Many research opportunities are available in elementary particle physics at Berkeley, with additional opportunities available via strong connections with LBNL. Theoretical work spans the full range of energy scales, from particle spectroscopy, perturbative QCD, and related phenomenology to studies of grand unification theories, supersymmetry, supergravity, and superstring theories, and general gauge theories of strong and electroweak interactions. Experimental activities at Fermilab and at the nearby Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) examine important aspects of electroweak symmetry breaking. CP violation, and the physics of the heavy b and t quarks. Non-accelerator experiments study neutrinos and rare processes. Detector development is being done for these projects, and in preparation for experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
