For Higher Degree Research Candidates - an elective in the Graduate Certificate in Research
XGR504 will provide the postgraduate researcher with a greater understanding of the diversity, capability and applicability of the specialist analytical equipment housed within the Central Science Laboratory (CSL). The unit will include an introductory overview of CSL capabilities followed by two instrument focussed practical/workshop based electives. During the elective candidates will work in the laboratory and be introduced to the techniques, principles of operation, issues related to the methodology, sample preparation, instrument maintenance, and data interpretation. Where possible students will be encouraged to bring along their own samples for analysis. Key focus will also be given to safety aspects with students expected to prepare appropriate risk assessments.
