Potential research projects include: data-taking and analysis of anisotropies in the cosmic microwave background (CMB), experimental design, data-taking and analysis for an experiment to measure the polarisation signal predicted but not yet measured from the CMB, development of a new interferometric technique using bolometric detectors for making high angular resolution observations of the CMB and high-redshift galaxies, development of new optimal data-analysis techniques for CMB experiments, development, manufacture and testing of new cryogenic detectors and coolers, theoretical studies of the CMB pattern and its relationship to the physics of the very early universe.
A good Honours degree in physics, astrophysics, mathematics, electronics or a related subject, depending on the research area.
Research council funding is available through the department, and School studentships are also available.
