John Ryan Peterson has been awarded the DOE NNSA Laboratory Residency Graduate Fellowship. During the fellowship tenure, he will collaborate with scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to develop compact x-ray and gamma-ray sources.
HEDS doctoral student Griffin Glenn has been awarded a Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Stewardship Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE NNSA SSGF). This fellowship provides financial support and professional development opportunities to students pursuing a Ph.D. in fields of study that solve complex problems critical to stewardship science.
Ben Ofori-Okai learned the difference between an MD and a PhD at a younger age than most when someone introduced his father, a chemist, as “Dr. Ofori-Okai.”
“I was only 4 years old, but I remember thinking, ‘My dad’s not a doctor. He doesn’t treat people,’” Ofori-Okai says. “That’s when I learned that there was a different kind of doctor: a scientist.”
The liquid sheets – less than 100 water molecules thick – will let researchers probe chemical, physical and biological processes, and even the nature of water itself, in a way they could never do before.
The Jack Eddy Postdoctoral Fellowship is sponsored by the NASA Living With a Star program and is designed to train the next generation of researchers in the emerging field of Heliophysics. John "Jack" Eddy (1931-2009) was a pioneering solar researcher, and was honored with the debut of the Jack Eddy Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2009. The fellowship will support me for postdoctoral research at Princeton University, hosted by Professor Amitava Bhattacharjee.
The NIF user office announced 10 new discovery science awards for NIF shot time beginning in the spring of 2018. Two of these experiments, selected from among 26 proposals submitted last summer, are led or co-led by SLAC scientists investigating cosmic ray acceleration and brown dwarfs physics.
A member of our Science Directorate’s High Energy Density Science (HEDS) division, Frederico Fiuza, is among the 49 winners of the Department of Energy’s 2016 Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) Leadership Computing Challenge.
Dr. Will Schumaker and Dr. Bhuvanesh Ramakrishna were awarded a USD$2,000.00 travel grant through the American Physical Society's International Research Travel Award Program (IRTAP).
This program, established in 2004, seeks to promote international scientific collaborations between APS members and physicists in developing countries.
