ISIS Neutron Training Course 2018

Date 27. February 2018 - 08. March 2018


Didcot, UK


The annual ISIS Practical Neutron Training Course is aimed at PhD and post-doctoral researchers who have little or no experience of neutron scattering, but whose future research program aims to make use of neutron scattering techniques at ISIS.

The course runs annually for 10 days at ISIS and takes around 35 students.

We stress that this is a hand-on course using the ISIS neutron instruments aimed at complete beginners to neutron scattering.

Registration is via the form in the link below and will close on November 30th, 2017

Outline of Course

The course includes accommodation at Cosener’s House in Abingdon, and travel expenses (within the UK) – and is free to participating students

Selection criteria for applications to the Neutron Training Course

The number of applications to attend the Neutron Training Course has always exceeded the number of places available on the course, and hence it has been necessary to have a selection procedure for allocating the places. One ISIS representative for each of the three modules attends a selection meeting together with one external ISIS user. The criteria used in making the selection are as follows:

In the assessment of applications, the statements submitted by the applicant and their supervisor carry the greatest weight, and so we would encourage applicants to ensure that they submit a strong statement emphasising the significance of neutron scattering in their research. In the event of a dispute concerning the outcome of the selection procedure, an ombudsman who has no involvement in the current course will be appointed.
