We are excited to announce the PRISMAS PhD Programme successfully held its first annual meeting on June 10-11, 2024. This event was the perfect occasion for our students to network, present innovative techniques to be used in their projects, and discuss their work with PIs and distinguished guests. The meeting fostered collaboration and the exchange of ideas, reinforcing the programme's commitment to developing leading synchrotron experts.

As we continue to grow our talented group of students, we are pleased to open the Third and Final Call for Recruitment to fill the last positions in the PRISMAS programme. The call is open from July 1, 2024, to August 31, 2024, with employment starting on January 1, 2025. This corresponds to a four-year employment period from January 1, 2025, to December 31, 2028. Open positions are presented on the PRISMAS webpage.

“We are thrilled to see the PRISMAS network expanding and more students joining us. With this final third call, we aim to fill all the remaining positions and ensure that these exciting projects are realized into valuable and important research,” explained Gabija Siaulytyte, PRISMAS project coordinator.

PRISMAS – PhD Research and Innovation in Synchrotron Methods and Applications in Sweden – aims to provide students with the best possible opportunity to become leaders in synchrotron research.
