condensed matter and structural biology.
Application deadline: March 20, 2006
Further information and online registration may be found at
The school will focus on outstanding issues in soft matter and structural
biology where neutrons make fundamental contributions. It will provide an
overview of and training in neutron scattering in soft condensed matter and
structural biology, including the basics of neutron scattering diffraction
and reflection, neutron production; small-angle neutron scattering,
reflectometry, diffraction on thermal and cold neutron instruments;
experimental methods, data reduction and analysis techniques; and hands-on
The school is intended primarily for Ph.D. graduate students in the
physical, chemical or biological sciences or postdoctoral researchers.
Students should have a basic introduction in scattering or diffraction by
successfully completing an appropriate course in physics, physical chemistry
or biophysical chemistry.
