Samuel Marateck Fellowship in Quantum Field Theory Physics

The Samuel Marateck Fellowship in Quantum Field Theory Physics in the Department of Physics and Astronomy has been established with a $500,000 bequest from the Estate of Samuel Marateck. Dr. Marateck, who earned his Ph.D. in physics from Rutgers in 1967, became an award-winning teacher in the New York University Computer Science Department, while maintaining a life-long interest in physics.

The fellowship will be used to support a Physics and Astronomy graduate student who is studying quantum field theory, based on academic merit.
