Our Mission

Careers for astronomers outside academia

Our mission is to provide information on non-academia career paths for astronomers and astrophysicists who might or might not have postdoc experience. As this website grows we will try to collect information from different sources (scientists, organizations, companies, astronomical communities, ...) in order to provide a more complete view of the employment opportunities either in government institutions or industry. We would appreciate your support in the form of information, your personal experience outside of academia, or a referral to someone you know who is willing to provide us with further information.

Please circulate our 5-point questionnaire to anyone you know who used to be an astronomer and now works at a non-academic job.

Please contact us if you would like to contribute to this initiative or sign up to receive updates. We will not give out your email address and will keep the emails to a minimum.
