Recent Ph.D. recipients in atomic and molecular physics, geophysics, the solar system, astronomy, astrophysics or cosmology, with interests in theory, observation, instrumentation and/or laboratory research are invited to apply for the CfA Postdoctoral Fellowship.
CfA-LCOGT Joint Fellowship
The Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) and the Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope (LCOGT) have together joined the
Pan-STARRS-1 Science Consortium and now invite applications for joint CfA/LCOGT Postdoctoral Fellowships. CfA-LCOGT Fellowships are for four years, with two year spent at the CfA in Cambridge, MA and two years spent at LCOGT near Santa Barbara, CA.
The Clay Research Fellowship is available at the CfA in Cambridge
beginning in summer or autumn of each year. Research programs include
instrumentation, observation, and theory in atomic and molecular
physics, geophysics, the solar system, stars, galaxies, and cosmology.
Techniques used range from computer simulations through observations in
the radio, infrared, optical, ultraviolet, X- and gamma-ray bands, to
instrument development and laboratory experiments.
Applications are invited for Postdoctoral Research Positions in the
Institute for Theory and Computation (ITC) at CfA. One of the primary
objectives of the ITC is to integrate conceptual theory with
computational modeling; therefore, the Institute is interested in
candidates working in any field related to theoretical and/or numerical
The Department of Astronomy and the Harvard College Observatory (HCO), within the CfA, announce the new Donald H. Menzel Postdoctoral Fellowship in Astrophysics. Candidates with an exceptional record of research in all fields of astrophysics, particularly theory, are encouraged to apply.
Submillimeter Array Fellowship
Applications are invited for the Submillimeter Array Postdoctoral
Fellowships at the CfA. Aimed chiefly at research using the
Submillimeter Array (SMA), a pathfinding instrument comprised of eight
6-meter antennas on Mauna Kea, Hawaii, designed for high spatial and
spectral resolution investigations at submillimeter wavelengths of a
wide range of astrophysical phenomena (including Solar System bodies,
protoplanetary disks, star-forming regions, evolved star envelopes, the
Galactic Center, nearby galaxies, and ultraluminous galaxies at
cosmological distances), these appointments encourage Fellows to propose
and participate in science observations with the SMA and
provide access to all CfA facilities.
ITAMP Postdoctoral Fellowship
The Institute for Theoretical Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (ITAMP) Postdoctoral Fellowship supports up to two promising scientists each year who have recently received a Ph.D. degree and wish to carry out research theoretical atomic, molecular and optical physics at the Institute. Unlike most postdoctoral appointments, the possible research topics are not constrained by contract or grant requirements. The Fellowship Appointment is for two years with possible renewal for a third year.
