Current call for proposals for beamtime

A call for user proposals will open on March 28, 2018 and close on April 27, 2018 at the MAX IV Laboratory. This call is for proposals requesting beam time at the he BioMAX, HIPPIE  and NanoMAX beamlines in the Research Areas Structural Biology, Spectroscopy and Nano Sciences respectively. The call is for Normal proposals and in addition for Structural Biology only, we will also open for Block Allocation Group (BAG) proposals.

Beam time will be allocated from October 2018 to the end of June 2019.

Detailed information on the capabilities of the beamlines addressed in this call can be found at their beamline pages. Please do not hesitate to contact the beamline teams to discuss whether your experiments are feasible during this period.

Proposals as well as sample declarations should be submitted through our DUO-system. The proposals will be reviewed for technical safety and technical feasibility by MAX IV staff while scientific excellence will be assessed by our Programme Advisory Committee (PAC).  A decision will be taken at the beginning of July 2018 and communicated thereafter.

More information on obtaining access to the MAX IV Laboratory can be found in our user guide.

Commissioning experts call summer 2018

We are preparing a call for commissioning experts for the BLOCH, FinEstBeaMS and SPECIES beamlines at the 1.5 GeV ring. The commissioning expert call will be opened in summer 2018. More information on these calls as well as the technical expertise we require for the commissioning expert call will appear on our website nearer to the opening of this call.
