Michigan State University is designing and establishing the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), a scientific user facility for the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC). FRIB will enable scientists to make discoveries with rare isotope beams. The FRIB Project has been baselined at $730 million and will be completed in June 2022. The FRIB Project enjoys enthusiastic support from the university community, the university administration, the Nuclear Physics Program, DOE-SC, and the nuclear science community. We are looking to add motivated individuals who want to build the world's leading rare isotope facility.
