We are the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, MD, operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy. We help humanity explore the universe with advanced space telescopes and ever-growing data archives. Founded in 1982, we have helped guide the most famous observatory in history, the Hubble Space Telescope.

Degree Level: Fellowships are available for highly qualified recent postdoctoral scientists to conduct independent research at United States Host Institutions chosen by each Fellow.

Available Subject: Fellowships are awarded to conduct independent research in any area of NASA Astrophysics using theory, observation, experimentation, or instrumental development.

Scholarship Benefits: The initial annual stipend for an 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. No additional stipend, salary, or other remuneration may be accepted from any other appointment (such as teaching), fellowship, or similar grant during the period of the fellowship. Additional honorary named appointments intended to be linked with the title of “Hubble Fellow,” “Sagan Fellow,” or “Einstein Fellow” are similarly not allowed.

While the salary of the fellows is determined by the NHFP, benefits such as retirement, family leave, etc., depending on the rules of the host institution and whether the fellow is considered an employee or independent (stipendiary) fellow by the host institution. Prospective fellows are strongly encouraged to investigate the policies at potential host institutions before listing them on their application, as changes after acceptance can be difficult, and even impossible as host institutions reach their quota of fellows.
