The Department of Applied Physics has two named Postdoctoral Fellowship awards: The Karel Urbanek and the Marvin Chodorow. Each year, nominees are chosen for each of the awards for a two year fellowship.
The Karel Urbanek Fellowship was created to honor the memory of Karel Urbanek, the founder of Tencor Instruments, known today as KLA-Tencor. The Fellowship was awarded to students until 2002 when it changed to a postdoc award.
The Marvin Chodorow Fellowship was created to honor the memory of Professor Chodorow, whose academic leadership led to the founding of the Department of Applied Physics. He played a leading role in developing the multidisciplinary laboratory now known as the Edward L. Ginzton Laboratory. His theoretical contributions to the design of high power klystrons enabled the construction of the electron linear accelerators used for Nobel Prize winning experiments at Stanford and SLAC and for the X-ray sources that marked the birth of modern radiation therapy.
