Källén Seminars for Young Astronomers

A seminar series for young astronomers at Lund Observatory.

The Källén Seminars for Young Astronomers is a seminar series organised by and intended for the young researchers of Lund Observatory. The seminar series is financed by the Gunnar and Gunnel Källén’s Memorial Fund and the Faculty of Science.

The seminar series invites international speakers to present their research to an audience of masters students, PhD students, and post-doctoral researchers. The goal is to broaden the knowledge of young astronomers, expand research networks, and develop expertise in astronomy. Regular attendees will experience what it is like to engage in academic discourse in a student-friendly environment while cultivating the underlying communication skills necessary for success in and outside academia.

Every Tuesday (during the semester or upon agreement), the seminars host an internal or external speaker between 12:15-13:15. The presentations last for 40 minutes, followed by questions and discussions amongst the participants and the speaker. To enable informal discussions after the seminar, ‘fika’ (afternoon coffee) is provided afterwards to will allow students to talk with the speaker and get to know them.
