BMBF call, ILL PhD stipends, Wolfram-Prandl-Prize to Felix Roosen-Runge (Sept. 27, 2018)

KFN newsletter from Sept. 27, 2018

Dear neutron users,

>>BMBF-Call (Joint Research / ErUM-Pro)

The German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has published the "Directive for Funding Selected Topics in Research on Matter at Large Scale Facilities" in the framework "Research on the Universe and Matter - ErUM". Proposal deadline is November 1, 2018 and funding is planned to start on July 1, 2019. There is more information on the website of the project management agency DESY (PT DESY). Please contact PT DESY if you have problems or questions.

>>ILL PhD program

Use the opportunity for fully funded 3-year PhD projects for doctoral students at ILL: A PhD project can be proposed by any academic researcher authorised to supervise PhD students and belonging to a university or affiliated institution in one of the ILL's Associate or Scientific Member countries. If the PhD proposal is selected, the main proposer generally becomes the external academic PhD supervisor in whose university/institution the PhD student will be enrolled. Projects should be linked to fields of science covered by ILL research, which for our PhD program is divided into 6 fields (Magnetism, Materials Science, Soft Condensed Matter, Biology & Health, Nuclear and Particle Physics, Instruments, Methods and Engineering). An offer to co-finance the project costs would be very welcome but is not a prerequisite. Proposal deadline is November 2, 2018.

>>Dr. Felix Roosen-Runge received the Wolfram-Prandl-Prize 2018

Dr. Felix Roosen-Runge (Lund University) has received the Wolfram-Prandl-Prize 2018 of the KFN during the SNI2018 on Sept. 19, 2018. The prize is awarded every two years to outstanding young scientists and includes a cash prize of 2500 €.


Last week, the German Conference for Research with Synchrotron Radiation, Neutrons and Ion Beams at Large Facilities 2018 brought together over 500 researchers in Garching. The meeting was organised by MLZ on hehalf of the user committe es KFN, KFS and KFSI. It was a performance show in the area of research on matter and universe with large facilities and a meeting of an active research community. Future topics like facility upgrades, new instrumental techniques and acitivities for the Digital Agenda were as much discussed as scientific results and trends.


with kind regards,
