The Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA), Cambridge/USA:

Postdoctoral Fellowships 2010

Deadline: October 29, 2010

The Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) invites applications for the CfA Postdoctoral Fellowship 2010, which will be awarded to an outstanding researcher displaying significant promise in theory, observation, instrumentation, and/or laboratory experiments. The CfA combines the resources and research facilities of the Harvard College Observatory and the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory under a single director. Now organized in six research divisions - Atomic and Molecular Physics; High Energy Astrophysics; Optical and Infrared Astronomy; Radio and Geoastronomy; Solar, Stellar, and Planetary Sciences; and Theoretical Astrophysics - nearly 350 Smithsonian and Harvard scientists work cooperatively in an environment that welcomes the ideas and contributions of young scientists. Appointments for 2 years, with renewal for a third year likely, contingent upon satisfactory progress. The stipend for 2011-2012 will be approximately $62,500 with a research budget of $16,000. Funds are also provided for health benefits and relocation expenses. Only applicants who receive their Ph.D. between July 1, 2010, and September 1, 2011, will be considered for a CfA Fellowship. Applicants must have at least one first-author refereed journal paper (submitted papers are acceptable) at the time of application.
