Applications for Hubble Fellowship are now invited. Both the U.S and international scholars are invited to apply. Fellows are expected to do independent research at United States Host Institutions chosen by each Fellow. This year, the Hubble Fellowship provides 24 fellowships for up to three years.
The Hubble Fellowships for Postdoctoral Scientists provides an opportunity for highly qualified recent postdoctoral scientists to conduct independent research that is broadly related to the NASA Cosmic Origins scientific goals as addressed by any of the missions in that program: the Hubble Space Telescope, Spitzer Space Telescope, Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA), the Herschel Space Observatory, and the James Webb Space Telescope.
The initial annual stipend for a NHFP Fellow is comparable to that of other prize fellowships and is subject to annual review and adjustment. In addition, the NHFP Fellow will receive support for health insurance, relocation costs, travel, computing services, publications, and other direct research costs.
