Following the success of the first ROSES offering in the depths of global
lockdown, we are pleased to announce the return of ROSES for mid-year 2021.
ROSES will run from June 7 to August 16, 2021. We welcome applications from
MS students, PhD students, early career researchers and lecturers, and
incoming graduate students that have already taken the IRIS Seismology
Skill Building Workshop https://www.iris.edu/hq/workshops/2021/01/ssb_2.
We will continue to cultivate the successful, cohort-based learning
environment while expanding accessibility globally – offering synchronous
and asynchronous options for lectures, facilitating regional working
groups, and providing a global forum for collaborative discussion.

This year, ROSES will consist of 11 sessions (an introduction + 10 topical
sessions) delivered via Zoom for live sessions and the ROSES YouTube
channel for asynchronous sessions and general access. Live sessions will
occur Tuesdays at 12pm EDT. Admission to the ROSES 2021 cohort will provide
access to live and recorded sessions, the community Slack channel, and
computational resource support. Applicants are expected to meet the
following criteria:

1. Be enrolled in / employed by an institution of higher education
and/or research

2. Be prepared to engage with at least 9 sessions and preferably all 11
sessions

3. Be prepared to complete pre-session reading and coding-based
pre-analysis assignments

4. Meet the computational proficiency requirements:

· Familiarity with Unix commands (note: Windows users are welcome!)

· Familiarity with the Python programming language

· Familiarity with the ObsPy Python toolbox

· General familiarity with Jupyter notebooks

· Access to a Unix-based computing environment with a conda
environment pre-installed (Note: ROSES will provide a cloud-based solution
for Windows users)

· Elementary knowledge of git and GitHub for accessing course
materials

Preference will be given to applicants who did not already participate in
ROSES 2020.
