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 are to begin in Fall 2013 and are for a three-year duration. They 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 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 & Sub-millimeter Astronomy Low Energy Particle Physics
Microwave Background Observations Neurobiology
Nuclear Physics Quantum Optics
Radio Astronomy Solar Physics
Surface Physics Ultraviolet Astrophysics
