A refresher course in Quantum Mechanics with a special emphasis on Nuclear and Particle Physics for college/university teachers/research scholars will be held at St Philomenas College, Mysuru, during 17 to 31 December 2017. The course is primarily aimed at teachers involved in teaching quantum mechanics at the undergraduate/postgraduate levels. The course will cover basic and advanced topics of Quantum Mechanics, placing special emphasis on using its ideas in Nuclear and Particle Physics, through lectures and tutorials. College/university teachers having at least a Masters degree in physics are particularly encouraged to apply. A brief outline of the course is as follows:
There will be four modules:
Module 1: Special Theory of Relativity
Module 2: Quantum Mechanics
Module 3: Nuclear and Particle Physics
Module 4: Nuclear and Particle Physics
Resource persons: H.S. Mani (Adjunct Professor, Chennai Mathematical Institute, Chennai), K.S. Mallesh (University of Mysore, Mysuru), M.V.N. Murthy (The Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai), V. Nanal (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai). Ravishankar (IIT Delhi) and G. Rajasekaran (Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai) are also expected to deliver guest lectures.
Applications are invited from teachers with experience in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate courses in physics. Up to 35 applications will be considered and teachers who wish to participate in the refresher course may apply through proper channels with the following details: name, date of birth, e-mail address, official and residential addresses, telephone numbers, academic qualification, courses taught, affiliation, positions held and tenure. It is also essential to submit a brief statement (between 250 and 500 words) as to why the candidate believes the course will help them improve their teaching of Quantum Mechanics.
Interested applicants must submit their application ONLINE by clicking on the following link:
A printed copy of the application approved by the head of the institution should be sent by speed post to the course co-ordinators at St Philomenas College. The last date for receipt of applications is 31st October 2017.
