As a country often hit by weather disturbances, studying climate and all the sciences involving space is very integral. We know agencies like America’s National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency as some of the global leaders in exploring this field. While it isn’t as big as these agencies yet, we also have a space agency of our own—the  Philippine Space Agency. And if you’re interested in what they do, you’re in luck because it has announced that it is looking for more people to join the team.

On Nov. 20, the agency posted job vacancies for legal assistants, administrative and human resource management officers, and information officers. It is also looking for a lawyer, accountant, budget officer, cashier, records officer and senior science research specialist. Those interested may turn in their applications until Nov. 29. 

We’re looking for more people to join our team. 22 new positions have opened. Please read each image for the complete details.

Deadline of Application: 29 November 2020

All applicants must send their letter of intent addressed to the agency’s director-general, an updated personal data sheet, diploma and transcript of records, certificate of eligibility, license or rating, training certificates, and employment certificate. Those who have performance ratings from their previous work’s most recent rating period must also submit a copy of it together with their application. These requirements should be in PDF form and emailed to [email protected] with “Job Application: Position(Department)_Surname” in the subject line.

Established under Republic Act 11363 last year, the Philippine Space Agency will centralize all space science and technology applications in the country. It will be in charge of crafting and implementing space policies, research, and other related development programs. 

The agency’s main focus is on six areas: national security and development, hazard management and climate studies, space research and development, space industry capacity building, space education and awareness, and international cooperation.
