RHIP Group at UT Austin

Relativistic Heavy Ion Physics

Information for New Graduate Students





The UT Relativistic Heavy Ion Physics group is presently searching for outstanding graduate students who are interested in conducting experimental physics research at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) in New York or at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.

Following the required course work and admission to Ph.D. candidacy, the student may have the option of conducting research on-site at the LHC, at RHIC or here at UT in Austin.  Students have the option of working on the STAR experiment or the ALICE experiment involving the analysis of STAR and ALICE data and the associated physics research as part of his/her Ph.D. thesis, or working on hardware construction and software development (firmware, simulations, etc.) for either experiment, specifically with relation to particle detectors.
