The 2010 physics Nobel prize has been awarded to Andre Geim (UK) and Konstantin Novoselov (UK) for their groundbreaking 2004 experimental discovery of graphene. . . . If you think that Geim looks very young, then notice that Novoselov is his graduate student.
Novoselov's quest to land a decent tenure track position probably just got a lot easier. But, he may have to get a more respectable press photo now.
I should have used a different tense. He *was* a grad student when he made the discovery in 2004. Now he's faculty, of course.
He probably doesn't have tenure yet. And, anyway, winning for something you did while a graduate student is sitll pretty impressive.
Hopefully he will reduce the length of his CV.
I mean, after you read "Nobel" do you have to read any further?
