Details

Funded NRAO Fellowship Program is available for application.

The Jansky Fellowship Program supports outstanding postdoctoral scientists whose research is broadly related to the mission and scientific goals of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO). NRAO operates two world-class research facilities: the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array and the Very Large Array.

As a Jansky Fellow, you will have a unique opportunity to contribute to and learn from the development and delivery of the largest and most capable radio telescopes in the world. Research that employs NRAO telescopes in multi-wavelength collaborations is encouraged. Candidates with interests in radio astronomy techniques, instrumentation, computation, and theory are encouraged to apply. Applicants should describe how their research or technical interests couple with NRAO telescopes or science.

All Jansky Fellows are expected to spend at least 75% of their time on self-directed research.  Also, they should spend 10-25% of their Fellowship on activities related to the development and delivery of radio astronomy. Moreover, they should utilize the opportunity to develop their own broad skill set.

Fellowships normally begin in September 2019.

Benefits

The starting salary for the 2019 Jansky Fellowship program will be $67,500 per year for an initial two-year appointment with possible renewal for a third year. Also, a research budget of up to $17,000 per year is provided for travel and computing support. Fellows are also eligible for page charge support, vacation accrual, health insurance, and a relocation allowance. Furthermore, up to $3,000 per year is provided to non-NRAO institutions hosting a Jansky Fellow to defray local institutional expenses.

NRAO benefit plans include core programs such as high deductible health plan with health savings account, dental and vision insurance, life insurance, long-term disability and employer retirement contributions.  Also, employees may also elect to enroll in supplemental life, accident, critical illness insurance and additional self-funded retirement accounts.  Furthermore, our leave program includes generous vacation, sick, family sick, (paid) parental, and doctor/dentist leave.  Moreover, NRAO is committed to professional development and offers tuition reimbursement pool for non-degree related classes, seminars, and conferences.
