The Department of Computer Science at Cornell University is pleased to announce that two of their faculty have been selected as Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellows. Dr. Lillian Lee, Assistant Professor at CS, and Dr. Andrew Myers, Assistant Professor at CS are among those receiving Sloan Fellowships this year.

The Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship is an extraordinarily competitive award, involving nominations for most of the very best scientists from around the country.  Selection procedures for the Sloan Research Fellowships are designed to identify those who show the most outstanding promise of making fundamental contributions to new knowledge. Sloan Research Fellows, once chosen, are free to pursue whatever lines of inquiry are of the most compelling interest to them.  The Fellowship carries with it a grant of $40,000, to be used over a two-year period in support of research.
