NEW YORK – September 21, 2022 – The Blavatnik Family Foundation and the New York Academy of Sciences today announced the three Winners and six Finalists of the 2022 Blavatnik Regional Awards for Young Scientists. The Awards honor outstanding postdoctoral scientists from academic research institutions across New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. The announcement comes during the National Postdoctoral Association’s 13th annual celebration of 2022 National Postdoc Appreciation Week, which recognizes the significant contributions that postdoctoral scholars make to U.S. research and discovery.
A collaborative team (including Itai Cohen, Paul McEuen, and postdocs Michael Reynolds and Alejandro Cortese) has installed electronic “brains” on solar-powered robots that are 100 to 250 micrometers in size – smaller than an ant’s head – so that they can walk autonomously without being externally controlled.
The Laboratory of Atomic and Solid State Physics (LASSP) at Cornell University invites applications for a tenure-track appointment at the assistant professor level, to begin July 1, 2023. We encourage applications in any and all areas of experimental condensed matter physics or physics education research, including (but not limited to): biophysics, cold atoms and molecules, hard and soft condensed matter physics, materials, optics, quantum information and devices, statistical mechanics, x-ray physics, and physics education research.
