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
Support Group.

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 2011

More  information on the  ESA Research  Fellowship programme  in Space
Science, on the conditions and eligibility, as well as the application
form can be found on the Internet at:
