Supplemental 7-m Array Call for Proposals in Cycle 4

The ALMA Director announces that the JAO will accept observing proposals that request the 7-m Array in the remainder of Cycle 4, which ends on 30 September 2017. This proposal call enables the community to propose projects for undersubscribed regions of the observing queue for the 7-m Array. Up to 800 hours on the 7-m Array will be allocated through this opportunity.

Proposals can be submitted starting 21 April and will be reviewed as they are received. Instructions on how to submit a proposal through the ALMA Observing Tool will be available on the ALMA Science Portal on 21 April. Proposals can be submitted at any time up through the end of Cycle 4 or until the available time has been fully allocated. An announcement will be posted on the ALMA Science Portal when this opportunity closes.

2017 Jansky Fellows

The NRAO Jansky Fellowship program provides outstanding opportunities for research in astronomy. Jansky Fellows formulate and carry out investigations either independently or in collaboration with others within the wide framework of interests of the Observatory.  The program is open each fall to candidates with interest in radio astronomy instrumentation, computation, and theory, and prior radio experience is not required. Multi-wavelength projects leading to a synergy with NRAO instruments are encouraged. We are pleased to announce that three new Jansky Fellows will be joining NRAO in fall 2017. Read more…

2017 Jansky Lectureship - Call for Nominations
