyond the Standard Model at the LHC. Unitl 2013, the projects were supported via scholarships of a Baden-Württemberg graduate research grant. The topics of the ATLAS data analyses are mainly Standard Model studies, jet-based signatures of extra dimensions, compositeness and supersymmetry. In addition, the projects require extensive studies of the ATLAS detector performance, especially of the jet reconstruction and calibration as well as the trigger performance. The group members are also members of the Heidelberg Graduate School of Fundamental Physics (HGSFP).
