We anticipate to continue awarding the JSA Annual Postdoctoral Prize for outstanding postdocs working at Jefferson Lab (contingent on funding by the JSA Initiatives Funds).

The Prize competition is run by the Users Group Board of Directors. The Prize is for funding of a research project of the candidate's choosing - in fact, the award is based (in part) on the originality and quality of this proposed research.

The ground rules are:

  • All nominees must be within 5 years of graduation, and in a

postdoc or equivalent position at the time of nomination. You do not have to be an experimental postdoc working at a university to apply - JLab and theory postdocs are also eligible to apply. Previous winners are not eligible to apply.

  • Entries should include a research statement (3 page limit) and CV

by the nominee, along with three letters of reference. The research statement should describe past work and future plans and should include a preliminary budget. All materials may be emailed in separately.

  • The competition will be judged by the Users Group Board of

Directors.

  • The basis for picking the top candidate includes a record of

accomplishment in physics, a planned high-impact Jefferson Lab physics program, proposed use of the research grant, and promise of further accomplishments in the Jefferson Lab research fields in the future.

  • The Prize will be in the form of a research grant.
