Barbara Jacak, NSSC Focus Area Lead for Nuclear and Particle Physics, Director of the Nuclear Science Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and UC Berkeley Professor, has been notified that she will receive the 2019 Tom W. Bonner Prize in Nuclear Physics from the American Physical Society. Her selection recognizes her “leadership in the discovery and characterization of the quark-gluon plasma, especially her contributions to the PHENIX experiment and its explorations of jets as probes.” She will receive the award at the APS annual meeting in March 2019.
There is an immediate opening for a postdoctoral researcher joint between the Department of Nuclear Engineering and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. The position will involve algorithm development work related to the advanced detection, localization and identification of nuclear and radiological sources using wearable sensors.
