Event Name

Diamond Synchrotron Radiation School

Start Date 19th Sep 2016
End Date 24th Sep 2016

Diamond is delighted to announce it is to run a fifth synchrotron radiation school from the 19th to the 23rd September 2016. 

It will run on very similar lines to the very successful SR Schools in 2014, 2012 and 2010 with the aim being to provide postgraduate students and post-doctoral researchers, who have little experience of SR, a broad-based introduction to many of the different types of experiments conducted using SR. It is largely aimed at physical scientists, but life scientists are welcome to apply. 
The school gives attendees the opportunity to obtain hands-on practical experience of performing an experiment on several of the Diamond beamlines. At least 14 beamlines will be participating in the school.
The school will be co-located at Diamond and Jesus College, Oxford, with participants staying in Oxford.
The format of the school will be 2 days of lectures on SR methods, 2 days of experiments on the Diamond beamlines and on the final day there will be a symposium with 5 leading synchrotron practitioners talking about some of their research.
The course is always over-subscribed, thus all registrants are required to complete an application form.  
Priority will be given to those people in the earliest stage of their research career and who have definite plans to use Diamond. 
The strength of the application and the statement from the applicant's referee are crucial to Diamond in selecting attendees for the course. 
Given the expected over-subscription, registrants are expected to attend the entire course, thus if you apply please ensure you are available for the whole week.
Applications for the course will close on 25th May 2016. It is expected that applicants will be notified if they have obtained a place within 2 weeks of that date.
The SR School is free to attend and all accommodation and meals are provided free for the duration of the course. Students will need to fund their own travel and transport to the course.
