*2019 SCOSTEP Visiting Scholar Program – Call for Applications *

From: Marianna Shepherd (mshepher[at]yorku.ca)

*The submission of applications for the 2019 SCOSTEP Visiting 
Scholarship is now open.*

The SCOSTEP Visiting Scholar (SVS) program is a capacity building 
activity of SCOSTEP (Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics), 
which complements SCOSTEP’s scientific programs (currently VarSITI, 
Variability of the Sun and its Terrestrial Impact, 
http://www.varsiti.org/) 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. 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.

Applications will be accepted in two categories, Category 1 – graduate 
students (MSc, PhD), and Category 2 – Postdoctoral fellows (PDFs) with 
experience up to 5 years from date of graduation at the time of 

Interested candidates should contact one of the SVS program hosts listed 
at http://www.yorku.ca/scostep/?page_id=2103, develop a project 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 described 
in the form of a 2-page proposal; (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 
recommendation letter from the host scientist/institution/indicating 
that the proposed work will be mutually beneficial.

A single pdf file of the above materials and indicating the category (1 
or 2) should be sent to SCOSTEP’s Scientific Secretary, Dr. Marianna G. 
Shepherd (mshepher[at]yorku.ca). Deadline for applications: *February 
20, 2019*.
