The Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy (ASTRON) and the Joint
Institute for VLBI ERIC (JIVE) announce the availability of a limited
number of grants for their 2019 Summer Research Programme. The
Programme enables astronomy students (graduate or advanced
under-graduate) to spend the summer (10-12 weeks) at the institute in
Dwingeloo in the Netherlands, conducting astronomical research under
the supervision of ASTRON and JIVE staff members.
Possible topics of study include radio galaxies and quasars, aspects
of observational cosmology, continuum and line mission/ absorption
from normal and starbust galaxies, faint radio sources, pulsar timing,
pulsar searching, fast radio bursts, molecular clouds, cosmic
magnetism, as well as algorithm development. The actual project the
successful candidate will work on will be defined after arrangement
with the local supervisor. The programme is not aimed at engineering
or electronics students.
