First EEB postdoctoral fellows bring accomplishment, ambition

Three stellar early-career scholars bringing multi-disciplinary scientific exploration, collaboration and community engagement will be the first MSU Presidential Postdoctoral Fellows in Ecology, Evolution and Behavior.

Cinnamon Mittan, Daniela Palmer and Olivia Smith will be the first cohort of the fellowship, created to increase the breadth and potential of research embracing ecology, evolution and behavior at MSU, announced EEB Director Elise Zipkin. They will begin their work in the 2021-2022 academic year.

“The MSU EEB community is thrilled to have landed outstanding researchers who also have a passion for building community and contributing to equity and inclusion in science,” Zipkin said. “The MSU presidential postdocs will catalyze new research projects across a diverse set of labs, building bridges within and across EEB, which is a fundamental goal of the fellowship program.”
