A little advertising: on Thursday September 23 and Friday September 24 the University of Queensland Physics Department is going to be holding a Postgraduate Information and Recruitment Day. Australian and New Zealand students who might be interested in doing a PhD in physics are strongly encouraged to apply. See the above links for more information about research activities within the Department.
Successful applicants will be flown to Brisbane to participate in activities on Thursday afternoon and Friday; we will also provide accommodation for Saturday and Sunday, if you should wish to stay and explore Brisbane and surrounds. I think the event last year was a great deal of fun for all concerned, and am looking forward to it again this year.
