Steward Observatory Prize Postdoctoral Fellowship Positions Available

The University of Arizona Department of Astronomy and Steward Observatory is advertising for three prize postdoctoral positions.

The Bart J. Bok Fellowship is open to scholars in any area of theoretical, experimental, or observational astrophysics who would undertake ambitious, independent research in our department. 

The Steward Observatory Prize Fellowship for the Development of Astronomical Instrumentation and Technology seeks young researchers interested in developing advanced instrumentation and/or astronomical technologies independently or in collaboration with members of Steward Observatory. This is the first year of this prize fellowship, which will recur alongside our other fellowship positions: the Bok, Strittmatter, and Theory/Computation fellowships. 

The KASI-Arizona Joint Postdoctoral Fellowship offers a 4-year fellowship position that includes two years in residence at Steward Observatory followed by two years at the Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute in Daejeon, Korea. The recipient may pursue research in any area of observational or theoretical research.
