Scholars of Outstanding Promise

Three junior faculty members are selected for fellowships from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation

Every so often the work of an early career researcher becomes so important, it captures the attention of their professional peers. Recognizing these young “scholars of outstanding promise,” the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation(link is external) awards Sloan Research Fellowships to support their future breakthroughs and careers as leaders in their fields.

This year, three of those 128 early-career innovators come from UC Santa Barbara.

“I congratulate Sung Soo Kim(link is external)Fedor Manin(link is external) and Timothy Brandt(link is external) on this exceptional honor,” said Pierre Wiltzius, dean of mathematical, physical and life sciences. “With these fellowships, they join a rarefied group of 125 other extraordinarily talented young scholars whose research shows great promise. I look forward to learning about the valuable discoveries these awards will support.”

“A Sloan Research Fellow is a rising star, plain and simple,” said Adam F. Falk, president of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. “To receive a fellowship is to be told by the scientific community that your achievements as a young scholar are already driving the research frontier.”
