Location
Jesus College Oxford and Diamond Light Source

Diamond is delighted to announce it is to run a fourth synchrotron radiation school on the 22nd to the 26th September 2014. It will run on very similar lines to the very successful SR Schools in both 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. This includes hands-on practical experience of performing an experiment on several of the Diamond beamlines.

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.

As the course is always over-subscribed, all registrants will be required to complete an application for their place. Priority will be given to those people in the earliest stage of their research career and who have definite plans to use Diamond.

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED AND THE SUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS HAVE BEEN SELECTED

The SR Summer 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.
