The European Space Agency (ESA), has launched the Call for Research
Proposals of the Living Planet Fellowship 2019.

Documentation and more information available here:

Closing Date

Your proposal and all supporting documents must be sent by e-mail to:
EOScience at esa.int
<EOScience at esa.int?subject=Living%20Planet%20Fellowship%202018%20Application>
 by no later than 01st of November 2019 (the Closing Date).

Any questions relating to this Call must be sent, by e-mail to
EOScience at esa.int
<EOScience at esa.int?subject=Living%20Planet%20Fellowships%202018%3A%20Request%20for%20Information>
, not later than two (2) weeks before the Closing Date.

The main objective of this initiative is to support young researchers who
hold a doctoral degree and would like to initiate a scientific career in
the context of Earth Observation and Earth System Science.

With this call, ESA plans to support a number of Post-Doctoral researchers
to carry out a research project at a Host Institution in an eligible ESA
Member State, with a ceiling price of 99KEuro for 2 years, under a
co-funding scheme.

Candidate researchers shall submit research proposals responding to one of
following Research Areas:

      1. Advancing Novel Methods and Techniques:

Targeted research projects aimed at developing innovative methods, novel
algorithms and new EO products and datasets, expanding the scientific use
of the Sentinel missions, the Earth Explorers, or the ESA long-term data
archives into new scientific areas and application domains.

Activities shall establish a solid basis to expand the missions product
portfolio and stimulate novel science results and innovative applications.

Priority will be given to developing and validating novel algorithms, data
processing techniques, advanced methodologies, and new EO-based products,
that maximise the exploitation of the new capabilities offered by the
Sentinel missions, the unique data offered by the Earth Explorers, the
long-term series of ESA data archives, also in combination with
meteorological and non-ESA missions.

      1. Advancing Earth System Science:

Cutting-edge scientific activities aimed at maximizing the scientific
impact of ESA and European missions in terms of new discoveries and
advances in Earth System Science, addressing the new challenges of the ESA
EO Science Strategy.

Projects shall contribute to answering major open questions in Earth System
Science, and shall address scientific challenges posed by international
Earth System Science communities and international science groups (e.g.,
WCRP, SOLAS, GCP, etc.).

Priority will be given to activities that maximise the scientific return of
ESA and European EO assets including Sentinel, Earth Explorers and Meteo
mission data, the long-term ESA archive and existing EO-based long-term
datasets (e.g., ESA project results).
