The call for applications for the 2024 IPAC Visiting Graduate Student Fellowship (VGSF) is now open. Applications are due by 4 p.m. PDT Friday, August 18, 2023.
Established in 2013, the VGSF offers six-month positions to graduate students who want to conduct PhD-level astronomical research in close association with IPAC scientists. Students gain applicable research experience with leaders in the scientific areas of exoplanets, galactic and extra-galactic studies, stellar formation, cosmology, and more.
Visiting Graduate Fellows work at IPAC on the California Institute of Technology campus in Pasadena, California. The program duration is nominally February to August, with some flexibility on the start and end dates, during which a monthly stipend is provided. The exact number of fellowships awarded each year is decided based on available funding.
