I just have been accepted in Stanford and I am looking for the current projects in particle physics in the university. I have looked on their website and have found that four faculty members do research in experimental particle physics but almost only in astroparticles or neutrino physics. On the SLAC website, I have read that SLAC is involved in many various projects, like ATLAS or the ILC as well as GLAST, but I don't quite understand the relations between the lab and the university. Is it possible to work in a group directed by a researcher of the SLAC who is not a faculty member? Next year, would it be opportunities for new students to be involved in international projects like ATLAS?
Thank you very much
