Call for Concordia research MD Candidates

ESA issues research announcements at regular intervals. These announcements are the official access routes for institutional users to use the research facilities managed by ESA's Directorate of Human Spaceflight. Announcements of Opportunity are issued for each discipline: physical sciences, life sciences, technology, Earth observation and space science. Some announcements are coordinated with our International Space Station partners, for example in specific areas of life and physical sciences. These International Announcements of Opportunity allow for a worldwide scientific competition and cooperation, by forming the best scientific teams, as well as offering access to the instruments from all Space Station partners. The European announcements refer to pre-competitive application areas frequently involving European industries.


Call for Concordia research MD Candidates 
Every year since 2005 ESA has been sponsoring a medical doctor to spend almost one year on the Antarctic Concordia station run by the French IPEV polar institute and the Italian PNRA Antarctic programme. In order to pursue ESA related activities at Concordia, ESA releases a call for candidates with a medical degree to fill the Research MD position for the next Concordia Winter-Over crew of 2019.
