RF Mentors - ESAC Science Faculty
ESAC FACulty Research Fellow Mentors
This page lists the key areas of scientific research for members of the ESAC Science Faculty. These ESA staff scientists can all serve as the primary mentors for ESA Research Fellows. Unless otherwise indicated, they are located at ESAC, Madrid. Those marked "STScI" are instead located in Baltimore, USA.
Additional collaboration with other Faculty Members, particular current Research Fellows, on-site contractor scientists and researchers at the Centro de Astrobiología (CAB), is of course also encouraged.
A list of some active research groups is given in the Faculty Science page.
