We invite applications for the Harvard Postdoctoral Fellowship for Future Faculty Leaders (FFL) at the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian (CfA).

Focuses include forming a vision of broad impact and preparing for success in the next levels of academic research. Fellows will also benefit from access to our observational and computing facilities, mentoring in research and professional development from primary faculty sponsors, collaborations within the large community of CfA scientists, and opportunities for teaching and public outreach. The fellowship is a three-year term, renewed yearly and contingent on satisfactory performance.

The Fellowship for Future Faculty Leaders (FFL) is part of an initiative to increase equity, diversity, and inclusion in research, teaching, and leadership in astronomy.
