Fizeau exchange visitors program in optical interferometry - call for applications

Josef Hron & Peter Abraham

European Interferometry Initiative

The Fizeau exchange visitors program in optical interferometry funds (travel and accommodation) visits of researchers to an institute of his/her choice (within the European Community) to perform collaborative work and training on one of the active topics of the European Interferometry Initiative. The visits will typically last for one month, and strengthen the network of astronomers engaged in technical, scientific and training work on optical/infrared interferometry. The program is open for all levels of astronomers (Ph.D. students to tenured staff), with priority given to PhD students and young postdocs. Non-EU based missions will only be funded if considered essential by the Fizeau Committee.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to seek also partial support from their home or host institutions.

The deadline for applications is October 15. Fellowships can be awarded for missions to be carried out between December 2017 and May 2018!

Further informations and application forms can be found at:

The program is funded by OPTICON/H2020.

Please distribute this message also to potentially interested colleagues outside of your community!

Looking forward to your applications,
