Assuming continuation of funding, the User Group awards an annual "JSA Thesis Prize" for the best Jefferson Lab related thesis in a given calendar year. The prize includes a monetary award and travel to the Annual User Group Meeting (typically in June of the following year), where the prize is awarded and the winner gives a presentation on her or his research. The deadline for submission of nominations for any given year is usually in late January of the following year.

For the 2011 competition, the deadline is January 31, 2012 (we thank JSA for once again fully funding this prize). A complete package requires a nomination letter by a senior scientist giving the name and institution of the person being nominated and the names of three people who will send letters of recommendation, along with a copy of the thesis, preferably electronically. The three letters of recommendation should ideally be sent before the deadline, as well; they must be sent within a week of the deadline to give the candidate the best possible chance of winning.
 
  
Theses completed during the calendar year 2011 are eligible, as well as theses completed during the last quarter of 2010 (if they haven't been submitted before). The thesis prize submissions will be judged initially by members of UGBoD, followed by a panel of independent experts to select the final winner. Criteria for evaluation are: quality of written thesis (40%), contribution of student to work (30%), impact of work (15%), service to JLab physics (15%). On behalf of the judges, we strongly encourage students considering a submission to keep their theses as short as possible (preferably under 200 pages). All materials must be sent by email to Lorelei Carlson (lcarlson at jlab.org). Please contact the chair of UGBoD (skuhn at odu.edu) for any questions.

Annual Prize

The JLUO BoD will award the "2020 JSA Thesis Prize" for the best Jefferson Lab related thesis at the Annual Users Organization meeting this summer..


For the 2020 competition, the deadline is March 1, 2021 C.O.B. EST (we thank JSA for once again fully funding this prize). A complete package requires:

  • a nomination letter by a senior scientist giving the name and institution of the person being nominated and the names of three people who will send letters of recommendation
  • a copy of the thesis.
  • the three letters of recommendation must be sent before the deadline, as well; it is up to the nominator and the candidate for the Prize to follow up on this.
  • All materials must be submitted electronically to Lorelei Carlson (lorelei@jlab.org)

Theses completed during the calendar year 2020 are eligible, as well as theses completed during the last quarter of 2019 (if they haven't been submitted before). JSA employees and individuals receiving other support from the 2021 JSA Initiatives Fund Program are not eligible for this prize. The thesis prize submissions will be judged initially by members of JLUO BoD, followed by a panel of independent experts to select the final winner. Criteria for evaluation include quality of the written thesis, contribution of the student to the work, and contribution to JLab physics/community.


Please contact the vice chair- of JLUO BoD (Carlos Munoz Camacho <munoz@jlab.org>) for any questions.
