2018 Michelson Postdoctoral Prize lectures

Posted on September 26, 2018

The 2018 Michelson Postdoctoral Prize was awarded to Tim Linden for his work bridging Astrophysics and Particle Physics. Dr Linden is currently a Center for Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics fellow at the Ohio State University; he received his PhD from the University of California at Santa Cruz. He will spend the week of Oct 1 – 5 in residence in Cleveland during which time he will give three seminars and a colloquium. The Michelson Postdoctoral Prize was instituted in 1997 and is awarded by the CWRU Physics department annually to an outstanding junior scholar in any subfield of physics worldwide.
