Five Rutgers professors named fellows of national science association

NEW BRUNSWICK/PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Five Rutgers professors are among the 251 scientists the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has elevated to the rank of fellow. The pre-eminent U.S. scientific organization has honored these association members for their efforts toward advancing science or fostering applications considered scientifically or socially distinguished.

"This national recognition accorded to five members of the Rutgers faculty as outstanding scientists affirms the excellence of our faculty and Rutgers' status as a major public research university," said University Vice President for Academic Affairs Joseph J. Seneca. "Rutgers is gratified by the personal recognition our professors have achieved in this prestigious selection process and by the role these faculty play in educating the next generation of scholars and researchers and advancing their disciplines through their research."

Jolie A. Cizewski, professor in the department of physics and astronomy, Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS)-New Brunswick, was cited by AAAS "for outstanding research in elucidating dynamical symmetries and parameter limits in the excitation of heavy atomic nuclei." Cizewski, a resident of Martinsville, joined Rutgers in 1986. She studies the structure of heavy atomic nuclei at the limits of stability, angular momentum and elongation, performing experiments at national and university nuclear accelerator facilities in the United States and abroad. She is the graduate program director in physics and astronomy, and this year is teaching the seminar in physics course, required of all first-year graduate students.

Joan G. Ehrenfeld, professor in the department of ecology, evolution and natural resources at Cook College, was cited by AAAS "for outstanding scholarship at the interface of ecosystem ecology, plant ecology and restoration ecology." Ehrenfeld, a resident of Highland Park, joined Rutgers in 1990 and teaches courses on wetland ec
