Applications are now open for the Summer School on Tropical Meteorology over West and East Africa, which is taking place in Kumasi, Ghana, from 21 July - 2 August 2019. This is an amazing opportunity for PhD and Masters students, early career researchers and new meteorologists.
This summer school is organised by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) African Science for Weather Information and Forecasting Techniques (SWIFT) programme (africanswift.org), and the Young Earth System Scientists (YESS) Community.
You will be taught by international experts in the field of tropical meteorology, from both academia and operational centres across the world. Daily lectures in African meteorology will cover a wide variety of themes, and will be followed by practical sessions and daily weather forecast discussions giving a hands-on learning experience. All activities are specifically designed to build your technical forecasting skills. The Summer School will provide a unique opportunity to interact with experts and learn alongside peers, and so form lasting working relationships.
The Summer School aims to provide all participants with the following:
PhD and Masters’ students, early-career researchers, and meteorologists who have joined the national meteorological services within the last 5 years (including breaks). A small number of full SWIFT scholarships are available for African nationals currently based in Africa. Please see the African SWIFT website for details.
Deadline for applications: 13 March 2019
