ESO Engineering and Technology Research Fellowships – 2017

Published: 15 Nov 2016

A strong Research and Development (R&D) programme is at the core of ESO's mission to build and operate state-of-the-art facilities for the advancement of astronomical research. Following the framework of the prestigious Fellowship Programme, ESO is awarding one postdoctoral fellowship to an outstanding early-career young researcher in engineering or technical disciplines to further develop her/his independent research programme by joining one of the on-going projects.

Second Announcement of the ALMA Band 1 Science Workshop

Published: 02 Nov 2016

Second Announcement of the ALMA Band 1 Science Workshop
ASIAA, Taipei, (Taiwan), 16-18 January 2017

The ALMA Band 1 Science Workshop will take place at the ASIAA (Academia Sinica, Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics) in Taipei (Taiwan) from January 16 to 18 2017. It will consist of a few invited talks on the main scientific goals of ALMA Band 1, plus contributed talks. We also plan to have poster sessions. The ALMA Band 1 Science workshop will provide the first opportunity to show the exciting new science ALMA Band 1 can deliver and to start preparing for the first observing proposals in the ALMA lowest frequency band.
