Friday, September 16, 2011

In the past six months, four former students or post-docs of Prof. Robert Behringer have received tenure or other honors. They are as follows:

  • Karen Daniels, NC State
  • Corey O'Hern, Yale
  • Jeff Olafsen and his wife Linda Blue, Baylor
  • Matthias Sperl now has a permanent position as group leader in charge of a granular group at the DLR in Germany (their equivalent of NASA)

Also, some slightly older news, Behringer's former post-doc Brian Utter received tenure from James Madison about a year ago, former post-doc Lou Kondic is now full prof in math at NJIT, and former student Mark Shattuck is tenured at City College. Former post-doc Jie Zhang just received three outstanding offers from universities in China, and he will return in January.
