Dear Colleagues:

The 2017 Kavli Summer Program in Astrophysics will be held at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen from July 10th to August 18th next summer on the topic of “Astrophysics with gravitational wave detections”. The program is directed by Ilya Mandel and Enrico Ramirez-Ruiz, and the program lecturers are Will Farr, Cole Miller, and Deirdre Shoemaker.

For more information about the program, including details about its format and application forms, please see the program website.

The program will consist of a first week of pedagogical lectures and state-of-the-art seminars by senior participants (faculty and postdocs), followed by 5 weeks dedicated to collaborative and multidisciplinary research, with graduate students working on projects proposed by the long-term participants of the program.

This program is an outstanding venue for students to learn about a field in depth, and have the opportunity to work with leading faculty in the field. The students are chosen among the best applicants from all over the world. This is also an incredible opportunity for faculty and postdocs to meet the best of the next generation, and have the chance to mentor them. Many research projects lead to a publication.

The program is inviting applications from graduate students, postdocs and faculty to attend. Applications are competitive, as successful applicants will receive funding to enable them to participate. The deadline for student applications is February 1, 2017. Faculty/postdoc applications are reviewed on a monthly basis, until March 31st.

Sincerely yours,
Ilya Mandel and Enrico Ramirez-Ruiz
