The European Southern Observatory (ESO) is the foremost intergovernmental astronomy organisation in Europe and the world’s most productive ground-based astronomical observatory. ESO carries out an ambitious programme focused on the design, construction and operation of powerful ground-based observing facilities enabling astronomers to make important scientific discoveries at various sites in Chile, and its headquarters in Garching, Germany.
Australia has a 10 year Strategic Partnership enabling it to access ESO telescopes at La Silla Paranal Observatory, including the world-leading 8 metre Very Large Telescope. Australians may also apply for positions with ESO across all its operations on the same basis as member states. Working at ESO gives Australians exposure to sophisticated scientific and engineering skills and helps build formal and informal networks with European astronomers, engineers and colleagues in other big science organisations. Further details are available at ESO’s Recruitment Portal.
