The results of this year’s Sloan Research Fellowships competition have just been announced and we are delighted that two of our own faculty have been awarded this prestigious award once again this year.
From the Sloan website: The Sloan Research Fellowships seek to stimulate fundamental research by early-career scientists and scholars of outstanding promise. These two-year fellowships are awarded yearly to 118 researchers in recognition of distinguished performance and a unique potential to make substantial contributions to their field.
Of the 118 fellowships given out this year only 7 went to Canadian Universities with 3 of them to the University of Toronto and 2 of those to the Math Department. The other Canadian Universities honoured were the University of Victoria, Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia.
