The NASA Exoplanet Science Institute announces the introduction of the Sagan Postdoctoral Fellowship Program and solicits applications for fellowships to begin in the fall of 2009.
The Sagan Fellowships will support outstanding recent postdoctoral scientists to conduct independent research that is broadly related to the science goals of the NASA Exoplanet Exploration program. The primary goal of missions within this program is to discover and characterize planetary systems and Earth-like planets around nearby stars.
The deadline for applications and letters of reference is Nov. 6, 2008, at 4 p.m. PST. Offers will be made before Feb.1, 2009, and new appointments are expected to begin on or about Sept.1, 2009.
