Job Announcement Text: 

The Yale Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics invites applications for the YCAA Postdoctoral Prize Fellowship. Applicants must have received their Ph.D. by June 2020 in astronomy or astrophysics/cosmology. YCAA is part of the vibrant research community in the Astronomy and Physics departments at Yale. The Fellowship is for three years (renewed annually subject to performance) and offers competitive salary, benefits and research funds.

Yale offers a lively intellectual environment and access to world-class astronomical facilities, including the Keck and Palomar telescopes, and to Chilean telescopes through an ongoing Chilean collaboration. Yale is an institutional member of the SDSS-IV and SDSS-V collaborations and the Fellow will have access to High-Performance Computing facilities at Yale.

Fellows are free to carry out their own research program, although research interests that intersect with those of the Yale astrophysics faculty (see https://ycaa.yale.edu/people/faculty) are preferred. Active research at Yale spans most areas in astrophysics and includes theoretical, observational and instrumentation efforts.

Applicants must have received their Ph.D. by June 2020 in astronomy or astrophysics/cosmology.

Applicants should apply online at http://apply.interfolio.com/69107 and must submit their curriculum vitae, bibliography, and a brief (max 3 pages) description of their anticipated research program by November 1, 2019. Candidates should also arrange for at least 3 letters of recommendation to be submitted to the above URL by November 1. Fellowship candidates will also be considered for any other open postdoctoral positions in astrophysics at Yale in their fields of interest, unless they ask to be considered only for the YCAA Fellowship.

Applications that are complete by November 1, 2019 will be assured of full consideration.

Yale is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Yale values diversity among its students, staff, and faculty and strongly welcomes applications from women, persons with disabilities, protected veterans, and underrepresented minorities.
