HERCULES@Sesame: two weeks training school (26 Oct-7 Nov 2019)

HERCULES@Sesame

An HERCULES school (Higher European Research Course for Users of Large Experimental Systems)  will be organised in SESAME (Amman, Jordan) from 26 October to 7 November 2019.

The two-weeks school will train young researchers on the broad basics, techniques of synchrotron radiation and applications in the fields of Material Science, Cultural Heritage, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Biomedicine, Structural Biology and Environment.

 

The school, following the principles of the Hercules school, will include:

  • Lectures from internationally recognised experts. See the list and preliminary programme below
  • tutorials and practicals in small groups, including on SESAME beamlines

 

The following experimental techniques will be covered:

  • X-ray Absorption spectroscopy
  • Infrared spectroscopy
  • Soft X-ray spectroscopy
  • Powder and single crystal diffraction
  • Macromolecular crystallography
  • Small-angle X-ray scattering
  • X-ray imaging & tomography

Who can apply ?

  • PhD students
  • Post-doctoral fellows
  • Young researchers
  • Working in Middle East and neighbouring countries, including all SESAME members

Important dates

  • Application: Spring 2019 (TBC)
  • Confirmation of selection to participants: TBC
  • 26 October 2019: beginning of school

Sponsors & Supporting Institutions

The school is entirely funded by the OPEN-SESAME European project.
