Title : Towards future long baseline neutrino experiments to study CP-violation

The PhD student will participate in the sensitivity studies for future long baseline neutrino experiments and in the software development towards event reconstruction in a large-volume liquid Argon (LAr) detector. This will be applied in particular to the prototype being constructed at CERN in the framework of the WA105 project. This 6x6x6m double-phase LAr detector should be constructed and exposed to hadron beams in the forthcoming three years. The analysis of collected data will be a part of the PhD thesis work.

In parallel, the LPNHE neutrino group is also involved in the NA61/SHINE hadron production experiment at CERN which will collect more data for precise neutrino flux predictions in future long baseline neutrino experiments. A connection to this PhD thesis subject is expected in view of the global reduction of systematic uncertainties needed for sensitivity optimization. The group participates also in the on-going T2K neutrino oscillation experiment which continues to take data in neutrino and antineutrino beams with a hope to get first hints of CP-violation in the leptonic sector.
