Mentoring Opportunities on Campus to Work with Undergraduate Students
N3AS would very much welcome the participation of NSD postdoctoral fellows and scientific staff as mentors, including theorists and experimentalists. The research area need not be focused on nuclear astrophysics: our students are interested in a variety of physics areas. If you’d like to learn more, please contact Amanda Dillon (email@example.com) or Wick Haxton (firstname.lastname@example.org).
2021 Service Awards
- Brian Fujikawa and Spencer Klein have reached the milestone of 30 years of service.
- Kymba A’Hearn has reached the milestone of 20 years service.
- Xin Dong reached the milestone of 15 years service.
- Reynold J. Cooper, Heather Crawford and Yuan Mei reached the milestone of 10 years service.
Congratulations Brian, Spencer, Kymba, Xin, Reynold, Heather and Yuan!
Outstanding Referee Recognition
Spencer Klein has been selected as an Outstanding Referees of the Physical Review journals, and was chosen by the journal editors for his distinguished service. The award will be recognized at an upcoming APS meeting. Congratulations, Spencer!
Teaching Scholars Recognized
Teaching Scholars Lisa Claus and Rebecca Carney were honored at the Teaching Scholars Recognition Event in November for having completed over 100 hours of service dedicated to K-12 programs and Career Pathways Office professional development activities. Congratulations, Lisa and Rebecca!
Prof. Orebi Gann has received $10M in funding from the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) to build the EOS experiment and to perform integrated testing of novel neutrino detection technologies at the few-ton scale. EOS will be constructed in Berkeley and the experiment will demonstrate the simultaneous use of Cherenkov and scintillation signals for precision event reconstruction. The technology has the potential to enable the use of neutrinos for remote reactor monitoring as well as impacting a broad program of fundamental science experiments; from searches for neutrinoless double beta decay to measurements of CP violation.
