Application for TMT Workshop
Santa Cruz, California — August 22-29, 2017
Preparing TMT Future Science and Technology Leaders:
An Annual Workshop for Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Researchers
The Thirty Meter Telescope International Observatory is hosting an 8-day workshop at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC), starting the morning of Tuesday, August 22 through Tuesday, August 29. The workshop will include talks by TMT leaders on topics such as project management, hands-on activities to engage in authentic engineering practices and instrument design strategies, and multiple activities to gain experience with teamwork and collaboration. UCSC is the headquarters site of the University of California Observatories. The campus hosts multiple lab facilities supporting astronomical instrumentation, as well as scientists and engineers helping to define science requirements and instrument concepts for the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT). The workshop will include tours to Lick Observatory and the UCSC Laboratory for Adaptive Optics. We are looking for astronomy and engineering graduate students and post-doctoral researchers who are able to come to UCSC for the entirety of the workshop and are interested in helping us shape our international training program for scientists and engineers in the TMT collaboration.
Priority application deadline:
First consideration will be made for applications submitted by 23:00 UT (16:00 Pacific Time) on FRIDAY, APRIL 14, 2017.
