For university students
Undergraduate Research School
Between 14th -18th December 2009 the RAS and the University of Central Lancashire will fund up to 20 third and fourth year undergraduates in astronomy, astrophysics, physics, mathematics or computer science to spend a week with the researchers at UCLan.
The researchers of the Astrophysics Institute engage in a range of research activities applying modern techniques, including high-performance computing and 3D visualisation, to contemporary problems in science. Participants will engage in seminars, discussions and practical exercises while there will also be ample opportunities to discuss career options with the staff and students of the Institute.
