Description
The 51 Pegasi b Fellowship Program sponsored by the Heising-Simons Foundation provides an opportunity for promising recent doctoral scientists to conduct novel theoretical, experimental, or observational research in planetary astronomy. The fellowship program supports postdoctoral fellows to advance our fundamental understanding of planet formation and evolution, solar system science, planetary atmospheres, protoplanetary disks, exoplanet science, or other closely related topics. The fellowship program recognizes early-career investigators of significant potential and provides them with the opportunity to conduct independent research at a selected host institution.
