2024 FRIB Achievement Award for Early Career Researchers

The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) invites nominations for the 2024 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, and $3,000 participant support to attend the annual Low Energy Community Meeting (LECM), this year to be held at the UT Conference Center in Knoxville, Tennessee from 7-9 August, where they will deliver a plenary talk on their awarded work. 

How to submit a nomination

Nominations, due by 11 p.m. (EST) on 7 March 2024, require three letters of support (one of which should be the nominator’s), a one-page summary from the nominee of the contribution and impact of their work on FRIB science, CV, and copies of up to three related publications. Self-nominations will not be accepted. The nomination form to be filled in by the nominator can be found here.

After submitting the nomination form, supporting documents (i.e. the letters, summary, CV and preprints) must be emailed to FRIB Users Organization Executive Committee Secretary Andrea Richard by 1 March 2024. The subject line of the email should read: “FRIB early career award 2024” “Nominee’s full name” “either THEORY or EXPERIMENT”
