Harvard Fellowship for Future Faculty Leaders: Application

We seek individuals who will develop and carry out an independent research program in astronomy, and whose research will also contribute to increasing representation and inclusion in these fields through teaching, mentoring, research advising, and public outreach. The program also targets individuals who may bring unconventional perspectives to their fields of research, may have critical insights that result from alternative paths to academia, and whose background will contribute to increasing representation at Harvard and in the national community of astronomers.
