|2010 alumnus wins National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship|
|Wednesday, May 29, 2019|
Brian Clark, Class of 2010 - Clark was selected to receive a three-year National Science Foundation (NSF) Astronomy and Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellowship that will fund research and outreach in astrophysics.
Clark's latest fellowship award follows a 2016 NSF three-year graduate research fellowship award, which Clark used to fund research in astrophysics while a graduate student in the physics department at The Ohio State University (OSU). He used some of the grant funding in February 2018 for a month-long stint in the South Pole conducting experiments measuring neutrinos.
Clark will use his postdoctoral fellowship grant at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan this fall after graduating in August from OSU with his doctorate degree. The NSF awards less than 10 postdoctoral fellowships each year through a highly competitive process. Clark will receive $100,000 per year for three years for salary and expenses to continue research on neutrinos and engage in educational outreach.
