	  - 2nd VILSPA SAS Workshop
	  - Research Fellowship at the XMM-Newton Science Operations Centre
2nd VILSPA SAS Workshop
The 2nd SAS Workshop will be held in VILSPA from October 9 to October 11 2002.
It aims at providing XMM-Newton users, having no or little experience of
XMM-Newton data analysis, with an introduction to the procedures and
techniques to successfully reduce and analyze XMM-Newton data.

Details on the workshop program, together with the registration forms, are
available at the URL:


Deadline for registration is August 30, 2002. Interested persons are invited
to register as soon as possible. The attendance is strictly limited to 20
persons, to ensure proper support during the practical training sessions.
The available places will be filled on a strict "first-register, first-serve"
basis. Those who register after all the available places have been filled,
will be automatically enrolled to the next Workshop, to be held probably a few
months later.

Research Fellowship at the XMM-Newton Science Operations Centre

The European Space Agency offers Astronomers and Space scientists the 
possibility of Post-doctoral Research Fellowships. Details of the program can 
be found at: 


Within this program a second ESA Internal Research Fellowship will be available 
at the XMM-Newton Science Operations Centre (Villafranca near Madrid).
The interviews are tentatively planned for September 2002. It is expected that 
the successful candidate carries out research projects based on XMM-Newton data.

Applicants for this post should have a PhD in astrophysics or equivalent 
qualification in a relevant discipline. Experience in medium to high resolution 
X-ray spectroscopy and/or Active Galactic Nuclei is desirable
