Alumna Jacqueline Faherty earns prestigious Hubble Fellowship


Jacqueline Faherty, a Cool Star Lab PhD graduate who is currently an NSF International Postdoctoral Fellow at Universidad de Chile, has been selected as one of 17 Hubble Fellows in 2013.  One of the most prestigious postdoctoral fellowships awarded in astronomy, the Hubble Postdoctoral Fellowship Program supports outstanding postdoctoral scientists whose research is broadly related to NASA Cosmic Origins scientific goals as addressed by any of the missions in that program: the Herschel Space Observatory, Hubble Space Telescope (HST), James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA), and the Spitzer Space Telescope.

Lab PI Adam Burgasser was also a Hubble Fellow (2001-2004), as was one of his PhD advisors Michael Brown (1994-1997).  This makes Jackie one of the few “Hubble grandchildren”.
