*Announcement of Opportunity – SCOSTEP Visiting Scholar Program – 2016*

The SCOSTEP Visiting Scholar (SVS) program is a capacity building 
activity of SCOSTEP, which complements the current scientific program, 
VarSITI (Variability of the Sun and its Terrestrial Impact) and 
SCOSTEP’s public outreach activities.

*The objective*of the SVS program is to provide training to young 
scientists and graduate students from developing countries in 
well-established solar terrestrial physics institutes, for one to three 
months. SCOSTEP aims to fund at least four scholars each year, one 
related to each of the four SCOSTEP/VarSITI themes 
(http://www.varsiti.org/ ). The training will help the young scientists 
to advance their career in solar terrestrial physics using the 
technique/skill they learned during the training. SCOSTEP will provide 
the airfare, while the host institute will provide the living expenses 
(accommodation, sustenance, ground transportation, visa fees and other 
incidentals). Trainees should have their own health insurance or arrange 
a provision with the host institution.

Interested candidates should contact one of the SVS program hosts listed 
below and work out the details of the visit. Once the applicant and the 
host agree on a visit, the applicant needs to prepare an application 
package including the following details of the visit: /(i) work to be 
performed; (ii) applicant’s curriculum vitae, (iii) dates of the visit 
and an estimate of the airfare in economy class; (iv) letter from the 
applicant’s supervisor, and (v) a letter from the host 
scientist/institution/. A single pdf file of the above materials should 
be sent to SCOSTEP’s Scientific Secretary, Dr. Marianna G. Shepherd 
(mshepher at yorku.ca <mailto:mshepher at yorku.ca>)*. Deadline for 
applications:_May 25, 2016_.* The applicant will be informed about the 
SVS Selection Committee’s decision within three months after this date.
