XMM-Newton Conference: "The X-ray Universe 2014"

The  XMM-Newton  Science  Operations  Centre  is  organising  a major
astrophysical symposium

           from Monday 16th to Thursday 19th June 2014

in Dublin, Ireland.

The symposium is  the fourth 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 is available via the conference web page:


The First Announcement will be sent in November 2013.

XMM-Newton Workshop "The Fast and the Furious":
Presentations and Posters available on-line

The XMM-Newton  Science workshop "The Fast and  the Furious: Energetic
Phenomena in Isolated Neutron Stars, Pulsar Wind Nebulae and Supernova
Remnants" was held at ESAC from  22nd to 24th May 2013, with more than
80 registered  participants.  Presentations and  posters are available
on-line at


and stored in the ADS database under


Refereed proceedings  are under preparation and will  appear next year
as an issue of Astronomical Notes / Astronomische Nachrichten.

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 and
Robotic Exploration Programmes. The fellowships have a duration of two

Applications  are now solicited  for fellowships  in Space Science to
begin in  the fall of 2014.  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

                          1st October 2013

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 at:


Let us know about XMM-Newton related Ph.D.

The XMM-Newton team is  collecting information about the completion of
doctorates and  Ph.D. theses  based on (or  making use  of) XMM-Newton
observations.  Ideally,  it is our  intention to collect  the complete
list of Ph.D.  works based on  XMM-Newton data and this is why we need
your help.

We would  appreciate if  you -  being a candidate  or supervisor of a
doctorate - could let us know the following details:

- Year of the thesis
- Candidate's name
- Supervisor's name
- Institution
- Thesis Title
- Statement that the thesis is either based on, or making use of,
   XMM-Newton observations

Please contact us through the Helpdesk at:


sending an e-mail with Subject:  "Ph.D. thesis work".  The message can
be flagged as private.  In  any case, all provided information will be
handled confidentially.

Yours sincerely,

XMM-Newton SOC
