2016 Research Experience for Undergraduates Program in Solar and Space Physics at the University of Colorado Boulder
Summer 2016 Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF)
The University of Colorado invites undergraduates to apply for a summer Research Experience for highly motivated students interested in solar and space physics. Students will work with scientists at the University of Colorado’s Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) or at the National Center for Atmospheric Research’s (NCAR) High Altitude Observatory (HAO), NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC), the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), North West Research Associates (NWRA), Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER) or Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates (ASTRA) on projects spanning the field of solar and space physics, from instrument hardware to data analysis to modeling of the Sun-Earth system.
The program begins with a summer school in solar and space physics and continues with seminars and discussions while you work at one of the participating laboratories, providing peer collaboration opportunities. At the end of the summer, you will present your research findings.
Who should apply
Current Sophomore and Junior Undergraduate Students. Foreign students may apply but admission will be dependent upon funding. No previous research or programming experience is necessary, and there is no minimum GPA requirement.
June 5, 2016 through July 30, 2016 (8 weeks) [with some flexibility on a case-by-case basis]
$500/week – In addition, participants will be provided with apartment-styled dorm housing and a food allowance. A travel stipend of $500 will be provided.
