First FRIB-CSC Fellows selected
Five scientists have been selected as the first Facility for Rare Isotope Beams-Chinese Scholarship Council research fellows. Funding for the fellows is provided by the CSC, which will support five fellows every year for two-year visits at U.S. labs and universities involved in FRIB science. The fellow candidates were selected by a joint U.S.-China committee and placed in U.S. research groups interested in hosting a fellow. Theorist Dr. Yinu Zhang of Peking University will be joining the Ohio State University group.
