How do I use this calendar?
You can click on an event to display further information about it.
The toolbar above the calendar has buttons to view different events. Use the left and right arrow icons to view events in the past and future. The button inbetween returns you to today's view. The button to the right of this shows a mini-calendar to let you quickly jump to any date.
The dropdown box on the right allows you to see a different view of the calendar, such as an agenda or a termly view.
If this calendar has tags, you can use the labelled checkboxes at the top of the page to select just the tags you wish to view, and then click "Show selected". The calendar will be redisplayed with just the events related to these tags, making it easier to find what you're looking for.

Theory Seminar: Sergii Strelchuk (Cambridge), Optimal Port-based Teleportation in Arbitrary Dimension, 1300 in PS1.28PS1.28
Quantum teleportation is one of the earliest and most widely used primitives in Quantum Information Science which performs an arbitrary quantum state transfer between two spatially separated systems. It involves pre-sharing an entangled resource state and consists of three simple stages. The first stage involves a joint measurement of the teleported subsystem together with the share of the resource state on the sender’s side. In the second step, a classical measurement outcome is communicated to the receiver. The last step consists of applying a requisite correction operation which recovers the transmitted quantum state.
The Royal Society invite applications for the Dorothy Hodgkin fellowships. These enable early-career scientists who require a flexible working pattern due to personal circumstance to take the first step into an independent research career. Research may address all areas of the life and physical sciences, including engineering, but excluding clinical medicine.
Applicants must have completed their PhD but have no more than six years of research experience after receipt of their PhD award. Individuals who hold a permanent post in a university or non-profit organisation may not apply. Preference may be given to applications from underrepresented groups.
Approximately four to five awards are available. Funding covers 80 per cent of the basic salary costs up to £40,030 in the first year, estates costs and indirect costs; as well as research expenses worth up to £13,000 for the first year and up to £11,000 annually thereafter. Successful applicants who are about to start their first year are eligible to apply for a research grant worth up to £150,000.
STFC - UK-Thailand capacity building in software and hardware infrastructures and data handling through astronomy
NB: These are Newton Fund realted and must be ODA compliant. For details on ODA compliance, please ask Louisa Hopkins.
The Science and Technology Facilities Council, under the Newton Fund, and the National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand invite applications for their capacity building in software and hardware infrastructures and data handling through astronomy call. This supports projects aimed at capacity building in software and hardware infrastructures and data handling through astronomy. It is anticipated that the funded projects will use a range of mechanisms, including training or summer schools and exchange programmes for PhD students, early career researchers, computer programmers, engineers, technicians and outreach. Call themes are:
•mechatronics or telescope control;
•very-long-baseline interferometry engineering, technology and research;
•outreach to support STEM education programme in schools.
Projects must include a collaboration of UK and Thailand based researchers.
Total funding available is £1 million from the Newton Fund, and TBH 15m from NARIT, to fund projects of 18 months to two years in duration.
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council invites expressions of interest for its network plus grant under the Supergen solar programme. This aims to continue fostering networks with the wider energy community and strengthen those that currently exist within the solar community, in order to maintain the UK’s solar capacity and initiate investigations in novel and adventurous topics in the research area. Funding may support the following:
•engagement, communication and networking – including meetings, conferences and workshops to foster and strengthen relationships within the wider Solar community and other Supergen programme investments, disseminate information and maintaining an awareness of current and upcoming developments;
•multidisciplinary feasibility projects that would subsequently support the strategic use of EPSRC standard mode funding or other research council equivalent;
•early-career researchers or to provide staff retention to support equality, diversity and inclusion activities within the network;
•funding for the network to adapt and react quickly, to changes in the energy landscape.
Researchers base in UK higher education institutions, EPSRC-eligible research council institutes and independent research organisations may apply.
One grant, worth £1 million, is available over four years. It may be used towards core research, flexible fund, support staff including a hub manager as well as communications, engagement and networking activities.
