Join the initiative for a new Swedish PhD program on synchrotron science!

As a Big Science Nation, home to the world’s most brilliant synchrotron, and a hotbed for leading photon science, Sweden aims to take the lead on educating the next generation of synchrotron experts by suggesting a new PhD research programme: PRISMAS – PhD Research and Innovation in Synchrotron Methods and Applications in Sweden.

The programme is envisioned to strengthen the network surrounding Swedish academia and MAX IV with regard to synchrotron methods for research. We submitted an application for funding through an EU COFUND action, a part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme. The proposal was very well received and positively evaluated, however not granted at this stage. The initiative continues to be structured and planned for a near future, we welcome you to join us.

By joining the application and possible future PhD programme, you will be able to:

  • Increase the use of advanced synchrotron methods in your research 
  • Be a part of shaping the development of MAX IV 
  • Ensure that the Swedish synchrotron community remains world-leading
  • Strengthen the competence exchange between MAX IV and your organisation
  • Maximise the benefit from MAX IV development to society
  • Promote synchrotron techniques as a research method together with other universities and industry
  • Jointly build a career platform for mentorship programs and peer to peer networking in the synchrotron community
