Applications are invited for the 4th Institute of Physics Liquids and Complex Fluids/EPSRC Winter School. The aim of this School is to provide a comprehensive foundation for researchers in the field of liquids and complex fluids. The lectures will introduce key topics
of current interest together with the theoretical, experimental and computer simulation approaches used to address them. The School is directed towards postgraduate students from a wide range of backgrounds including physics, chemistry, chemical engineering and
The School is built around a rolling programme of lectures, which will ensure that the majority of PhD students can cover the full programme over a three year period. Each School will consist of a series of lectures presented by active members of the community. In 2010 these include:
Jim Henderson, ‘Theory/simulation in liquids and complex fluids' (University of Leeds)
‘Molecular Liquids’ Alan Soper(ISIS, Oxford)
‘Colloids’, Paul Bartlett (University of Bristol)
‘Polymers’ Patrick Warren (Unilever).
The cost of attending, accommodation and meals (but excluding travel) is £350 for academic and £450 for industrial participants.
A limited number of bursaries are available to UK students whose work is covered by the EPSRC remit. A limited number of IOP LCFG travel bursaries are also available for LCFG group student members.
