On November 2nd 2018, the CoSInES project will be launched with an afternoon of presentations related to the project.
We’d like to invite anyone who would like to attend to register their interest by emailing Shital Desai. Lunch will be provided starting from 12:15pm and the event will conclude with a short drinks reception to celebrate the beginning of the project. The talks are scheduled to finish by roughly 16.30 and will take place in Warwick University Oculus lecture theatre OC0.02.
The project will very soon be advertising 5 4-year PDRA positions associated with the project. These positions can be based at any of the 5 institutions involved in the grant. Informal enquiries regarding these positions to Gareth Roberts are very welcome. Please also see the job listing for which applications are now open.
