Job Details

The International Space Weather Camp (ISWC) is an opportunity to learn about space physics in the context of meeting a very practical need — to understand the influence of the Sun on the space and upper atmosphere of the Earth and its related impact on the technological systems and needs of modern society. This is a new, exciting, and emerging discipline called Space Weather, which has attracted the attention of the White House and senior leaders in government because of the importance of ensuring that our technology investments are properly protected against severe Space Weather. Over twenty students from Alabama, Germany, and South Africa participate in a multiple-week series of lectures, hands-on projects, experiments, and excursions as they learn both the theoretical underpinnings and practical applications of Space Weather and solar and space physics.

This course consists of three parts:

  • June 14th, 2024 - Mandatory Online pre-camp Session
  • June 17th to June 28th, 2024 - Camp dates at the University of Alabama in Huntsville campus, United States
  • June 30th to July 13th, 2024 - Camp dates at the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Neustrelitz, Germany

If your application is successful, eligible expenses including airfare, mileage, lodging (in Northern Germany at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and at The University of Alabama in Huntsville, USA), and tuition for the ISWC course will be covered.

  • Applicants must be a rising junior or senior undergraduate student or a graduate student enrolled full-time in a higher education institution in the southeastern U.S (in a state that is part of NSF EPSCoR), which includes Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, West Virginia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.

The project leverages Alabama’s laboratory and space plasma science expertise to contribute scientific knowledge, technologies, and workforce to Alabama’s aerospace, manufacturing, advanced materials, medical, bioscience, and agricultural sectors.
