Courteys of Greg Asner - Carnegie Airborne Observatory
 

The Carnegie Institution of Washington, also called the Carnegie Institution of Science, is headquartered in Washington, D.C. and was founded by Andrew Carnegie in 1902 as an organization for scientific discovery. Today, Carnegie scientists work in six departments on both the West and East Coasts.

Carnegie investigators—including students, post-doctoral fellows and visiting scholars—are leaders in the fields of plant biology, developmental biology, Earth and planetary sciences, astronomy and global ecology. They seek answers to questions about the structure of the universe, the formation of our solar system and other planetary systems, the behavior and transformation of matter, the function of genes, and the development of organisms. The organization also sponsors highly competitive postdoctoral fellowship programs, which operate at each of its campuses.
