Twelve new Klarman Fellows to pursue innovative, timely research in A&S

Twelve exceptional early career scholars will come to Cornell to pursue research on a wide variety of topics in the social sciences, sciences and humanities as the 2024 cohort of Klarman Postdoctoral Fellows.

This fifth cohort of Klarman Fellows is the largest since the program was launched in 2019 with a major gift from Seth Klarman ’79 and Beth Schultz Klarman. The Klarmans renewed and expanded their support in 2023.

“Klarman Fellows exemplify the spirit of curiosity and collaboration at the heart of the College of Arts and Sciences, thanks to the generosity and foresight of Seth and Beth Klarman,” said Rachel Bean, interim dean of the College. “I am inspired and impressed by the impactful and timely research these gifted scholars will be undertaking together with the College’s stellar faculty members.

The Klarman Fellowships in the College of Arts & Sciences provide postdoctoral opportunities to early-career scholars of outstanding talent, initiative and promise.

“Today’s Klarman Fellows are emerging leaders in their fields, across the humanities, social and natural sciences, making contributions with lasting intellectual, artistic and technological ramifications. The College provides a vigorous and supportive atmosphere where these original ideas and novel investigations can grow and flourish, to the betterment of our world,” said Bean.
