17th Oxford School on Neutron Scattering
Date and Venue: 5-15 September 2022, St. Anne's College, University of Oxford.

We are very happy to be able to welcome students back at our in-person school. Please apply NOW!

Application: To apply 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 mid-night 1st June 2022. 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.

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.

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.

Fees: School fees for 2022 are £700 per residential student which includes the cost of a en-suite room during the school, breakfast and evening meals at St. Anne's College, teaching materials, drinks reception and the gala dinner. There are 50 residential places available. There are also 10 non-residential places for students who do not require local accommodation, at a school fee of £200, which includes teaching materials, drinks reception and gala dinner. Fees will be payable once the names of successful applicants have been announced.

Organisers: Victoria García Sakai, Ross Stewart and Sean Langridge (ISIS); Andrew Boothroyd (Oxford University).
