2022 SPD Graduate Student & Postdoc Fair

Shea Hess Webber Stanford University

Erika Palmerio Predictive Science Inc.

The goal of this event is to introduce prospective grad students and postdocs to US-based institutions that teach and/or perform research in solar physics.

This virtual event is split into two half-day focus sessions. The earlier session (9:00 am - 12:00 pm PST (12:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST) is aimed at prospective graduate students, while the later session (12:00 pm - 2:00 pm PST (3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST) is directed towards postdoctoral scholars. Last year’s fair had about 150 early-career participants from the US as well as from international institutions. Both the grad student session and postdoc session are divided into two parts: 1) a series of brief institutional presentations and 2) institutional breakout Q&A discussions.

If you are a prospective grad student or postdoc and would like to attend, please register via this RSVP Form to indicate your interest! We will make sure to contact all those who sign up with details on how to attend.

Attention Graduate and Postdoc Program Directors: Please let us know if you will be in representing your institution by filling out this form.


We aim to infuse solar physics with fresh perspectives and diversity of thought. The more attendees we have, the brighter the future of our scientific community will be! Share the grad/postdoc interest link above with any and all potential attendees.

Thanks for doing your part to support the future of the solar physics community!

Please contact this year’s fair facilitators Shea Hess-Webber and Erika Palmerio, if you have further questions.
