|Solar physics research funding opportunity available for graduate students|
The North Dakota NASA Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) will receive $50,000 in funding to establish a solar physics research group in North Dakota. This funding, which will begin in the May-June time frame, has one year of funding for an interested graduate student. A select group of faculty and students will visit the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center during the duration of this project to learn solar data analysis and data archiving techniques. This work will also be associated with the joint NASA/Japanese Hinode mission, which is a Sun-watching spacecraft that began orbital operations in 2006. Paul Hardersen, Department of Space Studies, will lead and coordinate the work on this project. Please contact him at 777-4896 or via e-mail at Hardersen@space.edu with any questions.
