What a great Valentine's Day gift for partners in life and science, John Davis (physics) and Juli Gibbs-Davis (chemistry): the Sloan Foundation announced today that each had been awarded a prestigious Sloan Research Fellowship.
Nominated by their peers and chosen by a distinguished panel of senior scholars, the Sloan Research Fellows represent the next generation of leaders in the natural sciences, economics and mathematics. The two-year, $50,000 fellowships are awarded yearly to 126 researchers throughout North America in recognition of their distinguished performance and potential to make substantial contributions to their field. Sloan Research Fellows have gone on to win 38 Nobel prizes, 14 Fields Medals in mathematics, and eight John Bates Clark awards in economics. The U of A's last recipient was William Ayer in 1965. (Jillian Buriak was a Sloan Fellow, but prior to her arrival at U of A.)

Warmest congratulations, Juli and John!
