International Postdoctoral Scientists to conduct research on an independent level in different areas of NASA Astrophysics at US Institutions

Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in collaboration with the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute (NExScI)  provides NASA Hubble Fellowship Program for highly qualified International Postdoctoral Scientists to conduct research on an independent level in different areas of NASA Astrophysics at the California Institute of Technology and the Chandra X-ray Center at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory.

The research will be carried out at United States host institutions chosen by each fellow, subject to a limitation on the numbers of fellows that can be hosted by any one institution at any given time.

Scholarship Award

NHFP Fellow will receive support for health insurance, relocation costs, travel, computing services, publications, and other direct research costs. No additional stipend, salary, or other remuneration may be accepted from any other appointment (such as teaching), fellowship, or similar grant during the period of the fellowship.

The NHFP provides salary support for up to three years plus benefits, and an additional allowance for travel and other research costs. Contingent upon NASA funding, 24 new fellowships will be awarded.

NHFP Fellowships are awarded through grants to host institutions for up to a three-year period. Funding will be provided initially for the first year of the fellowship; renewals for the second and third years will depend on satisfactory annual performance reviews, and the availability of NASA funds.


Applicants must have received a PhD. or equivalent doctoral-level research degree in astronomy, physics, or a related discipline. The date of the Ph.D. award should be on or after January 1, 2016. Applicants with earlier Ph.D. award dates may be eligible in exceptional cases (see below). Graduate-student awardees who have not yet received their doctoral degree at the time of application must present evidence of having completed all requirements for the degree before commencing their fellowships.

Eligibility may extend to those who received their Ph.D. as early as January 1, 2015, if professional work was necessarily delayed by personal or family considerations. Such extended eligibility must be justified by emailing, at least 2 weeks in advance of the application deadline.

NHFP Fellowships are open to English-speaking citizens of all nations. Qualified applicants will receive consideration without regard to race, creed, color, age, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, veteran status, disability, or national origin. Women and members of minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
