ESO Fellowship Programme: Application guidelines

The application deadline is October 15. To apply for the ESO Fellowship, you must first register using the on-line service available at the ESO recruitment portal. We encourage applicants to register to the on-line service well before the application deadline as this will allow to immediately trigger the request for the letters of support.

Candidates are asked to create a PDF using the ESO Fellowship Application Form. 

The form is available as Word, LibreOffice and Latex templates. Please also find here the instructions and guide-lines to the ESO Fellowship Application form. 

In summary, candidates are asked to include the following material as part of their application:

  • a cover/motivation letter;
  • the application form in PDF format filled in all the relevant parts;
  • the names and contact details of three persons familiar with your scientific work and willing to provide a recommendation letter. Referees will be automatically invited to submit a recommendation letter. However, applicants are strongly advised to trigger these invitations (using the web application form) well in advance of the application deadline.
