SNSS Seminar Series, starting 17 November, on Neutron Imaging
The Swedish neutron scattering society (SNSS) is starting a seminar series on different topics. The plan is to have two hours of presentations every three month and address areas of research, which are expected to be possible as soon as the ESS starts. The first seminar will be on neutron imaging and take place on 17 November, at 13:00-15:00 hrs. The program and abstracts are attached below.
We are looking for new PhD-students to join us!
The new SwedNess projects
Congratulations to the 20 PhD-projects that received funding for SwedNess II.
Symposium: Photon and Neutron Science in the Baltic Sea Region
The Symposium will take place within the framework of the INTERREG Baltic Science Network project „BSN_Powerhouse“ as the first step of an innovative 3-step approach called LaunchPad designed for facilitating research cooperation between the researchers, research infrastructures and industry in the field of Photon and Neutron Science.
The Swedish Neutron Week 2021
We are sad to a announce that the Swedish Neutron Week 2020 has been postponed once again due to the corona virus.
New dates will be:
May 3-6, 2021
The industry day will be May 5.
Career day will be May 5-6.
The event is jointly arranged by SNSS, SwedNess, and Linköping University. www.neutronweek.se
SwedNess receives extended funding from SSF
The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF) has decided to extend the funding of the SwedNess research school by 100 million SEK until 2025.
The funding ensures a five-year extention of the research school and will be used to finance 20 new doctoral projects within SwedNess, according to the director Martin Häggblad Sahlberg.
An interview with director Martin Häggblad Sahlberg can be found on Uppsala University's staff portal (in Swedish).
More information regarding the funding of SwedNess can be found on the SSF website.
Imaging/Tomography, 23-26 March, 2020, at Lund University
The objectives of this doctoral-level course are to develop awareness and understanding of different neutron imaging methods and their possible applications in different areas of research. Students should thus be able to make more effective use of neutron imaging in research by identification of the best methods, understanding the strengths of different methods/facilities and understanding the importance and key aspects of data analysis. Students will also gain insight into the future possibilities in neutron imaging, e.g., at ESS.
The course is open to doctoral students, postdocs and researchers. Preference will be given to doctoral students, and in particular those in the SWEDNESS program. Acceptance to the course will be given at the end of February. Students wishing to gain course credits towards their PhD degree will be expected to submit follow-up course work that, together with the lectures, will amount to 3 ECTS. There is no charge to attend the course, which is organised in collaboration between SwedNess and LINXS (www.linxs.se).
SAKURA, New mobility programme
To strengthen scientific collaboration between Sweden and Japan, the Swedish Research Council (VR) decided to fund and launch SAKURA, a new mobility programme focusing on neutron research and activities of ESS and J-PARC in particular. Personnel working at the two neutron sources as well as researchers affiliated with Swedish and Japanese universities are welcome to apply for funding by 13 October 2019.
Note that students are not eligible (but please forward to people you think could be interested) for this grant, however, technical/administrative staff could be.
