XMM Newton Science Workshop 2018:
"Time-domain Astronomy: A High Energy View"

The XMM-Newton Science Operations Centre is organising the astrophysical

             Time-Domain Astronomy: A High Energy View

                       13th-15th June 2018
          European Space Astronomy Centre, Madrid, Spain

Many astronomical  objects are  variable.  Time variability  encodes key
information about the source  physics, complementary to that in spectra,
and essential for our  complete understanding of the phenomena involved.
With  the upcoming  multi-wavelength  time-domain monitoring  facilities
(Gaia, LSST,  ASAS, TESS, PanSTARRS,  SKA...) an enormous  potential for
multi-wavelength studies will soon  be available.  This workshop aims to
summarise the  current understanding of  the variability in  high energy
astrophysical  objects in order  to explore  the potential  synergy with
other  facilities  and  to   foster  cooperation  between  observers  in
different energy bands.

Registration  opening and  abstract submission  are planned  for January

More information will be posted at


ESA Research Fellowships in Space Science at ESAC
Deadline: 2nd October 2017

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 deadline for applications is

                           2nd October 2017

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.
The fellowships have a duration of two years, with a possible third year

Applications are now solicited for fellowships to begin in autumn 2018.
Preference will be given to applications submitted by candidates within
five years of receiving their PhD.

Research  opportunities  with XMM-Newton  science  staff include,  among
other, studies of  the high energy emission of  novae, 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

Please contact Norbert Schartel (Norbert.Schartel_at_sciops.esa.int) for
more details on ESA Research Fellowships related to XMM-Newton.

More  information on  the  ESA Research  Fellowship  programme in  Space
Science, on the  conditions and eligibility, as well  as the application
form can be retrieved from


Conditions of use for the XMM-Newton Image Gallery

The conditions of use for  the material available through the XMM-Newton
Image Gallery were synchronized  under ESA standards licence. Images can
be  used for  educational or  informational purposes  (e.g.  Wikipedia),
provided the user complies with the conditions and restrictions detailed
