Department of Physics, Lancaster University

Sunday 1st September – Friday 6th September 2019


Registration is now open.


The 2019 STFC-funded Advanced Summer School will be hosted by the Space and Planetary Physics Group in the Department of Physics at Lancaster University. The programme consists of core lectures in Space Plasma Physics and Solar Physics alongside more specialised topics and is aimed at second- and third-year PhD students. The advanced summer school is designed to consolidate understanding gained in the STFC Introductory Summer School, and to place research in a broader thematic context, as well as providing an opportunity for PhD students to network with their peers and share experiences. Full funding will be available for up to 27 STFC-supported and self-funded PhD students; priority is given to STFC-supported students and free self-funded places are only confirmed after the close of registration. Non-STFC-funded students and PDRAs are welcome to attend subject to a registration fee.
