Harvard University
Laboratory for Particle Physics and Cosmology

The Laboratory for Particle Physics and Cosmology (LPPC) at Harvard University conducts cutting-edge research in experimental particle physics and observational cosmology, and provides education for graduate and undergraduate students.

ATLAS Group invites applicants for a postdoc position


The LPPC is led by six faculty members from Harvard Physics and Astronomy Departments.

Research Projects

Energy Frontier - ATLAS

  • Search for evidences of new physics beyond the Standard Model in the highest-energy proton-(anti)proton collisions. We are involved in the ATLAS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider and the CDF Experiment at the Tevatron.

Intensity Frontier - Neutrino

  • Study of neutrino mixing, in which different flavors of neutrinos turn into each other. A neutrino beam generated at Fermilab travels 810 km to reach the MINOS and NOvA Experiments located in northern Minnesota.

Cosmic Frontier - Dark Energy

  • Investigation of the Dark Energy through surveys of distant supernovea. Our flagship project is the Large Synaptic Sky Survey.
