MUARC Summer school on Advanced Techniques in Atomic Physics
22-27 August, 2010
The school is intended to enable advanced graduate students or early post-docs to target the next step in their career. The idea is to provide a first step into new scientific topics and the associated techniques at the interface of Cold Atoms and Quantum Optics. Each scientific topic will be given at least 4 hours, of which 50% are dedicated to the techniques and real-world challenges. In addition we will offer perspectives in funding and careers beyond science in a set of hour-long lectures. The school size of 50 students is designed to allow lots of opportunities for face-to-face interactions with the lecturers.

Summer school fees
The school is free for PhD students registered in UK universities; you only need to pay for your own travel to and from the venue (or the airport). For post-docs and students from institutions outside of the UK, the registration is free but there will be a charge of £300 to contribute towards the accommodation expenses.
Please download and complete the application form and return by email to Vincent Boyer at email@example.com. Places on the summer school are limited so early registration is recommended. Applications will be considered by a panel to achieve an appropriate balance of attendees. Full instructions for registration will be provided later.
DEADLINE. Apply before 31 July to ensure that your application will be considered. Past that deadline, applications will be considered only if there are places remaining.
