Summer School 2019

Dial-a-Molecule Summer School 2019

When: 29th July – 2nd August, 2019

Where: Loughborough University

Overview:

Dial-a-Molecule will be running the second edition of their highly popular residential Summer School focussed on the Enabling Technologies theme from 29th July to 2nd August 2019 at Loughborough. Aimed at PhD students, the format will be a mixture of lectures, workshops and practical sessions and topics covered will include

  • Design of Experiments
  • Flow Chemistry
  • Real Time Reaction Analytics
  • 3D printing
  • Novel Reactor Technologies

This is a unique opportunity forPhD students to both learn about the technologies and to get hands on experience with commonly used equipment and tools, with much of the time being lab-based. Attendees will have the chance to give short presentations on their own research. Course presenters will be in residence, allowing ample opportunity for informal discussions.

The school is intended for PhD students at the end of their 1stor 2ndyear of study. We will also consider other applications e.g. from students further through their studies or from post-docs.  There are 24 places available; we expect demand to be high and we want to make sure we have a good balance of interests amongst our attendees. Therefore we ask interested students to submit a short application on the attached Application form DaM Summer School 2019 form by the closing date of May 10th, 5pm. Applications will be assessed and applicants will be notified of the outcome within 4 weeks of submission.

The Network will fund 4 nights’ accommodation and all meals for each delegate, plus travel costs up to a maximum of £100.  Successful applicants will be required to pay a registration fee of £100 to confirm their place.

We are considering making some additional spaces available to industry delegates. Please contact dialamol@soton.ac.ukif you are interested in this opportunity
