Four Early-Career Scholars Named Sloan Research Fellows

February 18, 2022

Four UC Berkeley assistant professors have been awarded a Sloan Research Fellowship, one of the most prestigious honors given to early-career scientific researchers. 

The four are among 118 new 2022 fellows announced this week by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The fellowships recognize young scholars whose “achievements and potential place them among the next generation of scientific leaders in the U.S. and Canada,” the foundation said in an announcement.

Berkeley’s new fellows are Yvette Fisher of neurobiology and molecular and cell biology, Grace Gu of mechanical engineering, Avishay Tal of electrical engineering and computer sciences and Ruixiang Zhang of mathematics. Each will receive a two-year, $75,000 fellowship; the fellows can use this funding to support their research.
