28th July - 10th August 2019
The Travelling Seminar 2019 will take ca. 12 German and ca. 12 Russian students on a summer school on the topic of Nanomaterials and Large Scale Research Centers'. Together with 4 professors from Russia and Germany, we will travel to Moscow, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk and Lake Baikal by Transiberian Railway, plane and bus.
Application deadline: 15th March 2019
The content of the summer school is about
- Physics and chemistry of nanomaterials, synthesis and characterization
- X-ray-and neutron scattering.
The overall aim is to give an introduction and show the application of scattering methods (X-ray, neutrons, XRD, PDF, SAXS, SANS, TEM, XAS, many more) to the field of nanomaterials.
All accomodation and travel is covered: for Germans the round tour from the departure airport in Germany; for Russians from Irkutsk to the departure airport in Moscow. Details on this will be revealed upon the selection of participants.
In your applications, please include a CV as well as a motivation letter for participation (in English) accompanied by a prospective title of your talk.
Applications of German applicants should be directed to Prof. Mirjiam Zobel: mirijam.zobel[at]uni-bayreuth.de
