Chluba awarded for his work on cosmological recombination
The Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics, a nationally-supported research centre hosted by the University of Toronto, recognized one of its postdoctoral fellows, Jens Chluba, for his "outstanding research work at CITA".
Chluba is the twelfth recipient of the Beatrice D. Tremaine Postdoctoral Fellowship. He was nominated for his work on the detailed physics during the cosmological recombination epoch, and in particular the cosmological recombination history.
The Tremaine fellowship was established by the father of CITA co-founder Scott Tremaine, Vincent Tremaine, in memory of Beatrice D. Tremaine to honour her lifelong interest in mathematics, science and learning.

About the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics. The Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics (CITA) is a world-class, nationally supported, research centre for studies in theoretical astrophysics and related subjects hosted by the University of Toronto. The primary missions of CITA are to foster interaction within the Canadian theoretical astrophysics community and to serve as an international centre of excellence for theoretical studies in astrophysics. CITA receives research support from a collaborative special project grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), as well as the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR). More information about CITA and the work of its researchers is available at http://www.cita.utoronto.ca.
