The successful candidate will undertake a program of independent research and participate in the academic and scientific life of the IfA through an active collaboration with a research group at the Institute. The Fellow can apply as PI for telescope time to the entire suite of observational facilities on the summits of Maunakea and Haleakala through the IfA’s guaranteed access. The Fellow will also have access to the surveys carried out by the IfA-operated Pan-STARRS wide-field optical telescopes. Though not required, the Fellow may also mentor students at the undergraduate or graduate level. More information about the Institute and its facilities are available at http://www.ifa.hawaii.edu.
Applicants should obtain a letter of sponsorship from an IfA faculty member describing their collaborative interests (see http://www.ifa.hawaii.edu/parrent2017.shtml for further details). Applicants should demonstrate outstanding promise as a researcher through publications and their letters of recommendation. They should have completed a Ph.D. in astronomy, physics, or equivalent areas by the start date of employment. The Fellow will be provided an annual salary of approximately $68,000, a research budget of $12,000/year, and assistance with relocation expenses to Hawai‘i.
