Steward Observatory Prize Fellowship in Theoretical and Computational Astrophysics Steward Observatory/University of Arizona


The Steward Prize Fellowship in Theoretical and Computational Astrophysics is a relatively new postdoctoral fellowship at the Department of Astronomy and Steward Observatory. The new fellowship offers the same independence, funding level, and duration as the Bok Postdoctoral Fellowship. The full facilities of Steward Observatory are also available to the Fellow.

At this time (late 2017), the Steward Observatory at the University of Arizona invites applications for the Steward Observatory Prize Postdoctoral Fellowship in Theoretical and Computational Astrophysics. The successful candidate will have the freedom to pursue independent research as well as the opportunity to collaborate with numerous faculty members carrying out theoretical and observational research. Steward Observatory has a stimulating research environment and an active program of seminars, meetings, and visitors. We have 29 postdoctoral fellows, and a total of 73 Tenure-line and Research faculty. We also have computing facilities such as the El Gato ( super computer on campus.
