Summer School 2018


Summer School 2018


When: 30th July – 3rd August 2018

Where: University of Loughborough

Overview: Dial-a-Molecule will be running a residential Summer School focussed on the Enabling Technologies theme from 30th July to 3rd August 2018 at Loughborough.

Aimed at PhD students, the format will be a mixture of lectures, workshops and practical sessions and topics covered will include Flow Chemistry, Design of Experiments, 3D printing and Real Time Reaction Analytics. This will be a unique opportunity forPhD students to both learn about the technologies and to get hands on experience with commonly used equipment and tools, with at least half 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 25 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 form by the closing date of May 14th, 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 £50 to confirm their place.
