"The Science Employer Panel brings students and professionals together for an in-depth discussion of the job prospects and internship opportunities available to science graduates. Students get direct access to insider information about a variety of science industries, while panelists get a chance to meet their future employees and share about why their business is a great place to work. Connections made at the Science Employer Panel start new careers, and help drive Utah’s economic engine."
Our research covers a wide spectrum of activities, from fundamental physics to technological applications. Our activities are organised into five Research Groups and University Research Centres:
Most research students who ‘do a PhD’ register in the first instance as probationer for the degree of PhD. Candidates are expected to carry out supervised research at the leading edge of their chosen subject, which must then be written up as a substantial thesis.
The confirmation of the PhD programme (and the end of the probationary period) is subject to students passing an assessment process, which normally involves submission of written work and on oral examination which usually takes place 12 months after the initial registration.
We also have dedicated research officers managing our Microscopy and Analysis Suite (MAS) and the Chemical Characterisation and Analysis Facility (CCAF).
The final stage of the PhD degree is the oral or viva voce examination, in which students are required to defend the thesis to a Board of Examiners.
We have a thriving research programme, with 28 academic staff and over 80 postdoctoral researchers, PhD students and research visitors, drawn from the UK and overseas. Our research has a high international profile, in keeping with the University's position as a leading research institution in the United Kingdom.
Our recent Physics graduates have gone on to further research or teaching in the UK, Europe, China and Japan and research posts in the UK, Germany, Japan and South Africa. Employers include the Met Office and Fianium in the UK

From political elections to personal finance to public policy, probability affects us all. Probability is also full of surprises. In this talk, we will explain several paradoxes and big mistakes in applications of probability to everyday life. Along the way, we will try to correct our (often faulty) intuition.
