Summer Student Opportunities

Jeff Mangum, NRAO Student Programs Coordinator

The NRAO is now accepting applications for the 2010 NRAO Summer Student Research Assistantships program. Each summer student conducts research under the supervision of an NRAO staff member at one of the Observatory’s sites, on a project in the supervisor’s area of expertise. The project may involve any aspect of astronomy, including original research, instrumentation, telescope design, or astronomical software development. See the November eNews article for details.

The application form and application process for the NRAO summer student program is available online. Required application materials include an on-line application form (including a statement of interest), official transcripts, and three letters of recommendation. The deadline for receipt of applications is 1 February 2010.
