CEGA affiliate Benjamin Faber has been named a 2020 Sloan Research Fellow along with eight other UC Berkeley faculty members.

“Nine young faculty members at UC Berkeley have been awarded a Sloan Research Fellowship, an honor given yearly to the brightest up-and-coming scientists in the United States and Canada.

The nine are among 126 fellowships across North America announced today (Wednesday, Feb. 12) by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Winners receive a two-year, $75,000 fellowship, which can be spent to advance their research.

Since the first Sloan Research Fellowships were awarded in 1955, 282 UC Berkeley faculty members have received the honor.

‘To receive a Sloan Research Fellowship is to be told by your fellow scientists that you stand out among your peers,’ said foundation president Adam F. Falk in an announcement. ‘A Sloan Research Fellow is someone whose drive, creativity and insight makes them a researcher to watch.'”
