Tufts University Soft Material Robotics IGERT Fellowships

We invite seniors who plan to pursue graduate education in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Computer Science, or any of the Engineering disciplines to explore the Tufts University Soft Material Robotics – IGERT website. Information on how to apply for a 2015 Soft Material Robotics – IGERT Fellowship is available on the website.

As a recipient of the National Science Foundation’s prestigious IGERT (Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship) award, Tufts University has accepted the challenge of establishing new models for graduate education and training. Our goal is to create a collaborative environment in which our research transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries, with a focus on soft material robotics.


The Annual National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering

The 17th Annual National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering will be held at Argonne and Oak Ridge National Labs from June 13-27, 2015.  This school is designed to help introduce graduate students to the capabilities available at the neutron and x-ray user facilities in the United States. Lectures, presented by researchers from academia, industry, and national laboratories, include basic tutorials on the principles of neutron and x-ray scattering theory, the characteristics of neutron and synchrotron X-ray sources, as well as seminars on the application of scattering methods to a variety of scientific subjects.  As part of the school, students also conduct a series of short experiments to provide some hands-on experience using instruments at neutron and synchrotron sources, at Argonne’s Advanced Photon Source, and Oak Ridge’s Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor facilities.

Students interested in attending should complete an application at http://neutrons.ornl.gov/nxs/ by February 23, 2015.  Please note that all the travel and lodging costs for students accepted to attend will be covered as part of the school.  Part of the application process includes submission of evaluation letters from among the student’s advisor, department chair and other professors.

Lecture notes and videos of the 2014 NXS School are available at: http://neutrons.ornl.gov/conf/nxs2013/
