Recent Appointees in Materials Science (RAMS) 2015 is the only National conference specifically aimed at new Academic appointees (Lecturers, Research Fellows and Postdocs) in Materials Science. This year’s conference will take place at the University of Warwick over 2 days (16-17th September 2015).

The RAMS 2015 conference will include symposia with plenary and contributed oral presentations and a poster session covering a broad range of subjects in Materials Science, networking opportunities as well as panel discussions to encourage collaboration, stimulate discussions and provide an open forum for advice.

The conference will incorporate Plenary lectures from leading UK materials scientists, Prof. Aron Walsh and Prof. Mary Ryan. Sessions on essential training and development and information on funding opportunities will be delivered through panel discussions led by successful Academics and representatives from funding bodies.
