ESA Postdoctoral Fellowships in Space Science

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. 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 summer or fall of 2010. 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.

The deadline for applications is 1 October 2009.

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 Programme 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


(2) 2nd International High Energy Particle Precipitation in the Atmosphere (HEPPA) Workshop, 6-8 October 2009, Boulder, CO, Registration & Abstract Deadline: 14 August 2009.


From Cora Randall (cora.randall@lasp.colorado.edu).

Please join us for a three-day workshop focused on observational and modeling studies of atmospheric and ionospheric changes caused by energetic particle precipitation (EPP). The workshop will be located at the base of the Rocky Mountains in Boulder, Colorado, USA, at the National Center for Atmospheric Research Center Green facility. Conference hotels are within walking distance. If you have not already registered, we hope to hear from you soon!

Registration & Abstract Deadline: 14 August 2009 URL: http://www.acd.ucar.edu/Events/Meetings/HEPPA/ Contact: Cora Randall (cora.randall@lasp.colorado.edu)

The workshop will consist of invited tutorials to bring together people from various disciplines, invited talks, contributed talks, and contributed posters. Sessions and invited speakers are listed below; sessions 2-7 are open for submissions:

1. Invited Tutorials (Daniel Baker, Richard Mewaldt, Janet Green, Martin Friedrich, Stanley Solomon, Gabrielle Stiller, and David Siskind) 2. Precipitating Particle Sources (Invited: Gang Lu) 3. EPP effects on the Thermosphere & Ionosphere (Invited: Marty Mlynczak) 4. Direct EPP effects on the middle and lower atmosphere (Invited: Pekka Verronen) 5. Indirect EPP effects and atmospheric coupling, including climate effects (Invited: Don Smart) 6. Future measurements and aviation hazards (Invited: Scott Bailey, Peggy Shea) 7. Second HEPPA model/measurement comparison workshop (led by Bernd Funke and Manuel Lspez Puertas)

On behalf of the HEPPA 2009 local and science organizing committees: Lynn Harvey, Charles Jackman, Manuel Lopiz-Puertas, Dan Marsh, Cora Randall, Craig Rodger, Stan Solomon, Esa Turunen, Pekka Verronen


(3) IRI 2009 Workshop, November 2-7, in Kagoshima, Japan, abstracts and free registrations due 1 Sep. From Dieter Bilitza (dieter.bilitza-1@nasa.gov). See also http://www.ep.sci.hokudai.ac.jp/~iri2009/Workshop2.htm.


From Dieter Bilitza (dieter.bilitza-1@nasa.gov) and Shigeto Watanabe (shw@ep.sci.hokudai.ac.jp)

The 2009 URSI/COSPAR Workshop on the International Reference Ionosphere (IRI) will be held at Kagoshima University in Kagoshima, Japan from November 2 to 7, 2009. The meeting is open as the primary venue for improvement of the IRI representation of ionospheric parameters, such as electron density, electron temperature, ion composition, ion temperature, ion drift, and total electron content (TEC). The special emphasis of the 2009 Workshop will be on two topics: regional modeling of the ionosphere and ionosphere/atmosphere/geosphere coupling studies for improvements of IRI. Other topics of interest for the workshop include comparisons of IRI with other models and with satellite and ground observations, and applications of the IRI model in science, engineering and education. Presentations concerning the most recent additions to IRI and newly proposed additions are especially welcome, e.g., traveling ionospheric disturbance, storm-time ionosphere, ion drift, spread-F, and plasmasphere. The 2009 Workshop is of particular importance because of preparations for the next version of the model: IRI-2010. It is expected that a selection of papers from the workshop will be published in a dedicated issue of the Journal of Advances in Space Research.

Kagoshima is one of the major cities in the South of Japan located on the Kyushu island and often compared with its Italian sister city Naples due to a similarly mild climate, palm tree lined streets, and towering volcano Sakurajima, Kagoshima's Vesuvius.

Programme Committee: B. Reinisch (UML), D. Bilitza (NASA), S. Watanabe (Hokkaido University), T. Abe (JAXA), H. Liu (Hokkaido University), T. Maruyama (NICT), M. Yamamoto (Kyoto University), J.Y. Liu (Taiwan Central University), L. Liu (Chinese Academy of Sciences), K.W. Min (KAIST)

More information about the workshop can be found on the workshop homepage at http://www.ep.sci.hokudai.ac.jp/~iri2009/Workshop2.htm. Registration Deadline: 1 September 2009 (No registration fee will be charged). Abstract Deadline: 1 September 2009.
