XMM-Newton Conference: "The X-ray Universe 2011"
The XMM-Newton Science Operations Centre is organising a major
astrophysical symposium from Monday 27th to Thursday 30th of June 2011
in Berlin, Germany.
The symposium is the third international meeting in the series "The
X-ray Universe". The intention is to gather a general collection of
research in high energy astrophysics. The symposium will provide a
showcase for results, discoveries and expectations from current and
future X-ray missions.
More information, including details on the key dates for registration
and abstract submission will be announced later this year.
New version of the MOS redistribution calibration files
Version #75 of the MOS redistribution Current Calibration Files (CCF)
has been released. The need of this new version was driven by the end
of validity date of the previous CCF, version #74, accidentally set
Spectral analysis of MOS exposures with an observation date after
January 1, 2010, needs to be redone with the new CCF version, made
available in the public CCF data repository.

ESA Research Fellowships in Space Science at ESAC
Postdoctoral fellowships in the area of Astronomy and Astrophysics
related to the X-ray observatory XMM-Newton are tenable at the
XMM-Newton Science Operations Centre in the European Space Astronomy
Centre (ESAC) located in Villafranca del Castillo, near Madrid, Spain.
The European Space Agency awards several postdoctoral fellowships each
year. The aim of these fellowships is to provide young scientists,
holding a PhD or the equivalent degree, with the means of performing
space science research in fields related to the ESA Science Programme.
Preference will be given to applications submitted by candidates
within five years of receiving their PhD. Candidates not holding a PhD
yet are encouraged to apply, but they must provide evidence of
receiving their degree before starting the fellowship.
Research opportunities with XMM-Newton science staff include: studies
of the high energy emission of novae, (massive) stars, galaxies, and
AGN using XMM-Newton data. Working at ESAC within the XMM-Newton team
gives the unique opportunity of being in contact with the calibration
scientists, the developers of the analysis software and the User
Please contact Norbert Schartel (Norbert.Schartel@sciops.esa.int) for
more details on ESA Research Fellowships related to XMM-Newton.
The deadline for the current call for applications is 1 October 2010.

Science, on the conditions and eligibility, as well as the application
form can be found on the Internet at:
