Center for Interdisciplinary Exploration and Research in Astrophysics (CIERA)

CIERA's mission is to promote research and education through the support of postdoctoral fellows developing independent research programs, advanced graduate and undergraduate research, seminar series, a long-term visitors program, and to pursue new astrophysics research directions. Special emphasis is given to interdisciplinary connections with planetary science, computer science, applied math, chemistry, biology, electrical engineering, and materials science.
