Carnegie Theoretical Astrophysics Center Fellowship

The CTAC Fellowship is intended to encourage long-term research in theoretical astrophysics, particularly in areas related to the ongoing efforts at the Observatories in planet formation, galaxy evolution, dark matter studies, high energy astrophysics, and cosmology. Fellows are expected to carry out an independent program of research that complements and enhances both the theoretical and observational activities of the observatory.

CTAC Fellows have full access to Carnegie's computational resources; previous fellows have utilized 1-2 million CPU hours per year. The fellowship is awarded for one year and may be renewed for up to two additional years. The successful applicant must have completed the Ph.D. requirements before assuming the fellowship.
