ISIS news, events, instrument updates and information on how to apply for beamtime for users who wish to submit a proposal in the next round.
This call for proposals covers beamtime that will be allocated from February 2017 to September 2017.
TOSCA will be open for experimental proposals to be submitted in this October’s proposal round, after previously not accepting proposals in April 2016 due to the installation of the neutron guide.
LOQ has now been equipped with a beamstop-mounted transmission monitor (cf. SANS2D), meaning that for most samples it will now be possible to measure scattering patterns and transmission data simultaneously. For a typical sample changer experiment it is anticipated this will ‘save’ 2 hours beam time each day.
ISIS Facility Development Studentship call
A call is now open for ISIS Facility Development Studentships. The deadline for proposals is 16 October 2016.
ISIS has available a limited number of 50%-funded studentships for UK users to run from October 2017. A full description of this studentship scheme plus instructions on how to apply is available on the ISIS
A call is now open for post-doctoral fellowship applications under the Rutherford International Fellowship Programme run by STFC and Diamond Light Source.
Researchers who have a PhD or at least four years equivalent research experience, and who have not worked in the UK for more than 12 months in the past 3 years, are eligible to apply for a Fellowship. Fellowships enable a researcher to spend two years within an STFC department (including the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source) or at the Diamond Light Source, pursuing a research project in collaboration with the host department.
Around 12 Fellowships are available. The closing date for applications is 14 October 2016. Full details of the programme and how to apply can be found on the STFC website.
