14th Zurich Winter School 2020

19-24 January 2020

The 14th Zurich Winter School 2020 on Advanced Microscopy will take place in Zurich, Switzerland, from Sunday, 19 January to Friday, 24 January 2020.
Lectures and practical sessions take place at ETH Zurich (Campus Hönggerberg) and University of Zurich (Campus Irchel)

This advanced microscopy course is intended for PhD students and post-graduates with prior experience in microscopy. The goal of the course is to teach and train fundamental knowledge and skills in a specific microscopic technique. Students will be able to apply this technique to their own present and future projects. Practical work consists of six different modules covering a specific topic each. Each practical module lasts throughout the whole course. Students will participate in one module only and use state-of-the-art instrumentation. Theoretical joined sessions will in turn cover basic knowledge about all the different techniques for all students.

The application deadline is on Sunday, 10 November 2019. The notification of acceptance will be given at the beginning of December 2019.

The Winter School is valued with 2-3 ECTS credits (depending on the institution).
