Gordon Godfrey Workshop on Spins, Topology and Strong Electron Correlations

The 2019 Gordon Godfrey Workshop on Spins, Topology and Strong Electron Correlations will be held at UNSW from November 25 – 29 2019

You can find further information on the Gordon Godfrey Workshop page https://newt.phys.unsw.edu.au/Godfrey/2019/

The workshop is FREE, and we are particularly encouraging Honours students, Masters/PhD, postdocs and ECRs to attend. There will also be an evening poster session for which we are encouraging submissions.

The topics of the 2019 Gordon Godfrey Workshop are:

  • Spins/pseudospins and correlations in low dimensioUnal systems and nanostructures
  • Topological physics and materials
  • Phase transitions, Superconductivity, Bose condensation
  • Correlations in metal oxides

Poster session: An informal poster session for students and early career researchers will be held during the workshop. All that is needed is a poster title, which is simply entered into the online registration form.

Summer Meeting underway; PhD and post-doc opportunities; and more – Physics in December

In this edition of the AIP’s monthly email bulletin, we extend  a very warm welcome to the committee members elected at  recent the recent state branch AGMs.

The AIP is active through its branches, and a wide network of volunteer physicists keep the business of the Institute moving smoothly. I hope you’ll join me in welcoming our new committee members, as well as acknowledging everyone who has worked to keep the AIP moving from strength to strength in 2017.
Speaking of volunteers, they are also running the first AIP Summer Meeting now underway. A good turnout from students is already making the meeting a success and I look forward to returning to Sydney on Wednesday to hear more about the latest developments in physics across Australia. More on that below. 

National meetings like this are a great way for students (as well as those of us who are no longer students) to make connections, and to find out about employment prospects around the country. Not coincidentally, the Summer Meeting is held at the time of year that universities start thinking of recruiting, and to help that process there are plenty of job opportunities in this bulletin.

Finally, we offer our congratulations to Professor Judith Dawes on her appointment to the role of Treasurer of Science & Technology Australia (STA). We also extend our sincere thanks to outgoing STA President Professor Jim Piper, Walter Boas medalist and long-time stalwart of the Australian physics community, for his unfailing and enthusiastic advocacy of Australian science throughout his Presidency.

And read on to find out how you can make use of the AIP’s association with STA to get your voice heard in the “Halls of Power” in Canberra next February.

Regards,

Andrew Peele
