The Exoplanet Science Fellowship provides up to three years of support at STScI for outstanding postdoctoral researchers working on innovative scientific studies in any area of exoplanet research. The research may be theoretical, observational, or instrumental.

The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) serves as the science operations center for the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), and supports the archives for NASA’s Kepler/K2 and Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) in the Barbara A. Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes (MAST). Preference will be given to applicants who take advantage of the opportunities afforded by data from these missions.

The fellowship includes a competitive salary, generous benefits, and a budget to cover research expenses. Fellows are selected based on applicants’ accomplishments and proposed research. You must have received (or expect to receive) your PhD before the commencement of the fellowship.
