ISIS runs various courses and schemes to ensure that users get the most from a facility supported by staff of the highest quality.
Learning how to use neutron and muon methods
ISIS runs regular training courses for postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers from the UK and EU in both neutron scattering and muon techniques. The aim is to give them the necessary grounding to carry out experiments at ISIS successfully.
The five-day courses include lectures on theory, safety and radiation protection, the ISIS accelerator and targets, the instruments and techniques used, combined with hands-on activities. The ISIS website also has extensive information - manuals, lectures and hand-outs - which supplements the courses.
As part of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, ISIS participates in several training schemes supported by the STFC. These offer a unique opportunity to young people at all stages of education to build up engineering, technical and computing skills to the highest level.
