Jicamarca International Research Experience Program - JIREP 2015

The students will work with staff engineers and scientists on projects
related to ongoing research or instrumentation development programs.
Research may be conducted in neutral atmospheric and ionospheric science as well as radar/radio instrumentation and software development. Given its
location, frequency of operation, and array system, most JRO's research
capabilities are unique. Besides the unique research capabilities where
students are welcomed to propose and run their own experiments, JRO offers a good opportunity to get hands-on-experience on different aspects of radar
systems, from changing the antenna connections, improving RF components of the system, to develop sophisticated acquisition and processing programs.

A side benefit of the program is that students will get to know Peru,
heir to ancient cultures and rich colonial tradition. This program is
offered to junior/senior undergraduate and/or first and second year graduate
students and will cover the travel expenses (to and from Lima), as well as a
reasonable stipend. Given that the Observatory is located outside Lima city,
transportation will be provided.
