Student support for joint Astro-Particle, Radio Astronomy and Collider Particle Physics research

The Wits Centre for Astrophysics and the Institute for Collider Particle Physics are developing joint projects to understand anomalies in Astro-Physics, the Large Hadron Collider and other experiments. Projects revolve around the study of Dark Matter, additional Bosons and other degrees of freedom that can can give a compact explanation to the above mentioned anomalies, while providing predictions for the SKA, CTA and future collider facilities around the world. Projects include the use of computational and Artificial Intelligence techniques. 

The student support comprises a bursary and travel funding. 

Prospective candidates should send an application package comprised of a letter of motivation, CV and transcripts, before February 10th 2020.
