Prize Doctoral Fellowships

The Yale Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics invites applications for the YCAA Postdoctoral Prize Fellowship. Applicants must have received their Ph.D. in astronomy or astrophysics/cosmology. The Fellowship is for three years (renewed annually subject to performance) and offers competitive salary, benefits and research funds.

Yale offers a lively intellectual environment and access to world-class astronomical facilities, including the Keck, Palomar and SMARTS telescopes, and to Chilean telescopes through an ongoing Chilean collaboration. Yale is an institutional member of the SDSS-IV collaboration and the Fellow will have access to High-Performance Computing facilities at Yale.

Fellows are free to carry out their own research program, although research interests that intersect with those of the Yale astrophysics faculty (see ycaa.yale.edu/people/faculty) are preferred. Active research at Yale spans most areas in astrophysics and includes theoretical, observational and instrumentation efforts.

The Fellowship is intended to support promising physicists in the early stages of their careers. This year’s Yale Mossman Fellowship will be in elementary particle theory, broadly defined. The fellowship provides a three-year appointment with a competitive stipend, a discretionary annual research fund, and comprehensive health insurance.

The Condensed Matter Theory group at Yale University seeks outstanding applicants for a Yale Physics Prize Postdoctoral Fellowship endowed by Yale University. Preference will be given to applicants with expertise in quantum aspects of condensed matter theory and research interests in the general areas of electron correlations, low-dimensional systems, topological phases of matter, disorder, cold atomic gases, and physics of quantum computation and quantum information.

The Yale Quantum Institute (YQI), founded in 2014, serves as a forum to bring together experimental and theoretical researchers at Yale in the field of quantum information physics, quantum optics and nanophotonics, optomechanics, mesoscopic physics, quantum control, quantum measurement, and quantum many-body physics. It provides a synergistic and collaborative setting for Yale’s cutting edge research in these fields. A recent report from University Science Strategy Committee identified quantum science as one of Yale’s top priorities and recommends the expansion of existing Yale quantum efforts at a scale that will attract international attention and place Yale in a position of broad intellectual leadership.
