This group will include Ellen Price, who is receiving her Ph.D. from Harvard. In her respective fellowship, Ellen will be hosted at the University of Chicago.


The 51 Pegasi b Fellowship is named for the first exoplanet discovered orbiting a Sun-like star. This fellowship provides exceptional postdoctoral scientists with the opportunity to conduct theoretical, observational, and experimental research in planetary astronomy. The fellowship features up to $375,000 of support for independent research over three years, allowing time and space to establish distinction and leadership in the field, as well as mentorship and involvement with their host department.
