Scholarship Description: Intensive courses in astrophysics, solar and heliospheric physics, and planets and small bodies provide a deep insight into the research topics of the school. The compulsory program also includes courses in methods of computational physics and data analysis, instrumental methods, and basic scientific techniques with practical exercises and tutorials. These courses are intended to introduce all students to the various aspects of solar system research and to bring them to a comparable level of knowledge. Courses are repeated on a two-year interval.

The main curricular elements of the research school are three to four weeks per year of intensive block courses on all aspects of solar system physics and scientific techniques, a fortnightly half-day seminar, in which the students regularly report on the progress of their work and scientists give tutorial talks, a yearly one-week retreat (summer school) of the whole school with courses and lectures of general relevance.

Scholarship Application Deadline: 31 July 2011
