100 doctoral and post-DOCTORAL RESEARCH GRANTS
This year CNES will be allocating some 100 doctoral and post-doctoral research grants in all fields of science and technology vital to space projects. Doctoral and post-doctoral research grants help CNES to further its science and technology aims by advancing technologies required to support ongoing and future space programmes. Grant applications for French and Foreigners students will be accepted until 31 March.
These young research scientists are working at one of CNES’s field centres, with its industry partners or in laboratories at universities and public research bodies. From conception of instruments flown on satellites to the study of new modes of propulsion or exploitation of science data from CNES satellites, they are helping to nurture and sustain an environment of science excellence at CNES and across the broader space community.
Since CNES’s inception, more than 2,200 students have benefited from this research programme and gone on to careers as research scientists or engineers in academia or industry. The common denominator all of them share is that they have chosen to work in a cutting-edge sector focused on the future and innovation.
We will answering questions live ON @cnes #askcnes
CNES will be answering questions live from students, research scientists, firms and Internet users on Twitter on Wednesday 9 March from 9:30 to 12:00 a.m. They will be able to chat in English and French with CNES personnel from the Directorate of Innovation, Applications and Science (DIA), in charge of doctoral and post-doctoral research, on its @CNES account with the hashtag #askCNES.
