Samantha Gildersleeve Accepts NASA Postdoctoral Fellowship

Samantha Gildersleeve, a Ph.D. Candidate at CeFPaC, recently accepted an offer to the NASA Postdoctoral Program. The NPP Fellowship appointment offers unique research opportunities to highly-talented US and non-US scientists to engage in ongoing NASA research projects at a NASA Center, NASA Headquarters, or at a NASA-affiliated research institute. These one- to three-year Fellowship appointments are competitive and are designed to advance NASA’s missions in space science, earth science, aeronautics, space operations, exploration systems, and astrobiology.

As a postdoctoral scientist, Samantha will conduct research of national importance and will collaborate with distinguished US and international researchers.  NASA Postdoctoral Program Fellows have made significant research contributions that have advanced specific science efforts of NASA and the body of general scientific knowledge, in the areas of astrophysics, earth science, aeronautics, biology and astrobiology, cosmo-chemistry, heliophysics, planetary science, and technology development.
