Dicke Fellows

The Princeton University Physics Department has established a postdoctoral program for exceptional recent Ph.D. recipients in experimental physics. Each year, up to two scholars are selected through an annual competition for appointments of a three-year duration. In addition to salary and benefits, the program provides a discretionary fund. In recognition of Princeton physicist Robert Dicke, whose generosity enabled this program, the scholars are called "Dicke Fellows."

All Dicke fellows are provided with competitive salary and benefits. In addition, the program will provide a discretionary fund of $9,000 per year for each scholar

Princeton has experimental research programs in Atomic Physics, Biophysics, Condensed Matter Physics, Cosmology & Gravitation, High Energy Physics, and Particle Astrophysics.

For consideration, please visit the current competition.  The deadline for application is October 22, 2021.  To submit your application, please visit the Physics Job Application Site.
