The Space Telescope Science Institute invites applications for the Riccardo Giacconi Postdoctoral Fellowship. The Giacconi Fellowship provides up to three years of support for outstanding postdoctoral researchers in any field of astronomy, astrophysics, or planetary science. The research may be theoretical, observational, or instrumental. The fellowship includes a salary of approximately $55,000, generous benefits, and $16,000 per year to cover research expenses. The selection will be based on the accomplishments and proposed research of the applicants. There are no restrictions on citizenship or date of PhD degree.
Applications must include the following materials: a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a summary of previous and current research (limited to 3 pages), and a description of the proposed research to be carried out at STScI (also limited to 3 pages). These should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org in the form of a single pdf file designated by the last name of the applicant (such as jones.pdf). Applicants must also arrange for three letters of reference to be sent as separate pdf files by email to the same address. These letters must be transmitted directly by the writers, not the applicants.
Online application form will become available in September, and applications are commonly due early in November.
