The European Science Foundation (ESF) invites applications for a Science Officer - GeoSciences for the European Collaborative Research Scheme (EUROCORES)

The European Science Foundation (ESF) is an association of 75 major national research organisations in 30 European countries, with offices in Strasbourg (France) and Brussels (Belgium).

ESF is the platform for its Member Organisations for joint science strategy development. It acts as a catalyst for the development of science by bringing together leading scientists and funding agencies to debate, plan and implement new pan-European scientific and science policy initiatives.

The European Collaborative Research (EUROCORES) scheme allows research funding organisations in Europe and beyond to support top-class research across all scientific areas, by matching the needs articulated by the scientific community with their strategic priorities. The scheme provides a flexible framework for researchers from Europe to address questions which are the best addressed in larger-scale collaborative research programmes. The EUROCORES scheme is currently supported by the EC Sixth Framework Programme.
