James Webb Space Telescope Postdoctoral Fellowships At NASA’S Goddard Space Flight Center

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) Project at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) invites applications through the NASA Postdoctoral Program (NPP) to carry out postdoctoral research in astrophysics, astronomical instrumentation or planetary science. The applicant will work directly with one of the JWST Project Scientists and will be resident at GSFC. The science objectives of JWST include the initial formation of galaxies in the early Universe, galaxy evolution including active galactic nuclei (AGN), star and planetary system formation, exoplanets and Solar System objects. Research relevant to JWST’s science goals could include theoretical studies or be based on observations taken with current space-based or ground-based facilities. See the AAS job register for details.
