Pulsar Candidate Follow-up Observing Sessions

As you find potentially interesting candidates in your data, please alert the scientists directly from the database! We will assemble a list of potential new pulsars and schedule follow-up observing on the GBT! We’ll announce these dates on the forum, and our home page. You can join us remotely for the session.

Annual Capstone Seminar

To celebrate your hard work in the PSC, many of our hub institutions are planning to host Capstone Seminars late this spring. Capstone Seminars give you the chance to experience campus life, find out more about STEM career paths and most importantly to share your work with your peers! You will be asked to work with members of your team to prepare a presentation about your work (this could be a poster or a short talk depending on how your hub plans its Capstone. By February 1, we will post dates and information on how to attend. We have some funds to offset your travel to capstone events at hub institutions or WVU.

Qualifications: To qualify for Capstone in 2018 you must be an active PSC member. That means that you must analyze 50 sets of plots. You will gain access to data plots AFTER you are certified.
