Training and learning


The MAX IV Laboratory contributes to science and development in numerous ways. As highly specialized methods and techniques are used, it can be difficult to know when and how MAX IV can be valuable to solve your problem. For this reason MAX IV has developed a MAX IV Education Platform (MEP)  to promote such education and training.

The MEP includes a number of diverse educational and training instruments to help to know and understand the use of the facility. Many of them are organised by external partners with the full support and collaboration of MAX IV.

Beamtime for training and education

The MEP also states the MAX IV commitment to dedicate 2% of its overall beamtime to training and education at MAX IV. Read more about the open call for proposals to apply for such training and education beamtime. 


Education in Physics embedded at MAX IV

In addition to the MEP there are also possibilities for University Education at Lund University:

Courses in Accelerator Physics, Beamline Instrumentation and applications of Synchrotron radiation are given at MAX IV by the Department of physics at MAX IV.  A Master Program in X-ray and Neutron Science is given by the Department of Physics in close relation with MAX IV. You can read more about the program via this link There are possibilities for MsC and PhD degrees.
