External Award: ESA Research Fellowships in Space Science

July 18, 2017

The European Space Agency (ESA) Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Programme is aimed at providing young scientists, holding a PhD or the equivalent degree, with the means to perform research in space science. The programme is open to suitably qualified applicants who have completed their PhD (or equivalent) or will have completed it by the start of the fellowship (Fall 2018). Preference will be given to applications submitted by candidates within five years of receiving their PhD.

The research projects proposed by applicants for an ESA Fellowship should be related to ESA's scientific missions, to the space research programmes of the ESA member states, or to the scientific activities of the ESA Science Faculty. A brief summary of the research activities carried out by Faculty members can be found on the ESTEC faculty research and ESAC faculty research pages or at the research program overview page. Candidates should consult these pages to identify which of the two centres offers the best overlap with their research programmes and to identify one or more staff members who could act as mentors. While certain research programmes can be pursued at both centres, in most cases the location of the mentor defines where a fellowship can be held. Candidates are strongly encouraged to contact the identified staff members to discuss their research proposals before submitting an application.

The application deadline is October 2, 2017. For more information, please see their website.
