Opportunities

Our group offers the possibility to work on PhD theses in several fields, especially in a wide range of topics covering our main expertise in high-energy astroparticle physics.

Some example of PhD theses currently under development and recently finished are reported in the following. 

 Ongoing phD Theses 

- Francesco Lucarelli: Neutrino multi-flare time-dependent point-source searches with IceCube

- Luis David Medina Miranda: Low level characterisation of scintillating fibres on the SciFi detector for the µ3e experiment. Development of a SiPM camera for large size gamma-ray telescopes
