DAWN Post-doctoral Fellowships


The Cosmic Dawn Center (DAWN) invites applications for the DAWN Post-doctoral Fellowships. The fellowships are intended for outstanding early career scientists whose research falls within DAWN’s research themes: high-redshift galaxy evolution, epoch of re-ionization, first stars and galaxies, dust and ISM in the early universe and dark matter. DAWN Fellows are expected to pursue their own independent, cutting edge research programs, either in theory or observations.
