Application form (Closed)
The number of participants is limited to 20.

The course is open to PhD students and postdocs from the ØKS region. Applicants can come from academic institutions and private companies and should have a scientific focus on structural biology, a basic prior knowledge of crystallographic data collection, and be able to process data from a well diffracting single protein crystal.
An introduction to standard data processing can be arranged at Aarhus University prior to the course for participants lacking these qualifications. 

No registration fee for students enrolled at one of the  partners of the MAX4ESSFUN project:
Aarhus University (DK), Chalmers University of Technology (SE), Lund University (SE), Malmö University (SE), Technical University of Denmark (DK), University of Copenhagen (DK), University of Gothenburg (SE) or University of Oslo (NO)
Costs for accommodation and meals are covered by MAX4ESSFUN.
