Opportunity for a Summer Student to Work on Comet Hunters Data
Many of the Comet Hunters science team are based at the Institute of Astronomy & Astrophysics at Academia Sinica (ASIAA) in Taiwan. As part of the 2016 ASIAA Summer Student Program, we’re looking for an undergraduate or masters student to come to Taipei for July and August to help work on Comet Hunters. Over the summer, the student will help develop a suite of tools to help quickly vet and validate candidate Main belt comet discoveries identified by Comet Hunters.
ASIAA operates in English, and all research will be conducted in English. The description of the project can be found here. You can find the requirements,rules, and restriction of the program here.
Apply by March 25th. If you have questions or if you would like to know more, you can contact me via email at mschwamb AT asiaa.sinica.edu.tw or post in the comments below.
This is very cool! 🙂
I have lots of questions; to whom should these be addressed?
I guess my top two questions might be:
1) Are there any age restrictions? and
2) If a CH zooite, say, were interested but they are not currently a university student, they should not consider applying (irrespective of how well they meet the language, academic background, computer skills, etc requirements), right?
Requirements, rules, and restrictions for the program are http://events.asiaa.sinica.edu.tw/ssp/2016/detail.php This particular program is only open to undergraduate and masters students.
I read all the links in the blog post, but wanted to be 100% certain that I, for example, could only apply if I were currently enrolled as an undergrad in a university, or in a masters program. Let’s continue the discussion in CH Talk (where I started a thread, after being unable to log onto WP).
