28th session of ERCA in Grenoble from January 12th, 2020 to February 8th 2020

Written by ca no comments

The 28th session of ERCA (European Research Course on Atmospheres) that will take place in Grenoble (& at the astronomical Observatory of Haute-Provence) from January 12th, 2020 to February 8th.
ERCA is intended for students enrolled in PhD programs, young scientists and engineers from universities and public/private research institutes wishing to complete their formation with a broad research course related to Atmosphere, Climate and Climate change studies.


ERCA is intended as a multidisciplinary course, centered on atmosphere and climate, yet extending clearly out of this scope to the social aspects of global change, to space weather, to hydrology and oceanography, to environmental chemistry and biogeochemistry.
The practical activities (at OHP and in Grenoble) centered on atmospheric observations and data analysis (python based) make up a third of the program, bridging the gap from individual measurement techniques to observation networks to data usage
One fifth of the time is devoted to a strong collective project letting you work on a collaborative research proposal.

A limited number of student assistantships will be available in particular for students from emerging countries

Please forward this announcement to doctorate students around you.
