Divisional announcements and opportunities

Funded through an annual gift of up to $75,000 from the Errett Fisher Foundation, the Daryl and Marguerite Errett Discovery Award in Biomedical Research is intended to honor the lives of Daryl and Marguerite Errett, while providing seed funding to the most exceptional young postdocs or research professionals (non-tenured faculty) at UC Santa Barbara early in their careers to support their innovative research in the field of biomedicine.

All faculty members in the Division of Mathematical, Life, and Physical Sciences (MLPS) and the College of Engineering are invited to nominate a postdoctoral fellow for this prestigious award that provides seed funding to support his/her innovative, cutting-edge research, that might be considered too risky by agencies such as NIH.

The Otis Williams Fund at the Santa Barbara Foundation will provide two years of support for post-doctoral research training at the interface of biology and engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara. This fellowship is intended to support traditional biomedical fields such as biochemistry, molecular biology, and cell biology coupled with UCSB's unique strengths in materials, computing, and mechanical, chemical, and electrical engineering.

Two UC Santa Barbara faculty members — cryptographer Stefano Tessaro and condensed matter physicist Andrea Young — have been selected to receive research fellowships from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation for 2017.
