A number of Prize Fellowships at the Postdoctoral Scholar level in Theoretical Physics or Astrophysics will be awarded on the basis of an international competition. They are to begin in Fall 2014. The Postdoctoral Scholar appointments are for a three-year duration, carry a competitive annual stipend and/or salary combination and offer an annual research expense fund.
This Fellowship program has been established to offer scientists, typically within a few years of receipt of the Ph.D., the best possible opportunity to develop their talents. Research will be encouraged in areas in which Caltech's faculty is currently active: (Astrophysics, Astrophysical Cosmology, Condensed Matter Physics, Elementary Particle Physics, Gravitational Physics, Mathematical Physics, String Theory, Quantum Information, Particle Cosmology).
Electronic copies of the curriculum vitae with email address and with citizenship indicated, publications list (indicate articles which appeared in refereed journals), and statement of research interest are required. Electronic Portable Document Format (PDF) submittals are preferred. The applicant is requested to ensure that at least three letters of recommendation are submitted via the web link provided in the electronic application. Deadline for the application is December 1, 2013. Application materials may also be sent to THEORETICAL PHYSICS AND THEORETICAL ASTROPHYSICS FELLOWSHIPS, mail code 103-33, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA 91125, to arrive by December 1, 2013.
Fellowship candidates will automatically be considered for other available postdoctoral positions in their fields of interest. Email inquiries in regards to the application process may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
