CMPCity 2015

Dear Colleague
We are pleased to announce the sixth summer programme, ‘Condensed Matter Physics in the City 2015’ which will take place in London on 22 June – 3 July 2015.  Further details can be found on our website.

The programme has been organised by the Hubbard Theory Consortium and sponsored by SEPnet and by ICAM.

This summer’s programme will have a special emphasis on spin, orbitally and topologically entangled quantum states. The programme will include international keynote speakers for each week in addition to presentations by participants. Please register here if you would like to attend or to give a presentation. We would particularly encourage PhD students and postdocs to present their ongoing work. We also have some limited financial support available for students from ICAM nodes across the globe.

Please feel free to forward this announcement to anyone you believe may be interested.

Kind regards,
Giovanni Sordi

Condensed Matter in the City 2014

Dear Colleague

We are pleased to announce the fifth summer programme, “Condensed Matter Physics in the City 2014” which will take place in London on 2-20 June 2014.  Further details can be found on our webpage.

The programme has been organised by the Hubbard Theory Consortium and sponsored by SEPnet and by ICAM.

Topics covered by this summer’s programme include: emergent electrodynamics, intertwined electronic and atomic order, and collective dynamics in systems with emergent symmetries.  The programme will include international keynote speakers for each week in addition to presentations by participants.  Please register here if you would like to attend or to give a presentation.  We would particularly encourage PhD students and postdocs to present their ongoing work. We also have some limited financial support available for students from ICAM nodes across the globe.

Please feel free to forward this announcement to anyone you believe may be interested.

Pioneering New Uses of Large Facilities (experiment and theory)

January 9, 2012 No comments

Note these studentships are no longer vacant. 3 Apr 2012.

Three fully-funded PhD studentships are available on Pioneering New Uses of Large Facilities. The studentships are jointly funded by the ISIS Facility, STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and by England’s South East Physics Network (SEPnet). The successful candidates will be based at the University of Kent, at Queen Mary, University of London, or at Royal Holloway, University of London and at the ISIS Facility, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. The studentships are fully-funded and include home fees, maintenance and an annual research stipend. British and European students qualifying for home fees are eligible to apply (see http://www.ukcisa.org.uk/student/info_sheets/tuition_fees_ewni.php). Please get in touch with one of the relevant contacts for each project for information on how to apply:
