CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
invites applications for
Postdoctoral Prize Fellowships in
Experimental Physics or Astrophysics
The Division of Physics, Mathematics and Astronomy offers a number of Prize
Fellowships at the Postdoctoral Scholar level in experimental physics or
astrophysics. In the case of astrophysics, only candidates whose focus is
primarily instrumental (not purely observational) will be considered. These
Fellowships usually begin in Fall 2015 and are for a three year duration.
They carry a competitive annual stipend and salary combination and
offer an annual research expense fund.
This fellowship program has been established to offer scientists, typically within a few years after receipt of the Ph.D., the opportunity to pursue new and innovative experimental research. It is expected that this research will require the support and use of facilities of one of the established experimental groups at Caltech. Currently, Caltech has groups working in:
|Astrophysical Detector Development||Atomic Physics|
|Condensed Matter Physics||Gravitational Physics|
|High Energy Astrophysics||High Energy Physics|
|Infrared & Submillimeter Astronomy||Low Energy Particle Physics|
|Microwave Background Observations||Neurobiology|
|Nuclear Physics||Quantum Optics|
|Radio Astronomy||Solar Physics|
|Surface Physics||Ultraviolet Astrophysics|
Please apply online. Electronic copies of the curriculum vitae with email address and with citizenship indicated, publications list (indicate articles which appeared in refereed journals), and statement of research interests are required. Electronic Portable Document Format (PDF) submittals are preferred. The applicant is requested to ensure that at least three letters of recommendation are submitted via the web link provided in the electronic application. Deadline for the application is December 1, 2014. Application materials may also be sent to EXPERIMENTAL PHYSICS AND EXPERIMENTAL ASTROPHYSICS FELLOWSHIPS, mail code 103-33, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA 91125 to arrive by December 1, 2014.
Fellowship candidates will automatically be considered for other available postdoctoral positions in their fields of interest. Email inquiries in regards to the application process may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Online applications open September 2, 2014.
