The solar/space research group at Montana State University invites applications for a Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates program for students interested in solar-terrestrial and space physics. Research projects in this program involve analysis of data from solar space missions such as Yohkoh, SoHO, TRACE, RHESSI, Hinode, SDO, STEREO, and IRIS, numerical modeling in solar magnetohydrodynamics, and space hardware development. The program includes lectures on a variety of topics that are relevant to solar physics, space weather, and space hardware. The program is suitable for most math, physics, and astronomy students at the sophomore or junior level.
The 2020 summer program will run from June 1 – August 7. Successful applicants will receive stipend, room and board, and travel allowance. Application must be complete by February 17. For more information and on-line application, please visit the website at solar.physics.montana.edu/reu
About Montana State University
The MSU Solar and Space Physics group studies many facets of the sun – from its surface and chromosphere to solar wind and space weather around it, with collaborations and partnerships around the world.
The sun is the main source of energy in the solar system and is crucial for the existence of life on Earth. The variability and activity of this star influence our climate and space environment. Understanding these variations is essential to distinguish natural and man-made causes of global climate change and important for protecting our technologies in space and on Earth.
The Solar and Space Physics group engages in a wide variety of projects, including undergraduate and graduate education, public outreach, and solar and space physics research. For more information, please visit http://www.montana.edu/solarphysics/
