ESO Studentship Programme

The European Southern Observatory awards several studentship positions each year in both Germany and Chile. The goal of the ESO studentship program is to connect Ph.D. students and their advisors throughout the ESO community with the activities and people at one of the world’s foremost observatories, and offers an invaluable training opportunity for the next generation of Astronomers and users of ESO facilities.

There are two annual application deadlines: 30th April and 30th October.

Further details of the programme and a link to the application portal can be found at:

If you are interested please contact the ESO supervisor well in advance of the application deadline to coordinate your research project jointly with your home institute supervisor.
