URA Thesis Award submissions now accepted

Fermilab and the Universities Research Association invite submissions for the fourteenth annual URA Thesis award competition. The award recognizes the most outstanding thesis based on work on an experiment located at Fermilab or carried out together with Fermilab scientists.

Nominations must be submitted to Steve Brice by March 1 and should include two letters supporting the merits of the thesis being nominated. For work carried out together with Fermilab scientists, one of the letters should come from one of those scientists.

The URA Thesis Award Committee will select the winners. The committee members will judge each thesis on clarity of presentation, originality and physics content. To qualify, the thesis must have been submitted as partial fulfillment of the Ph.D. requirements in the 2010 calendar year, be written in English and it must have been submitted in electronic form to the Fermilab Publications Office in accordance with Fermilab policy.
