The workshop is particularly targeted for PhD students and postdocs having projects aimed at 3D structure determination using biomacromolecular crystals, working at institutes in countries that are a member of SESAME and/or working at institutes of Instruct-ERIC countries relatively far from European Synchrotrons, as well as for students from non-EU countries, working at EU-institutes, who need to apply for visa, restricting efficient access to perform on-site data collection.

There is no registration fee and we will cover also the accommodation costs and meals of the students. Travel fellowships are available, please request such support in the motivation letter. Application for the course can be submitted from now on till deadline is 11.03.2018.

The application should include:

  • a cv
  • a motivation letter [1 page maximum]
  • an abstract of the project that on which you would like to collect remote data [1 page maximum]
  • a letter of recommendation from the supervisor

The motivation letter should include information on the availability of crystals to be used for remote data collection during the workshop. Applications can be submitted online using the online registration form. Please use as file names cv-firstname-secondname, motivationletter-firstname-secondname, abstract-firstname-secondname, and supervisorletter-firstname-secondname when completing the registration www-site on-line. 

We will decide and inform each applicant as soon as possible. Subsequently we will communicate concerning crystal handling. We will also ask you to prepare a powerpoint file on your project. Only two slides should be prepared, introducing your institute (title slide) and your project (second slide) to be used for a brief introduction of your project at the beginning of the workshop.
