The Banting post-doctoral fellowship, provided by the National Science and Engineering Council of Canada, is named after Sir Frederick Banting who discovered insulin in 1921 (Nobel prize of 1923).

Reynold Silber was selected as one of 23 recipients from extremely broad areas including science and engineering, social science and humanities.

Silber will be working in Karato’s lab to study the properties of minerals with the focus on plastic deformation and hydrogen-related defects in olivine.
