Research activity

The construction of the JUNO detector, the first multi-kton liquid scintillator detector ever built, will be completed at the end of 2023. The main physics goal is the determination of the neutrino mass hierarchy, one of the key open questions in present-day neutrino physics. However, thanks to a large target mass of 20 kton and an excellent energy resolution of 3% at 1 MeV, it also has a vast physics potential in the field of astroparticle physics, including solar, geo, atmospheric, and supernovae neutrinos. The student will focus on the detection of anti-neutrinos, leading to the measurement of geo-neutrinos with world-leading precision and determination of the neutrino mass ordering. Analysis of the first JUNO data and understanding of the detector performance, including the responce function, background levels and calibration, will be an integral part of this work.
