Chemistry: SF2 University Chemical Safety Training Mon 7 Oct 2019   13:30 Finished

Part of Induction Week

Advanced induction training for experimentalists introduces some of the department’s special chemical hazards including explosives, hydrogen fluoride and cyanide, and restricted chemicals, and illustrates the consequences of incorrect waste disposal. Experimentalists are made aware of the biological hazards in the department and how these are controlled with a suitable risk assessment, safety cabinets and the need for the appropriate inactivation method to be applied. Attendees are alerted to the hazards and damage caused by non-ionising radiation, glassware and sharps, oil baths and lifting equipment. The induction concludes by directing the experimentalist to compulsory University-provided specialist training courses, the requirement for fire awareness training and sources of Health and Safety information.

Chemistry: SF4 Pressurised Gas & Cryogens Tue 8 Oct 2019   09:00 Finished

This course will cover safe storage and use of cryogens, safe use and stores of compressed gas, and aspects of oxygen depletion with respect to the above.

Chemistry: SF5 Introduction to Demonstrating Wed 9 Oct 2019   11:00 Finished

We view demonstrating to undergraduate students as a key part of postgraduate education.

Demonstrating is compulsory for 1st and 2d year postgraduate students with the right background (we do not wish to place anybody in the undergraduate laboratories for whom this would be inappropriate).

Demonstrating is also open to all MPhil, 3rd/4th year graduate students and postdoctoral researchers.

« Description not available »

Are you a post-doc (or a PI) at Chemistry applying for grants? Do you need to write a Data Management Plan (DMP) as part of your grant application but don't know how? Are you a post-doc (or PI) who is just interested in learning about writing data management plans? If so, this session is for you.

You will increasingly be required to write a DMP as part of your grant applications, but it is also useful to write one whenever you begin a research project, to help you plan how to manage your data effectively from the start.

During this session you will learn everything you need to know about data management plans:

  • What they are
  • Why they are increasingly required as part of grant applications
  • What to include in data management plans
  • Tools to help writing data management plans
  • See example data management plans

Refreshments will be provided (tea, coffee, and biscuits).
