The Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad, Gujarat invites applications from eligible candidates for the 2nd Summer Training School on Planetary Sciences & Exploration from May 1 to June 30, 2020.
ISRO launched the highly successful Chandrayaan-1 mission to Moon in 2008, Mars Orbitor Mission in 2013 and Chandrayan-2 in 2019. Missions to Venus and Mars and other planetary bodies are being planned. Scientific experiments (payloads) are being developed for flying onboard these missions for studying the sub-surface, surface, atmospheric, and interplanetary processes.
For effective utilization of the data from these planetary missions and modeling of the processes, we are organizing the 2nd Summer Training School to introduce the participants to techniques of planetary science data retrieval, analysis, its modeling and instrument development for planetary missions.
Following topics would be covered in this school:
- Planetary Atmospheres Modeling & Simulation
- Design and Development of Instruments for Planetary Missions
- Remote Sensing Analysis of Planetary Bodies.
Who can Apply?
Ph.D. students, PDFs, young teachers and M. Sc. final year students (Physics/ Geology/ Geophysics/ Space Science/ Earth & Planetary Science/Atmospheric Science and allied fields), may apply online by uploading their CV and a one-page statement of purpose.
Selected participants will be provided II AC train fare, accommodation, and the fellowship of Rs. 12000 p/m for local and food expenses.
