Task Description and Goals

Astronomical phenomena have intrigued people for thousands of years and have motivated students and researchers to investigate the underlying astrophysical mechanisms. With the recent advances in observational techniques and computing capabilities, astrophysical research has reached an unprecedented era to investigate detailed mechanisms in high spatial and temporal resolution. We study young stellar objects and their formation processes using theoretical, computational, and observational methods.
For more details, please visit our group site: CHARMS Group Page.
We look for highly-motivated students who show a strong interest in learning numerical methods and tools, code development techniques, and their applications to star formation problems under active investigation. The students will have hands-on experience in code development, numerical simulation, modeling, or observational diagnostic comparisons.

Required Background

Good knowledge of programming languages, such as Python, C/C++.
Background in college-level physics, chemistry, applied mathematics, or numerical methods.
Fluency in English communication is desired.
Knowledge of plotting or interactive visualization software
