Published: 20 Feb 2018
Period 101 Call for Proposals

ESO offers a wide range of opportunity to young astronomers to help develop their careers, including including summer and winter astronomy camps for high school students, internships for masters students, PhD studentships and research fellowships. The Director General tells us more about each of these schemes in the latest entry of the ESO Blog.

In particular, ESO’s Studentships provide a valuable opportunity for young astronomers to gain experience at the most productive ground-based astronomical observatory in the world. ESO PhD students work alongside post-doctorate fellows, senior astronomers and engineers in a creative, collaborative and truly international environment, in which their careers are encouraged to blossom. In ESOcast 149 we hear from some of ESO’s current students about their experience at ESO, and their advice to those considering following in their footsteps.
