Australian Gemini Undergraduate Summer Studentships

The Australian Gemini Office at the Australian Astronomical Observatory is
pleased to announce that applications are now open for the 2014/15 
Gemini Undergraduate Summer Studentships (AGUSS) program. AGUSS provides an
exciting research opportunity for students who have completed at least 
two years
of an undergraduate degree in Physics, Maths, Astronomy or Engineering. 
will spend 10 weeks in the period Dec 2014 - Feb 2015 based in La 
Serena, Chile
carrying out a research project under the supervision of Gemini 
Observatory staff,
and visit both the Gemini South 8m telescope and the Magellan 6.5m 

We would be grateful if ASA members could bring this to the attention of 
suitably experienced undergraduates they may be teaching or supervising, 
encourage them to apply. A poster promoting this opportunity is 
available for
download at http://ausgo.aao.gov.au/new_aaosf_aguss_poster2.pdf

AGUSS applicants must be Australian citizens or permanent residents 
enrolled at
an Australian university. The Australian Gemini office will pay the 
return airfare
from the student's home city in Australia to the town of La Serena, 
Chile, and
provide a stipend of approximately A$700 per week. Full details on how 
to apply, together with the experiences of past AGUSS recipients, are 
available at:


The closing date for applications is *Friday 29 August 2014*. Please
