Heliophysics Summer School

“Comparative Heliophysics”

24-31 July 2018 - Boulder, CO

Application Deadline: 23 February


Applications are invited for the 2018 Heliophysics Summer School. We are seeking students to join us this coming summer for a unique professional experience. They will learn about the exciting science of heliophysics as a broad, coherent discipline that reaches in space from the Earth’s troposphere to the depths of the Sun, and in time from the formation of the solar system to the distant future.

The 2018 Summer School will focus on the foundations of heliophysics while exploring connections to adjacent disciplines from the perspective of our local cosmos: stars like the Sun, planets like those in the solar system (including exoplanets), and formation histories not too dissimilar from those that are relevant to understanding the formation, evolution, and present state of our immediate space environment.

Student Application Requirement

• Currently enrolled as a graduate student in any phase of training, or first or second year postdoctoral fellow.

• Major in physics with an emphasis on astrophysics, geophysics, plasma physics, and space physics, or experienced in at least one of these areas.

• Pursuing a career in heliophysics or astrophysics.
