2022 FRIB Achievement Award for Early Career Researchers

The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) invites nominations for the 2022 FRIB Achievement Award for Early Career Researchers.

Award overview

The awards are intended to recognize one outstanding experimentalist and one outstanding theorist in nuclear science, no more than six years past their PhD award date at the time of the nomination deadline, who have made a significant contribution toward FRIB science. This contribution need not directly involve an FRIB experiment. Awardees will receive a plaque with the awardee's name and institution, $3,000 of participant support to attend the annual Low Energy Community Meeting (LECM), and an invitation to present the awarded work at LECM.

How to submit a nomination

Nominations require three letters of support (one of which is from the nominator), a one-page summary from the nominee of the contribution and impact of their work on FRIB, and copies of up to three related publications. Self-nominations will not be accepted. A nomination form can be found here. Once the nomination form is submitted, the letters, summary, and preprints must be emailed to the FRIB Users Organization Executive Committee Secretary. Re-nominations are welcome, but must be resubmitted to be considered.

Questions regarding the nomination process may be directed to:

  • Kelly Chipps (Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Chair of FRIB Users Organization Executive Committee)
