*Announcement of Opportunity*

*The SCOSTEP Visiting Scholar (SVS) program*

Applications are invited to the SCOSTEP Visiting Scholar (SVS) program, 
a new capacity building activity of SCOSTEP (the Scientific Committee on 
Solar-Terrestrial Physics). The SVS program complements the current 
scientific program, VarSITI (Variability of the Sun and its Terrestrial 
Impact) and public outreach activities of SCOSTEP.


_The objective_

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 laboratories, for periods of 
between one and three months. Our aim is to fund 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 it is expected that the hosting lab will provide the 
living expenses (lodging, meals, ground transportation, visa fees and 
other incidentals). Trainees should have their own health insurance or 
arrange a provision with the host lab.

_Frequency:_ At least four scholars each year, starting in 2015.

_Application Procedure_

Please contact one of the SVS program listed below and work out the 
details of the visit. Once the applicant and the host agree on a visit, 
please prepare an application package including the following details of 
the visit: (i) work to be performed; (ii) dates of the visit and an 
estimate of the airfare in economy class; (iii) letter from the 
applicant’s supervisor, and (iv) letter from the host scientist. Prepare 
a single pdf file of the above materials and email it to: Dr. Marianna 
G. Shepherd (mshepher at yorku.ca <mailto:mshepher at yorku.ca>). All 
applications should be sent to the SCOSTEP Secretariat by not later than 
May 31, 2015. The applicant will be informed within three months after 
this date.
