Call for applications for Faculty-Student teams to spend 2 months at LAAMP's participating advanced light sources

The successful applicants will spend two (2) months during Calendar Year 2025 at LAAAMP’s AdLS Collaborative Partners to acquire expertise in accelerator technology or AdLS beamline techniques, including those involving crystallography.

The International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP), the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr), and Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) will award FAST Team grants to enhance advanced light source (AdLS) and crystallography sciences in eight (8) targeted regions of the world: Africa, the Caribbean, Mexico, South America, Central Asia, Southeast Asia, Middle East, and Pacific.

The project LAAAMP (Light sources for Africa, the Americas, Asia, Middle East and Pacific) is an international initiative to broaden and democratize the use of Synchrotron Radiation around the world. LAAAMP started in 2016 by the International Science Council (ISC) through a grant awarded to the joint IUPAP-IUCr project entitled Utilisation of Light Source and Crystallographic Sciences to Facilitate the Enhancement of Knowledge and Improve the Economic and Social Conditions in Targeted Regions of the World.

The project aims to enhance Advanced Light Sources (AdLS) and crystallographic sciences in Africa, Mexico, the Caribbean, South America, Central and Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and the Pacific Islands.

Deadline for applications: 31 October 2024.
