Loeb awarded Erskine Fellowship in New Zealand

Congratulations to Steve Loeb, Professor and Canada Research Chair in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, who has been awarded a prestigious Erskine Fellowship from the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. The Erskine Fellowship program provides international visitors with the cost of transportation to New Zealand plus local accommodation and living expenses for the visiting fellow and their spouse. 

The Fellowship requires the visiting fellow to interact with the researchers in the department and give a short series of lectures in their area of expertise to senior undergraduate and graduates students - previous Fellows in Chemistry include 2005 Nobel Laureate Robert Grubbs of Caltech.  Loeb will be visiting New Zealand for six weeks in April and May. In addition to his interactions with University of Canterbury, he will also be giving research lectures at other New Zealand universities; University of Auckland, University of Otago and Massey University.

We wish Professor Loeb success in New Zealand, and safe travels!
