Applications Invited for IPAC Visiting Graduate Fellowships

The Infrared Processing and Analysis Center (IPAC) at Caltech announces the availability of six-month graduate-student fellowships. The program is designed to allow students from other US or international institutions to visit IPAC-Caltech and perform astronomical research in close association with an IPAC scientist.

Eligible applicants are expected to have completed preliminary course work in their graduate program and be available for research during the period of the award. Funding from IPAC will be provided for a six-month period via monthly stipends, plus relocation expenses. Several students are expected to be accepted each year, subject to the availability of funding. Students are expected to be at IPAC during the duration of the Fellowship, nominally January to July, with some flexibility on the starting and ending dates.

The call for 2017 applications is now open; the deadline is 30 August 2016.

For more information please contact the program coordinator, Dr. Rafael Millan-Gabet.

Please follow the application instructions on the IPAC webpage.
