How to get involved

Join us in the exploration of our planet by becoming part of the vibrant scientific community at the Science Hub. Our facility welcomes scientists from all domains of EO and Earth system science. Here’s how you can engage with the diverse opportunities Science Hub has to offer:


    • ESA post-doctoral Research Fellows: The core of the Science Hub is an interdisciplinary team of ESA research fellows. ESA’s post-doctoral Research Fellowship programme offers young scientists and engineers the possibility to carry out research for two years in a variety of disciplines related to Earth science and EO technology. ESA Research Fellowship opportunities are published on our recruiting site throughout the year. Set up a job alert to be informed as soon as the opportunities are published! Learn more about the recruitment process at ESA.

    • ESA Living Planet Fellowship: Science Hub proudly hosts post-doc researchers awarded a Living Planet Fellowship contract from the European Space Agency (ESA). If you are an LPF research fellow seeking a collaborative hub to enhance your work, consider the Science Hub as your scientific home. Connect with peers, leverage cutting-edge resources, and contribute to the global dialogue in Earth Science. Keep an eye for the annual opportunity to participate in the Living Planet Fellowship Programme.

    • Visiting Scientists Opportunities: The Science Hub embraces cooperation with Visiting Scientists from ESA member states and beyond. ESA Invitations to Tender for science activities include dedicated opportunities for ESA PIs and partner institutions to undertake collaborative science studies at the Science Hub in close collaboration with ESA experts. Bring your expertise to our collaborative hub and expand your horizons with an experience within ESA. Stay tuned for announcements on upcoming opportunities on esa star page.

    • Scientific Challenges: Dive deep into specialized topics in Earth Science through our training challenges and workshops conducted in collaboration with key scientific institutions and experts. These focused sessions address specific facets of geoscience and remote sensing, providing a platform for in-depth discussions and skill enhancement. Your research group and students can benefit from these events by participating in hands-on Earth Science sessions that blend academic rigor with practical insights. Stay tuned for announcements on upcoming workshops or contact us to request a workshop at the Science Hub.
