CASS Scientific Visitors
CASS welcomes visitors to the Astophysics Group. Visits can be supported through the CASS Scientific Visitor program. The Visitors program provides some financial and logistical support to facilitate working visits to the CASS Astrophysics group. Financial support typically covers the cost of on-site accommodation or its equivalent (~$500/week). Visitors are normally the guest of a member of the CASS staff with whom they will be working. Visitors may be located at any of the ATNF sites. Visitors are expected to deliver at least one colloquium or seminar during their stay at the CASS.
Visits should normally be no shorter than two weeks and could last for up to one year. Support provided could be purely logistical (e.g. office space, computing) or include some level of financial support.
We particularly encourage extended visits of 6 or 12 months. For these there is the possibility to seek additional funds through CSIRO. Please contact the chair of the Visitors committee for more information.
Potential visitors should make contact with a local member of staff or the chair of the Visitors committee, Simon Johnston, to develop a proposal. Proposals to the program should include a brief description of the collaborative project to be conducted during the visit, an estimate of the dates of the visit and support required, and a current CV plus list of publications. Proposals are reviewed quarterly (Feb, May, Aug and Nov).
