Multimessenger Astrophysics Program at Rochester Institute of Technology

The Rochester Institute of Technology is offering a research program in Multimessenger Astrophysics, a newly developing discipline of astrophysics that combines gravitational wave astronomy and data analysis, scientific computing, and observational astronomy. Building upon its links to the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, including one faculty mentor who resides there, RIT aims to include at least two deaf and hard-of-hearing students among each year’s cohort of ten students. The program will last 10 weeks, from May 26 to August 1, and students will be provided with a $6000 stipend.
