Astronomy Mentorship Program for Upcoming Postdocs (AMP-UP)
Important Dates for 2023
AMP-UP Hybrid Meeting
We will be having a hybrid (in-person and virtual) meeting between mentees and mentors in September. We encourage everyone to attend in-person if possible. All travel expenses will be covered to help the mentees attend the meeting.
Dates: September 8 - 9, 2023
Location: Carnegie Observatories, Pasadena, Los Angeles, CA, USA
Statement of Purpose
Mentors are recruited from current and former participants of various prize fellowships in astronomy, including the NASA Hubble Fellowship Program and its predecessor programs (Hubble, Einstein, Sagan, Chandra, Fermi, Michelson, Spitzer), NSF Fellowship Programs (e.g. AAPF), and the Heising-Simons 51 Pegasi b Fellowship. Mentor bios for 2023-2024 are available here.
Student application and selection process for 2023-2024
We will match mentors and mentees based on their stated experiences, goals, and interests, as well as time-zone compatibility. We will separately contact mentors and mentees to confirm the matches.
