Brian Schmidt gets his fellowship extended

johnboy 30 March 2012 3

The ANU is letting it be known that:

Professor Brian Schmidt and his team will continue their ground-breaking work with the help of a $1 million extension of his Australian Laureate Fellowship.

The substantial funding extension was announced by Senator Chris Evans this morning.

“This additional funding will allow Professor Schmidt to undertake world-class research while continuing his important role as a strong advocate of Australian science,” Senator Evans said.

It’s amazing what winning the Nobel Prize can do!

Looking forward to seeing a (free) talk by Brian (aka @cosmicpinot) at CSIRO Discovery Centre on Wednesday evening.

Oh and in case you missed it, Charlie Bolden, the NASA Administrator will be talking at ANU on Tuesday evening.
