PhD project: Rare kaon decays
In the Standard Model, kaons are extremely unlikely to decay through a flavour-changing neutral current. Therefore these channels are particularly interesting to search for new physics. Such decays are soon to be observed at the NA62 experiment at CERN and it is crucial to strengthen our theoretical prediction for these decay rates. This project aims at performing fully non-perturbative calculation of such decay rate using lattice simulations.
This project is supported by the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 757646 "Search for new physics through lattice simulations". Through this funding there is limited support for a non-EU scholarship specifically for this project.
The project supervisors welcome informal enquiries about this project.
