Introducing Casimir Research School

  1. 1. Casimir Research School
  2. 2. Introducing Casimir The Casimir Research School (Casimir) is a research school in interdisciplinary physics, established in 2004 by the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft University of Technology (Kavli) and the Leiden Institute of Physics (LION). Our aim is to improve the education of young researchers towards a PhD degree by creating interplay between PhD students and experienced researchers and by offering a research-related course program. 15 MSc-students, 270 PhD students, 120 postdocs and 90 senior researchers together form our Casimir community.

  5. 5. Casimir facilitates advanced graduate courses and workshops for PhD students and postdocs. Casimir PhD students are required to take at least three of the following courses: PhD students are also encouraged to improve their ‘soft skills’. Courses offered by the graduate schools of Leiden and Delft University are: Casimir Courses: current list is available on http://casimir.researchschool.nl/program-7.html • Hot Topics in Quantum Nanoscience • Electronics for Physicists • Frontiers of Measurements • Biology for Physicists • Nanochemistry for Physicists • Hot Topics in Bionanoscience • Frontiers of Condensed Matter • Advanced Microscopy • Theoretical Biophysics • Entrepreneurship • The Art of Presenting Science • The Art of Scientific Writing • Writing an excellent research grant proposal • How to Get Funded • Career planning • Scientific Integrity • Research Design • Scientific Writing in English • Communication in Science • Intellectual Property • Effective Communication • Coaching • Time management/self-management
  6. 6. Casimir Pre-PhD Specialisation of the (Applied) Physics MSc-program Coordinator Pre-PhD track: Christophe Danelon
  7. 7. Casimir PhD positions The program is concluded with writing a research proposal for a PhD project. The student can choose to submit this proposal to compete for a Casimir PhD-position. Casimir PhD-positions are awarded to outstanding students of the Casimir Pre-PhD track; their research proposal has to be well balanced between being feasible and ambitious. Former winners of Casimir PhD positions are: Marios Kounalakis (2015), Guoji Zheng (2015), Joeri de Bruijckere (2015), Michiel Bakker (2015), Misha Klein (2014), Tom van der Reep (2014), Henk Snijders (2014), Jelmer Wagenaar (2013), Julia Cramer (2012), Chris Smiet (2012), and Tim Baart (2011).
