ESA RF mentors at STScI

ESA Research Fellows (RFs) are independent researchers who collaborate with Faculty Members, including other Research Fellows and ESA staff members, as well as the many world-class researchers based at Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

ESA staff scientists serve as the primary mentor for ESA Research Fellows.

Also check out the key areas of research at ESAC (Madrid) and ESTEC (Netherlands), where ESA science RFs are also hosted.
