SCOSTEP Visiting Scholar (SVS)


  • The SCOSTEP Visiting Scholar (SVS) program is a new capacity building activity of SCOSTEP. Under this program, IIG shall host scientists/research scholars from abroad. The objective of the SVS program is to provide training to young scientists and graduate students from developing countries in well-established solar terrestrial physics laboratories and institutions, for periods of between one and three months. The SVS program complements the current scientific programs of VarSITI and SCOSTEP’s public outreach activities. The training will help the young scientists to advance their career in solar terrestrial physics using the technique/skill they learned during the training. SCOSTEP will provide the airfare, while it is expected that the hosting lab will provide the living expenses (accommodation, sustenance, ground transportation, visa fees and other incidentals). Trainees should have their own health insurance or arrange a provision with the host institution. The trainees will be selected on a competitive basis. Interested scientists/students from abroad who fulfils the above conditions can submit their complete CV along with their project proposals in a single PDF file to with a copy to Prof. D. S. Ramesh (Director, IIG) [email:] and to Dr. Marianna G. Shepherd email: [].
