- Karl Schliep, a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in Professor David Flannigan's group, is one of seven scientists selected for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) National Research Council (NRC) Postdoctoral Research Associate Program. NIST's Postdoctoral Program supports a nationwide competitive postdoctoral program administered in cooperation with the National Academy of Sciences/National Research Council. The postdoctoral program brings research scientists and engineers of unusual promise and ability to perform advanced research related to the NIST mission, introduces the latest university research results and techniques to NIST scientific programs, strengthens mutual communication with university researchers, shares NIST unique research facilities with the U.S. scientific and engineering communities, and provides a valuable mechanism for the transfer of research results from NIST to the scientific and engineering communities.
This prestigious position is exceedingly competitive, with only the top 6% of applicants receiving the honor. Awardees are chosen through a national competition administered by the National Research Council of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine. The NIST award provides a significant opportunity for advanced training to a highly select group of scientists and engineers who give special promise of becoming creative leaders in research. At NIST, Schliep will work in the Material Measurement Lab in the Materials Science and Engineering Division and collaborate with a team to develop a high repetition rate pulsed transmission electron microscope for the study of switching phenomena in magnetic materials.
