Graduate student Emily Kuhn has been awarded a NASA Postdoctoral Program (NPP) fellowship for her proposal “Instrument Development for Next-Generation Radio Telescopes”. After graduating next year, Kuhn will be headed to the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Fall of 2022 to continue working on instrumentation for 21cm radio cosmology experiments.
According to the NPP website, NPP “provides early-career and more senior scientists the opportunity to share in NASA’s mission, to reach for new heights and reveal the unknown so that what we do and learn will benefit all humankind.”
“NASA Postdoctoral Fellows work on 1 to 3 year assignments with NASA scientists and engineers at NASA centers and institutes to advance NASA’s missions in earth science, heliophysics, planetary science, astrophysics, space bioscience, aeronautics, engineering, human exploration and space operations, astrobiology, and science management.”
“NASA Postdoctoral Program Fellows contribute to our national scientific exploration, confirm NASA’s leadership in fundamental research, and complement the efforts of NASA’s partners in the national science community.”
