CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
POST-MSC COURSE
"METHODS OF ABSOLUTE DATING AND APPLICATIONS"

The GADAM Centre (Gliwice Absolute Dating Methods Centre) at the Silesian University of Technology commences recruitment for the second edition (first edition ended in the summer semester 2005) of the extramural, post-graduate Internet based studies "Methods of absolute dating and applications". The course is organised within the Marie-Curie Transfer of Knowledge project ATIS (Absolute Time scales and Isotope Studies for investigating events in Earth and human history http://atis.polsl.pl/)

The aim of the Post-MSc course "Methods of absolute dating and applications" is the integration of different disciplines at university level and supplementary interdisciplinary education for graduates in natural science, earth science and archaeology. Upon completion of the Course and defending a thesis the student will receive a diploma certifying completion of post-MSc studies.

The teaching is carried out by university lecturers and professors/researchers employed at the GADAM Centre who have first hand experience in disciplines like radiocarbon dating, stable isotope analysis, luminescence dating, lead-210 and caesium dating, high resolution gamma spectroscopy and the interpretation of the obtained data. They also offer many years of teaching experience at academic level.

The objectives of the Post-MSc course "Methods of absolute dating and applications":
