“This program seeks out young scientists that can introduce new methods, processes and instrumentation to the scientific community. Congratulations to the 2022 class of Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellows – individuals who are meeting the program’s aims by doing research that is both important and innovative. We look forward to providing them with support as they transition to independent research careers.”
The Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellowship provides salary and research support to postdoctoral scholars with the highest potential for success in an independent academic career in the chemical sciences, and to assist in their moves from mentored yet independent researchers to tenure-track positions. Funds for 2022 awardees will be issued this summer and extend over a period of up to three years.
