Summer Research Projects

Summer projects can be offered to exceptionally talented undergraduate/master-level students willing to undertake a short research project. We preferentially seek students who have previously obtained research experience in Astrophysics, demonstrate ability to work independently and developed good coding skills in Python/IDL.
