Shane has been awarded an Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellowship.
Quote from the Beckman website: “The Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellows Award program is an open program for research institutions across the United States to support postdoctoral scholars who are judged to have the highest potential for success in an independent academic career in chemistry and the life sciences, and who will become the next generation of leaders and innovators in science, engineering, and technology.”
Approximately 20 people were awarded this fellowship nationwide. This fellowship is intended to support Shane’s transition to an independent career in research and comes with a two-years fellowship and additional funds for research expenditures.
