International Institute for Accelerator Applications
Our mission is to teach, research, and lead developments in innovative accelerator technology and particle-target interactions, with applications for society in medicine, energy, industry and science
The Huddersfield International Institute for Accelerator Applications (IIAA) brings together research in accelerator science and engineering, from low energy devices in its own laboratories to the highest energy machines at sites around the world, including the LHC in Geneva and the ESS in Lund.
A core team of research staff works wih others across the school and the university on a wide range of accelerator projects including FFAGs, proton therapy, and ADSRs.
The Institute runs a Doctoral Training Centre for PhD students, with 2-3 funded studentships available each year, and will start a Master's course in 2013.
