Congratulations go to SoM Professors Michael Lacey and Mohammad Ghomi for their recent award of the prestigious Simons Fellowship for 2020. This fellowship aims to make sabbatical research leaves more productive by extending them from a single term to a full academic year.
Awards are be based on the applicant’s scientific accomplishments in the five-year period preceding the application and on the potential scientific impact of the work to be done during the leave period.
A Simons Fellowship in Mathematics provides salary replacement for up to half of the Fellow’s current academic-year salary, and up to $10,000 for expenses related to the leave. The Fellow’s home institution will receive an additional 20 percent overhead on allowable expenses.
