The JSI Prize Postdoctoral Fellowship is an internationally advertised position to support an early career scientist to work on scientific topics that are the focus of the Joint Space Science Institute. Current areas of interest to JSI include strong gravity, gravitational waves, black holes, high-energy and plasma astrophysics, particle astrophysics, and cosmology.
Beginning with the 2018-19 academic year, the fellowship has been renamed the Neil Gehrels Prize Postdoctoral Fellowship in honor of Neil Gehrels, who was key figure in the establishment of the JSI and was active in working with students and early career scientists to further their aspirations.
