STFC Introductory Course in Solar System Plasma Physics – Reminder

June 15, 2017, from Richard Morton

This is the final reminder that the registration for this year STFC Introductory Course in Solar System Plasma Physics will be closed soon. The STFC Introductory Scool will take place from 10-15 September 2017 at the Jury’s Inn, Northumbria University, Newcastle, UK.

The course is aimed at 1st year PhD students but open to PhD students of any year. There are some fully-funded places available for STFC-funded PhD students, booked on a first come first serve basis. Non-STFC PhD students and PDRAs are welcome to attend but will have to pay a registration fee.

Aside from the taught programme there will be plenty of opportunities for networking and socialising with other students and lecturers with an ice breaker event at the hotel (Sunday) and at Northumbria University (Monday) and conference dinner (Thursday), plus an excursion to the historical Tynemouth Priory, located on one of Northumberland’s glorious beaches.

For more details please see

We ask kindly the supervisors to highlight this opportunity to their PhD students. The deadline of registration is 30 June 2017, after which the LOC cannot guarantee the hotel places because of a very strong competition with the participants and supporters of the Great North Run.

Best wishes,
