1) Propose your location for the June 2014 CEDAR Workshop by August 15!


From Barbara Emery (emery at ucar.edu) and Dave Hysell (david.hysell@cornell.edu).

Proposals are being sought from institutions wishing to host the 2014 CEDAR workshop. The proposals may be free format but should conform to the constraints and address the issues raised below. Preference will be given to institutions with strong local CEDAR science communities, including a student base. This is an opportunity to promote and build CEDAR science at your institution. Please propose by Wednesday August 15 via email to emery@ucar.edu or on the cedar wiki at http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/Workshop:Workshop_Requirements

(NOTE: The CEDAR wiki suffered a power outage that damaged the main login board of the server machine, and is presently not available, but will hopefully be up soon.)

  • 1) The workshop must occur between the third and fifth week of June for ~380

total participants.

  • 2) Each proposal should identify a lead scientific contact and optional admin

contact.

  • 3) A venue capable of seating 500 people for plenary sessions must be available.
  • 4) Poster space for 40 8x4 posters (~1500 sq ft) must be available.
  • 5) Four extra rooms for workshops capable of seating ~100 people should be

available.

  • 6) Inexpensive options for housing ~130 students at approximately $50/night

should be locally available.

  • 7) The cost of airfare to the destination city or close-by (within ~2h) is a

consideration and should be addressed.

  • 8) The availability of restaurants within walking distance is advantageous and

should be addressed or the necessity to shuttle to relatively nearby (~10 min drive) restaurants

  • 9) Extracurricular activities nearby are also advantageous.
  • 10) Wireless internet connections are mandatory at the meeting site.
  • 11) Lodging for ~250 non-students relatively close to the meeting venue with

parking options described for the lodging and the meeting location(s).


(2) ESA Postdoctoral Fellowships in Space Science - applications due 1 Oct 2012.


From Guido De Marchi at (fellowship at rssd.esa.int) or <gdemarchi at 

rssd.esa.int>.

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. Areas of research include planetary science, astronomy and astrophysics, solar and solar-terrestrial science, plasma physics and fundamental physics. The fellowships have a duration of two years and are tenable at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, Netherlands, or at the European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC) in Villafranca del Castillo, near Madrid, Spain.

Applications are now solicited for fellowships in space science to begin in the fall of 2013. 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.

ESA fellows are enrolled in ESA's Social Security Scheme, which covers medical expenses, invalidity and death benefits. A monthly deduction covers these short-term and long-term risks.

The deadline for applications is 1 October 2012.

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 world-wide web at this address: http://www.rssd.esa.int/fellowship

Questions on the scientific aspects of the ESA Fellowship in Space Science not answered in the above pages can be sent by e-mail to the fellowship coordinator, Dr. Guido De Marchi, at the address fellowship@rssd.esa.int
