Congratuations to Prof. Clifford Johnson for being named a 2016 Simons Fellowship recipient in Theoretical Physics!
Prof. Johnson's project is titled "Implications of Extended Gravitational Thermodynamics".
The Fellows Programs provide grants to faculty who wish to pursue research while on leave from their teaching/administrative obligations. Doing so can promote creativity and intellectual stimulation, and the goal of the Simons Fellowship is to facilitate this type of growth.
To honor the 2016 Simons Fellowship recipients, the Simons Foundation has placed an advertisement in the "Science Times" section of the New York Times. It will appear in the March 22 edition.
Congratulations to Prof. Christoph Haselwandter on his NSF CAREER award.
CAREER: The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of the early career-development activities of those teacher-scholars who most effectively integrate research and education within the context of the mission of their organization. Such activities should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of integrated contributions to research and education.
