UROP in Experimental High Energy Physics

We offer a small number of UROP projects per year in a variety of areas, working on our ongoing experiments in HEP. These will be funded (at a rate of £200/week) and are mainly aimed at summer vacation placements for students in their penultimate or final year.

The work involved is very dependent on which experiment the placement is associated with. Most tend to include a significant amount of computing, but can also involve some aspects of data visualisation, hardware development, data acquisition, experimental operations and machine learning.

The actual projects change from year to year and applications are handled through a pooled system.


Applications will be open from 1 October until 31 January every year. Once you have submitted an application, you should expect to hear from the Group by the end of February.

If you have any further queries please email Paula Consiglio and Dion Kordopati on fundamental@imperial.ac.uk.

PLEASE NOTE, the selection process is still underway for those who applied for a UROP placment for the Summer of 2021, We apologise for the delay ,but we will be in touch to let you know if you have been successful or not. Thank you for your patience
