The Yale Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics invites applications for the YCAA Postdoctoral Prize Fellowship. Applicants must have received their Ph.D. by June 2018 in astronomy or astrophysics/cosmology. The Fellowship is for three years (renewed annually subject to performance) and offers competitive salary, benefits and research funds.
Yale offers a lively intellectual environment and access to world-class astronomical facilities, including the Keck, Palomar and SMARTS telescopes, and to Chilean telescopes through an ongoing Chilean collaboration. Yale is an institutional member of the SDSS-IV collaboration and the Fellow will have access to High-Performance Computing facilities at Yale.
Fellows are free to carry out their own research program, although research interests that intersect with those of the Yale astrophysics faculty (see ycaa.yale.edu/people/faculty) are preferred. Active research at Yale spans most areas in astrophysics and includes theoretical, observational and instrumentation efforts.
Applicants should apply online at http://apply.interfolio.com/43253 and must submit their curriculum vitae, bibliography, and a brief (max 3 pages) description of their anticipated research program by November 3, 2017. Candidates should also arrange for at least 3 letters of recommendation to be submitted to the above URL by November 3. Fellowship candidates will also be considered for any other open postdoctoral positions in astrophysics at Yale in their fields of interest, unless they ask to be considered only for the YCAA Fellowship.
