Job Opportunities at the HEASARC and GSFC

NASA Postdoctoral Program

The NASA Postdoctoral Program (NPP) offers unique research opportunities to highly talented national and international individuals to engage in ongoing NASA research programs at a NASA Center, NASA Headquarters, or at a NASA-affiliated research institution. These one- to three-year Fellowship appointments are competitive and are designed to advance NASA's missions in space science, earth science, aeronautics, space operations, exploration systems, and astrobiology..

The Einstein Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

The Einstein Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is now accepting on-line applications. Full details of the program and instructions for applicants can be found at:

The application deadline is Thursday, Nov 5 2015 (5:00 pm EST), for new Einstein Fellowship appointments expected to begin on or about Sep 1, 2016.

The Einstein Postdoctoral Fellowship program, sponsored by NASA, awards Fellowships to recent Ph.D.s in astronomy, physics, and related disciplines. Einstein Fellows hold their appointments at a Host Institution in the U.S. for research that is broadly related to the science goals of the NASA Physics of the Cosmos program. This includes high energy astrophysics relevant to Chandra, Fermi, XMM-Newton, and future NASA X-ray missions, cosmological investigations relevant to Planck, WFIRST, or new dark energy missions, and gravitational astrophysics relevant to LISA, Pathfinder and subsequent related missions. The proposed research may be observational, instrumental, theoretical, archival or study sources from these missions at other wavelengths.

The main criterion for proposal selection is the contribution of the proposed program of research to the scientific return of the Physics of the Cosmos missions. The Fellowship duration is three years (subject to review after the second year and to availability of funds from NASA).

Scientific Positions in the Mission Guest Observer Facilities and Science Support Centers

From time to time scientists are recruited for support positions in the mission GOFs and SSCs colocated with the HEASARC at GSFC. These positions are in general advertised in the AAS Job Register (q.v.).
