After its success in the past two editions, ESO is now ready to launch its Summer Research Programme 2021. This fully-funded initiative is open to all university students not yet enrolled in a PhD programme from any country, although priority will be given to students from ESO Member States, Strategic Partners (Australia) and the Host State (Chile). Applications are now open with deadline 3rd of February 2021, 23:59 CET, and full details can be found on the Programme webpage.

Six projects spanning a variety of topics are being offered this year. The successful applicants will be invited to work at the ESO Headquarters in Garching near Munich, Germany, for six weeks between July and August 2021. Should the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic not be sufficiently favourable to allow an in-person visit, the programme will be held virtually instead.

The organizers will appreciate that this announcement is shared, so as to reach as many potential candidates as possible.
