Chemical Elements as Tracers of the Evolution of the Cosmos

Training School: "An experiment of Nuclear Physics for Astrophysics using direct methods"

IFIN-HH of Bucharest-Magurele, Romania will host a ChETEC training school in nuclear astrophysics of 11 days duration, consisting in classes and hands-on activities:
1. In a target laboratory
2. Performing an experiment at the 3 MV TandetronTM (7 days around the clock)
3. Gamma-ray measurements at the 9 MV tandem and the ROSPHERE array
4. De-activation measurements in a low background underground laboratory "microBequerel" in the Slanic-Prahova salt mine.

Local and invited trainers will lead the participants during the school that will cover most types of activities a physicist engaged in nuclear physics for astrophysics will have to go through, in particular those engaged in direct measurements for nuclear astrophysics.

The trainees:
a. will attend introductory classes
b. will run the experiment round the clock
c. will make the experimental arrangement
d. will collect data
e. will analyze on/offline data (prompt and de-activation gamma-rays).

Selection of the candidates will be done in two steps:

1) Registration on this site, providing data on affiliation and a letter of recommendation from an advisor. Registration deadline: 1st of March, 2018.
2) After a selection by organizers/hosts, the proposed candidacies are submitted to ChETEC for final approval and financing.
