Fellows have access to all Observatory resources, including the 4.3-m Lowell Discovery Telescope (LDT), the Naval Precision Optical Interferometer (NPOI), several 1-m class telescopes, the Astrophysical Materials Lab at Northern Arizona University, and our instrumentation and engineering facilities. There are also opportunities for fellows to develop their science communication skills as part of the observatory’s education and public outreach mission.

The Lowell Observatory Prize Postdoctoral Fellow receives an annual salary of $75,000, relocation reimbursement up to $5,000, and research funds of $20,000 annually to support their scientific program. Lowell Observatory is committed to diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
