We've got the 2008 version of El Naschie's Curriculum Vitae in the lower part of this post: Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire. Briefly review the Honors and Awards section.
Something's missing, and I don't mean the Nobel Prize.
He's up to his armpits in medals, shields, certificates, and the like. But has this great physicist really never had a post-doctoral research grant?
(By the way, for non academics reading this who may jump to the conclusion that he didn't get them because he's so rich: That's not how it works. They're not like need-based scholarships. They are awarded solely on scientific merit, and rich scientists value them no less than poor scientists.)
El Naschie is asking us to believe that he was made a full professor without ever having received a single research grant. That's possible in theory, I suppose, but it makes the "full professor" claim less and less plausible.
