Summer School on ‘Science of Materials’: Apply by February 25
Indian Academy of Sciences, C V Raman Avenue, Sadashivnagar, Bengaluru-560080, has invited applications for the Summer School on ‘Science of Materials’, under the Focus Areas of Science & Technology Summer fellowship -2019.
Science of Materials, deals with preparation, structure and properties of materials. It grew out of an amalgam of the subjects like Chemistry, Physics and Metallurgy. The rich variety of the properties of materials, cannot be understood within the context of any single classical discipline. With a basic understanding of the origins of properties, materials can be selected or designed for an enormous variety of applications ranging from electronics, aerospace, communications, information processing, nuclear power, energy conversion, transportation as well as medicine.
The Summer School of six weeks duration will be conducted at University of Mumbai (UM)-Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) -Centre for Excellence in Basic Sciences (CEBS), Mumbai, located on the Kalina Campus of the University of Mumbai, during 6th May to 14th June 2019 and will cover different aspects of materials science. The focus will be on design and synthesis of materials, methods of characterization, structure and properties of materials as well as their applications in advanced technologies. Internationally reputed distinguished scientists in the field of physics, chemistry, metallurgy as well as biology, will deliver talks. Curriculum will include about 35 lectures on fundamentals of Materials Science, 25 invited lectures and 25 Perspective lectures as well as Practical Classes / Demonstration experiments.
Eligibility: Students in the final UG and first / second year PG course and Teachers from Science and Engineering background with an interest and appreciation for Science of Materials are encouraged to apply.
Accommodation cost will be subsidized and a stipend of Rs. 12,500/- (students)/ Rs 18,750/- (teachers) will be paid along with a certificate of appreciation after successful completion of the internship.
Application: Link to the application is available at https://www.ias.ac.in/. The duly filled application must reach ‘The Coordinator, Science Education Programme, Indian Academy of Sciences, C V Raman Avenue, Sadashivnagar, Bengaluru-560080’, be latest by February 25, 2019.
