ASTRON operates the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR), a cutting-edge, low-frequency, multi-field aperture array telescope that is using transformational technologies and novel software approaches to explore the Universe between 10-240 MHz. ASTRON also operates the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope (WSRT) used for observations at wavelengths from 3.6 to 92 cm (which will soon be equipped with the new widefield APERTIF receivers). JIVE is the main data processor centre of the European VLBI Network (EVN) and is leading the development of real-time e-VLBI in Europe. For more information see the institutes' websites.
The research grants will provide successful candidates with accommodation in the locality of the Observatory, a modest stipend for up to three months, and full travel reimbursement. We expect the participants to start early June 2015 to ensure overlap of the participants so they can fully benefit from the scheduled lectures and social activities.
Applications for the programme should be sent via the registration module at this website. Please note that two letters of reference are needed; names and contact information of referees should be filled in while registering. Deadline for applications is 2 February 2015.
