Area of Responsibilities



  • Over the course of the project you will be supported in learning the fundamentals of the muon and neutron experimental techniques used to study materials across a wide range of science areas. You will then move on to collaboratively develop their project within the following areas:
  • Researching, writing, and presenting online exercises, quizzes, and tailoring directed courses based on the principles of neutron and muon experiments. For more information about the type of learning materials being created, see: https://e-learning.pan-training.eu/.
  • Developing supporting materials for training school experiments that show the practical details, the scientific basis for them, and how the data are analysed.
  • Working with ISIS staff and international partners on the online learning platform.
  • Disseminating output through technical reports, posters and presentations.
  • The materials developed will be actively used in supporting and training new and existing ISIS users in details of sample preparation, data collection and data analysis. Within this role there are considerable opportunities to develop a broad range of professional skills and learn about a wide range of contemporary science, with support from scientific and technical experts. Additional opportunities to take part in scientific research may be available.
