Student Opportunities

CCMC Student Research Contest

The Community Coordinated Modeling Center (CCMC) and National Science Foundation (NSF) are pleased to announce the first CCMC Student Research Contest.

We invite undergraduate and graduate students who are using (or have recently used) CCMC tools and services in a research project to enter the contest. We also encourage students who used the CCMC tools in a project as a part of their coursework to apply.

A winner will be invited to present their work at the 2012 SHINE workshop, and receive travel support.

The report (not to exceed 12 pages) should include a problem statement, which CCMC tools were used and how, description of the results, discussion, conclusions, and references. The report should include figures (generated with CCMC visualization tools) to convey the results in a clear and interesting manner. Ideally, a report can be used as a base for a paper.

Deadline for report submission is May 1, 2012. The reports will be evaluated and winners selected by mid May.

Space Physics Opportunities Register for Students A small group of GEM and SHINE students have developed a register of opportunities for graduate students in space physics – conferences, workshops, summer schools, postdoc/teaching job openings. There is also an REU section for undergraduate students. Visit SPOReS at The site accepts announcements of opportunities in the above categories. All contributions are welcome, send them to
