The NASA Astrobiology Institute at the University of Hawaii invites applications for its international visitorsí program. The UH NAI team seeks visiting researchers who will establish collaborations and work with Co-Investigators and post-doctoral students on projects related to its theme: The origin and distribution of water and its connection to life in the universe.
Visitors will be provided with apartment housing near campus, office space and access to a computer/internet. Housing is at the Astro Hale apartment, located across the street from a shopping center, about 1 block from the Institute for Astronomy and about a 15 minute walk from the main campus (where the majority of post-docs and Co-Investigators are located). The apartment is fully furnished with a kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. It is possible to share hosting between UH NAI and one of our team-memberís departments, which (in exchange for another talk) can provide air-fare.
Applicants should directly contact appropriate members of the UHNAI team in order to discuss potential collaborations. When ready to submit to a formal application, applicants are asked to prepare a packet that comprises: (1) a current C.V.; (2) a brief summary of current research; (3) a short description of overlap with one or more team members; and (4) a proposed activity plan for the visit, including at least one presentation/seminar to the UH NAI team. Applications to work with more than one team member are especially encouraged. This packet should be submitted via email to the project manager for distribution to the team.
