Culham Plasma Physics Summer School

This school is the 56th in the series organized at the Culham Science Centre in Oxfordshire, a leading site for research in plasma physics and controlled nuclear fusion carried out under the auspices of EUROfusion and the UK Atomic Energy Authority.

The summer school consists of lectures, problem classes, a poster session, and laboratory visits. The first few days provide an introduction to the basic principles of plasma physics through lectures and problem solving sessions. Thereafter, the course covers fusion plasmas, solar, space and astrophysical plasmas, laser plasmas, industrial applications, and data analysis.

Students must be over 18 to attend the summer school and generally will be in their final year of undergraduate or first year of post graduate study.

Postdocs in Nuclear Engineering Meeting: University of Oxford

The annual Postdocs in Nuclear Energy meeting (PiNE) will be hosted by the University of Oxford in 2018. PiNE offers the opportunity for post-doctoral or equivalent level researchers to get together in an informal environment, share their work and learn what else is going on in the nuclear research community. A range of speakers from the nuclear energy sector will give presentations and will be on hand to offer career advice and insights into the future of nuclear energy research in the UK.

The registration fee will include lunch and a formal evening meal and poster session at St Edmunds Hall in Oxford and delegates are given the opportunity to attend a tour of the Joint European Torus (JET) and the recently established Materials Research Facility (MRF) located at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy.
