Astrophysics events

Journal club meetings

This meeting takes place on Tuesdays from 11:15-11:45 on the 4th floor of the Physics building. Postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers take turns at hosting the sessions, discussing a topic of their choice, for example: their own research, a recent paper, or some other idea or theory.

These meetings give our postgraduates and postdoctoral researchers an opportunity to develop their presentation skills and improve their knowledge in unfamiliar areas of active research. Please contact the organiser if you would like more information on upcoming talks.
