2009 Sagan Postdoctoral Fellowship Program – Deadline November 6, 2008

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.

2009 Einstein Postdoctoral Fellowship Program – Deadline November 7, 2008

The Einstein Postdoctoral Fellowship Program provides an opportunity for highly qualified, recent postdoctoral scientists to conduct independent research that is broadly related to the scientific mission of the NASA Physics of the Cosmos program as addressed by any of the missions of this program. These include high-energy astrophysics relevant to the Chandra, Fermi (formerly GLAST), XMM-Newton, INTEGRAL, and IXO (formerly Constellation-X) missions; cosmological investigations relevant to the Planck and JDEM missions; and gravitational astrophysics relevant to the LISA mission.

This research can include new observations or archival studies with these missions as well as related theoretical studies and studies of sources from these missions at other wavelengths. The main criterion for proposal selection is the contribution of the proposed research program to the scientific return of the Physics of the Cosmos missions.

The deadline for applications and letters of reference is Nov. 7, 2008, at 5 p.m. EST. Offers will be made before Feb.1, 2009, and new appointments are expected to begin in September 2009.

2009 Hubble Postdoctoral Fellowship Program – Deadline November 6, 2008

The Hubble Fellowship Program provides an opportunity for highly qualified, recent postdoctoral scientists to conduct independent research that is broadly related to the NASA Cosmic Origins scientific goals as addressed by any of the missions in this program: the Hubble Space Telescope: Spitzer Space Telescope: Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, or SOFIA; the Herschel Space Observatory; and the James Webb Space Telescope.

An application for the fellowship consists of a research proposal and supporting documentation. The deadline for applications is Nov. 6, 2008. Offers will be made before Feb.1, 2009, and new appointments are expected to begin in September 2009.
