Summer course "Molecules in Space", Onsala Space Observatory

Summer course "Molecules in Space", Onsala Space Observatory, 25 June - 2 July 2013

The summer course "Molecules in space", which will be held at Onsala Space Observatory , Sweden from 25 June to 2 July 2013, aims to give participants a thorough introduction into the role of molecules in many astronomical environments such as

the early universe

star-forming regions and protoplanetary disks

atmospheres of plants and their satellites

cometary comae

the early universe

circumstellar envelopes

the early universe

supernova remnants

The event will be organised by the Nordic Network of Astrobiology. Observations at the 20m telescope at Onsala and exercises will complement the lecture programme. The programme of the summer school comprises:

lectures by internationally leading scientists covering a broad range of subjects in astrochemistry

observations of a small, cold molecular cloud using the 20m telescope at Onsala Space Observatory to determine its mass and whether it is going to collapse forming a star

state-of-the art model calculations of the chemistry of dark clouds and ice surfaces

usage of observations to determine physical parameters in astronomical object

a poster sessions for the participating students and early career scientists

The event is aimed for Ph. D. students and early career scientists (up to 5 years after their first Ph. D. in a related field) in fields relevant to astrochemistry and astrobiology. The event is open to applicants from all nationalities. Detailed information about the summer school and the application procedure (deadline 2 April 2013) can be found at the website of the course:

Successful applicants accepted by the organisers will receive free lodging, meals and excursions, but will have to organise financial means for their travel to and from Onsala themselves. Course credit awards (3 ECTS points) for Ph. D. students will be applied for by the course organisers.
