Clay Fellowship Lectures

Endowed by a gift from Landon and Lavinia Clay, the Clay Fellowship is a four year program for postdoctoral scholars. Clay Fellows pursue independent research of their own design. Every year, new Clay Fellows present a one hour Lecture describing their research. More information about the Clay and other CfA Fellowships is available on the CfA Postdoctoral Opportunities site.
