Smalley InstituteSmalley Institute

With the addition of the Carl and Lillian Illig Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Nanotechnology, which will fund its first award in Spring 2014, the Smalley Institute has three separate fellowships for supporting and promoting research leaders in nanoscale science and technology.

The actual timing of awards is subject primarily to variations in the return on investment for each endowment, plus an effort to give the Smalley community some predictability. Though subject to change, the following schedule is our best estimate of applications and appointments through 2016.

Given that the J. Evans Attwell/Welch Fellowship is usually capable of carrying two appointments at the same time, we will come as close as possible to an annual solicitation for those positions. The Illig and the Peter and Ruth Nicholas fellowships are on approximately two-year cycles, with occasional exceptions when more time is required to "recharge" the fund.
