Space Telescope Science Institute Announces the 2011 Hubble Fellows

BALTIMORE — A panel of experts from the astronomy and astrophysics research community was recently convened at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore to advise STScI Director Matt Mountain on the selection of 17 new candidates for the Hubble Fellowship Program. This is one of three prestigious postdoctoral fellowship programs funded by NASA; the others are the Sagan and the Einstein Fellowships. STScI administers the Hubble Fellowship Program for NASA.

“I am always astonished by the caliber of knowledge represented by the Hubble Fellows. This year is no different. The newly appointed Hubble Fellows represent the highest quality of new professionals in the astronomical community who will become the future leaders of our field,” said Mountain.

“The Hubble Fellowship Program supports some of the most prominent and active young research scientists at a crucial point in their careers. Hubble Fellows are strongly represented among the leading scientists and educators of the coming generation, and the impact of this program on astronomy and astrophysics is impressive,” added Ronald Allen, Head of the Hubble Fellowship Program at STScI.
