02. September 2019 - 13. September 2019 16th Oxford School on Neutron Scattering
Location

St Anne’s College, Oxford, UK

Description

About the School: The school is intended primarily for scientists, student and postdoctoral researchers, who are new to the field of neutron scattering. It provides an excellent introduction to the field, which is developed through to its application in contemporary research. Lectures and tutorials covering all aspects of the theory and practice of a variety of neutron scattering techniques will be given by international experts. Students will gain a comprehensive grounding in modern techniques and applications at both steady state and pulsed neutron sources and have the opportunity to hear about the latest research being carried out with the technique. The school has its origins in 1966,as the first one of its kind, and many famous neutron practitioners have attended the schools of the past 50 years.

Programme: The first week of the school introduces students to the core concepts of neutron scattering, neutron sources and instrumentation, neutron diffraction and spectroscopy. The second week splits tuition into three focused science areas, physics, chemistry and soft/bio, and provides lectures on neutron techniques and concepts which are most relevant to each area. Each lecture will be accompanied by a tutorial session. The students will be asked to make short presentations to their peers about their current research projects and work in pairs to write a beamtime proposal. The students will also have the opportunity to visit the ISIS Pulsed Neutron and Muon Facility in Didcot, and to attend a number of evening lectures from prestigious names from the neutron community. In addition, this year are providing an option maths refresher for those students who may want it.

Application: To apply for the school you will need to submit both a personal statement and a statement from your academic supervisor that will be used in the selection process. Applications should arrive no later than the 12th May 2019. The course is normally highly oversubscribed, so we encourage applicants to apply in plenty of time, as late applications will not be accepted. Applicants are selected for the course based on their requirements for neutron scattering techniques as part of their present and future research activities. Applicants will be notified shortly after of the outcome of their application. The school is open to all applicants worldwide.

July
15. July 2019 - 19. July 2019 Neutrons for Membrane Biophysics School
Location

Garching bei München, Germany

Description

Supported by SINE2020

It is our pleasure to invite you to the “Neutrons for membrane biophysics” school that will take place in Garching (close to Munich) between the 15th and 19th of July. The event will focus on the use of neutrons and molecular deuteration to enable early career researchers to provide fresh insight into problems in membrane biophysics. The workshop’s aims are to give: a practical background in the design of experiments (including utilisation of molecular deuteration); preparation of samples; successful execution of a measurement program (with hands on experiments at two instruments of the FRM II reactor); and the analysis of data. We will introduce software packages suitable for the analysis of data as well as explore the exciting possibilities of directly comparing molecular dynamics simulations with neutron scattering data. The target audience is early career researchers, mainly PhD students and postdoctoral fellows, working with biophysical problems involving model membranes.

Lectures will cover the following areas:

- Small angle neutron scattering (SANS) – Neutron reflectometry – Grazing incidence small angle neutron scattering (GISANS) – Membrane lamellar diffraction – Molecular deuteration – Molecular dynamics

List of lecturers:

- Dr. Anna Leung (ESS) – Dr. Selma Maric (Univ. Malmo) – Dr. Alexandros Koutsioumpas (JCNS @ MLZ) – Dr. Sebastian Jaksch (JCNS) – Dr. François Boué (INRA – AgroParisTech – Univ. Paris Saclay) – Dr. Robert Georgii (TUM) – Dr. Chris Garvey (Univ. Malmo, LINX ) – Dr. Thomas Hauss (HZB) – Dr. Alan Mark (Univ. Queensland)

13. May 2019 - 17. May 2019 Joint French-Swedish school on X-rays and Neutrons techniques for the study of functional materials for energy
Location

Lund, Sweden

Description

This advanced school on X-rays and Neutrons techniques for the study of functional materials for energy is jointly organized by Swedish and French universities and research organisms.

Materials for the production, processing, storage or transportation of energy are essential components for current societal challenges. Knowledge of structural organization and dynamics at the atomic scale is therefore an essential prerequisite for the study of these materials, and is based, not exclusively but largely, on the use of short-wave radiation, neutrons or X-rays. Thus, an important aspect of the proposed school is to emphasize the complementarity between similar techniques based on one or the other of the radiations, too often ignored.
