3rd IAGA Summer School
The 3rd IAGA Summer School will be held from August 21-25 in Hermanus near Cape Town, South Africa, just before the IAPSO-IAMAS-IAGA Joint Assembly. It aims at providing excellent early career scientists (mainly PhD students) with a good basic understanding of a wide range of the scientific topics covered by IAGA, the International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy. The Summer School consists of lectures accompanied by practical exercises, presented by international experts in the fields (see also http://www.iaga-aiga.org/index.php?id=youngscientists).
About 20 PhD students will be sponsored for accommodation and cost of living. As it is expected that participants will also attend the Joint Assembly they are expected to cover travel costs to Cape Town themselves. Nominations for IAGA-sponsored participants should come from Division Chairs after discussions with their Working Groups.
How to apply:
Students interested in participating should apply in electronic form to the Chair of the IAGA Division VI, Dr. Nick Palshin (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications (pdf format) must contain a short CV (minimum name, affiliation, contact information, date of birth, gender, nationality) and a short letter of motivation. Please send applications by October 30, 2016. Your application will be evaluated by the Division Committee and conclusive ones will be forwarded to the IAGA Executive Committee.
Selection of participants will be made by the IAGA Executive Committee and information on acceptance will be sent before December 31, 2016.
