Sabbatical Visiting Researcher Program 2022-2023 – Center for Computational Astrophysics

The Center for Computational Astrophysics (CCA) at the Simons Foundation’s Flatiron Institute is accepting requests from faculty members on sabbatical who are interested in visiting the CCA during the academic year 2022-2023. Located in New York City, the CCA’s mission is to analyze big astronomical datasets and to understand complex, multi-scale physics in an astrophysical and cosmological context.

During their visit, generally as consultants/independent contractors, sabbatical visiting researchers will engage in projects independently and in collaboration with members of the CCA. Sabbatical visiting researchers may join the CCA in this capacity for up to one academic year.

If interested, please submit your research plan for during your visit to the CCA, not exceeding two pages in length, and a CV to visitingscholar@simonsfoundation.org. Please let us know if there are particular CCA researchers you are interested in collaborating with, and if there are constraints you may have about the timing and duration of your visit.

Please note that during your visit, adherence to our institutional code of conduct is expected, as it is for all staff, visitors, and conference participants. This code applies both to in-person behaviors and when using any communication channels, including social media. In addition, the code requires all staff, visitors, and participants to respect requests for confidentiality during scientific talks. We believe our code of conduct is essential to the success of our mission. Mutual respect for one another will truly stimulate our best performance.

Full consideration will be given to applications submitted before January 3, 2022. We expect to communicate decisions in early February 2022.
