The FCT Investigator programme aims to support the recruitment of outstanding researchers into Portugal’s R&D centres. Open to scientists of all nationalities, and across research fields, this highly competitive programme targets scientists with exceptional track-records and clear potential to develop innovative research. Close to 600 new FCT Investigators have been selected in the three previous calls. The 2015 call is expected to fund 200 new FCT Investigator grants. Deadline on 15th September 2015. Please, read further in the call webpage.
Also, note the deadline 2nd September 2015 to associate your project to our host institution, IA. More information regarding this here.
Several new sets of “User Provided Data Products” (UPDPs) have recently been ingested in the Herschel Science Archive and are available for retrieval. The number of UPDPs served by the HSA is gradually increasing. The full list of available UPDPs at any time is available here.
Also, the “ALMA/Herschel Archival Workshop” presentations are now available online here.
The first statistics on the ALMA Cycle 3 call for proposals points to a great European interest in this facility. European-led projects comprise 42% of the total proposed projects.
The pressure remains high since 9037h were requested for a total of <2100h to be granted to Cycle3-call projects.
Bands 3, 6 and 7 remain the most favourite ones, and, except for “Stellar Evolution and the Sun”, the general community seems equally engaged to eagerly work with ALMA data.
