A number of Prize Fellowships at the Postdoctoral Scholar level in Theoretical Physics or Astrophysics will be awarded on the basis of an international competition. They are to begin in Fall 2013. The Postdoctoral Scholar appointments are for a three-year duration, carry a competitive annual stipend and/or salary combination and offer an annual research expense fund.
This Fellowship program has been established to offer scientists, typically within a few years of receipt of the Ph.D., the best possible opportunity to develop their talents. Research will be encouraged in areas in which Caltech's faculty is currently active:
Astrophysics Astrophysical Cosmology
Condensed Matter Physics Elementary Particle Physics
Gravitational Physics Mathematical Physics
String Theory Quantum Information
