2023 CIDER Summer Program - APPLICATION DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 24
June 19 - July 14, 2023 University of California, Berkeley
“Causes and consequences of fluid and magma transport at plate boundaries”
CIDER announces a new summer program on behalf of the geosciences community
Organizers: Magali Billen, Jeff Freymueller, Greg Hirth, Terry Plank, and Jessica Warren
The CIDER 2023 summer program is funded by the NSF GeoPRISMS to synthesize results from GeoPRISMS and to look forward to SZ4D. The program will explore the causes and consequences of fluid and magma transport at plate boundaries. Lectures and tutorials are organized around three research themes: (1) role of aqueous fluid on fault interfaces at subduction zones and ridges; (2) magma production rates and tectonic interactions at subduction zones and ridges; (3) magma transport from the source to the crust. The goal is to synthesize past scientific results and to look forward to future research initiatives.
CIDER’s collaborative and interdisciplinary nature provides an ideal venue to introduce students and postdocs to exciting research challenges in the study of plate boundary processes. The Program brings together scientists at all stages of their careers and from across all disciplines to identify important research questions that can be advanced through interdisciplinary collaboration.
Like previous CIDER summer programs, the four-week program (June 19-July 14) is open to advanced graduate students and post-docs, as well as senior participants. The first two weeks are devoted to lectures and tutorials. The second two weeks are used to initiate collaborative group research projects.
This summer program will be held on the campus of University of California, Berkeley. Applications are invited for both senior and junior participants through the website. A direct link to the application form is https://tinyurl.com/CIDER2023application
The deadline for application is Friday, February 24.
