UPDATE: Due to some internal webserver issue, the application forms for the 6th TEM Summer School were closed early on September 20th. So to compensate it, the deadlines for accepting the application forms is extended and will be open on September 23rd between 8h (UTC – 11:00 am) until 15h (UTC – 06:00 pm). We apologies for any inconvenience. Thank you. Visit the event website: http://pages.cnpem.br/temsummerschool/.
Candidates may apply until August 31st. 100 participants are expected to attend the school.
Conducted every two years the already established Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) Summer School will receive applications for its sixth edition until August 31st. The event will be held at the Brazilian Nanotechnology National Laboratory (LNNano), located in the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) campus, Campinas – Brazil, between January 11 and 29, 2016.
This school aims to contribute to the advanced training of graduate students and researchers in the fields of engineering, materials science, physics, chemistry and related fields from academic and industrial communities, in Brazil and abroad, on theoretical and practical concepts of TEM techniques for materials characterization. It is a three week course where the first two weeks are dedicated to basic and advanced theoretical classes and the third one will be focused on practical classes using the Electron Microscopy facilities available at LNNano.
The courses will be taught by leading researchers in the field of electron microscopy associated to important research and educational institutions of Brazil and oversees. See all speakers for the 6th edition.
Every candidate must fill out the application form, attaching an updated CV, Graduate transcripts, a summary of research project justifying the use of TEM techniques, an essay justifying why is important for you to attend the school, an abstract of partial or complete analysis of your own scientific research (using TEM) to present as poster, and a recommendation letter. Check How to participate.
The 6th TEM Summer School is organized by the Electron Microscopy Laboratory (LME/LNNano) with the FAPESP support. For further information please visit: http://pages.cnpem.br/temsummerschool/
