The Radcliffe Institute has a unique ability to help attract stellar talent to the Harvard faculty by providing fellowship opportunities. Radcliffe Professors are distinguished scholars and Radcliffe Assistant Professors are promising new faculty—all of whom are part of the multidisciplinary Radcliffe Institute Fellowship Program during their first years at Harvard.

Marine Denolle will join the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences in the Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences in January 2016. She will be an Assistant Professor in the department and an Assistant Professor at the Radcliffe Institute. During her fellowship year, she will be the Radcliffe Alumnae Fellow.
Denolle's work focuses on understanding earthquake sources and on predicting their ground motion in populated areas. Denolle obtained her PhD in geophysics from Stanford University and is currently a fellow at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography—University of California, San Diego.
Cora Dvorkin joins the Department of Physics in the Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences. In addition to being an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics, she is the Shutzer Assistant Professor at the Radcliffe Institute.
Dvorkin studies questions in fundamental physics that can be tested with cosmological data, including theories related to inflation, dark matter, dark energy, and neutrinos. For this purpose, she uses data from the Cosmic Microwave Background and the large-scale structure of the universe. She earned her PhD in the Department of Physics at the University of Chicago and has conducted postdoctoral work at the School of Natural Sciences at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, and at the Institute for Theory and Computation at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
Past Radcliffe Professors include:
Joanna Aizenberg, a pioneer in the field of biomimetics and now the Amy Smith Berylson Professor of Materials Science, was recruited to the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences with a Radcliffe Professorship, the Susan S. and Kenneth L. Wallach Professorship.
Learn more about Aizenberg's work at the forefront of engineering and biology, and the unique role Radcliffe has played in her multidisciplinary work.
Mahzarin R. Banaji was the first recipient of Radcliffe's Carol K. Pforzheimer Professorship, awarded when she joined the Harvard psychology faculty from Yale. When she and colleague Anthony G. Greenwald were fellows at the Radcliffe Institute they began work on the acclaimed book Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People.
