EINSTEIN FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
On behalf of the NASA Astrophysics Division, the Chandra X-Ray Center (CXC) is pleased to announce the annual competition for the Einstein Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. Einstein Fellows hold their appointments at a Host Institution in the US, for research that is
broadly related to the science goals of the NASA Physics of the Cosmos program.
This includes high energy astrophysics relevant to Chandra, Fermi, XMM-Newton and future NASA X-ray missions, cosmological investigations relevant to Planck, WFIRST or new Dark Energy missions, and gravitational astrophysics relevant to LISA Pathfinder and subsequent related missions.
The Fellowships are tenable at any US institution where Physics of the Cosmos related research can be carried out. The Fellowship is initially for two years, with the expectation of a third year, contingent upon performance and available funding. Subject to the availability of NASA funding, up to 10 Einstein Fellows will be appointed this year, through grants to United States institutions.
The Call for Proposals, which includes detailed Program policies and application instructions, is available on the World Wide Web at http://cxc.harvard.edu/fellows/. An application includes a cover form, a research proposal, letters of reference, a curriculum vitae, and other relevant materials as detailed in the instructions. Full instructions for submitting applications through the web are contained in the Call for Proposals. The application deadline is November 1, 2012 (5:00 pm EST).
Einstein Fellowship appointments are expected to begin on or about September 1, 2013. Women and members of minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
