We are seeking a student to work on specutils, the astropy affiliated package for spectrosopic data analysis, as part of the ESA Summer of Code in Space program (SOCIS)! 

The ESA Summer of Code in Space program (SOCIS; http://sophia.estec.esa.int/socis2013/) is designed to attract undergraduate and graduate developers to write code to for various space related open source software projects. It offers a sizeable remuneration of 4000 Euros for a coding period of 3 months (mid-August to mid-November). Astropy/specutils has been selected as a mentoring organizations and is now accepting applications (for details please go to https://github.com/astropy/specutils/wiki/SoCiS-2013-ideas; deadline is 4th of August). The Astropy Project is a community effort to develop a single core package for Astronomy in Python and foster interoperability between Python astronomy packages. Our SOCIS mentorship will focus on expanding the astropy-specutils package that is designed to deal with code that focuses on spectral data analysis. 

ESA has some eligibility criteria http://sophia.estec.esa.int/socis2012/?q=faq#socis_elig_restrictions.
