The 2017 Heliophysics Summer School focuses on the physics of the connections between the Sun, the heliosphere, the magnetospheres and the upper atmospheres of the planets.

The school will be based on lectures, laboratories, and recitations from world experts, and will draw material from the four textbooks Heliophysics I-IV, published by Cambridge University Press.


NOAA’s National Weather Service (NWS)/Office of Dissemination (DISS) and National Ocean Service (NOS)/Coast Survey Development Laboratory (CSDL), Durham, NH

Initial consideration will be given to applications received prior to 4:00 p.m. (MST), Wednesday 21 December, 2016. ***Extended***

This Visiting Scientist will become a part of NOAA’s nowCOAST Development Team. nowCOAST is a web-based GIS portal which provides users and partners with near-real-time coastal intelligence on recent past, present and future environmental conditions. This is accomplished by integrating and disseminating surface observations, imagery, watches/warnings, forecasts, and model forecast guidance from NOS, NWS, NESDIS, and other federal and state agencies.

Heliophysics embraces all science aspects of the Sun-Solar System, and includes many of the basic physical processes that are found in our solar system, the laboratory, and throughout the universe. The goal of this postdoctoral program is to train Sun-Earth system researchers, preference is given to research projects that cross the traditional Heliophysics subdomains of the Sun, heliosphere, magnetosphere, and ionosphere/upper atmosphere, as well as sun-climate investigations.

Deadline: 6 January 2017

The objective of the program is to help create the next generation of researchers needed for climate studies. Desired research areas focus on observing, understanding, modeling, and predicting climate variability and change on seasonal and longer time scales. Preference is given to new graduates who are seeking their first fellowship and who have held a PhD for no more than three years.
