NASA Heliophysics Summer School 2009
July 22-29, 2009 Boulder, CO

The third of a three-year NASA-sponsored Heliophysics Summer School will be hosted by the UCAR Visiting Scientist Programs in Boulder, CO, 22-29 July 2009.

The summer school has two principal aims: 1) to deepen the appreciation of the basic science of heliophysics for a select group of students as teachers take them through highly interactivediagram of a geo-magnetic storm seminars and hands-on working groups, and 2) to produce a series of textbooks from which heliophysics may be taught at universities worldwide.

The third year of the program will focus on long-term processes, from the Sun’s modulated activity to its influences on the climate systems of the heliosphere, Earth’s atmosphere, and planetary environments. The first year covered the plasma physics of the local cosmos, i.e., the science that is uniquely enabled by our existence within an environment of ionized gases. The second year covered explosive energy conversion and energetic particles. Thus, the three-year program of the summer school encompasses the entire scientific discipline that is now called heliophysics, which was borne out of the need for interdisciplinary research in the context of NASA’s Living with a Star (LWS) Program.

Approximately 30 students (chosen from graduate students through first or second year postdoctoral fellows) will be selected each year through a competitive process to participate in the summer school. Each participant will receive air travel, lodging and per diem.

The summer school is sponsored by the Living With a Star program of the Heliophysics Division in NASA’s Science Mission Directorate. The UCAR Visiting Scientist Programs office administers the summer school.

The deadline for application submission by students is 1 April 2009.

A successful candidate should:

* Be an enrolled graduate student in any phase of training or first or second year postdoctoral fellow.
* Major in physics with an emphasis on astrophysics, space physics, or geophysics, or have research experience in at least one of these areas.
* Plan to pursue a career in heliophysics or astrophysics.

I found this program on this website Good luck to the applicants Very Happy
