Thomas H Stix Award for Outstanding Early Career Contributions to Plasma Physics Research
The American Physical Society (APS) represents physicists in academia, national laboratories and industry in the United States and throughout the world.
The Society’s Thomas H Stix Award for Outstanding Early Career Contributions to Plasma Physics Research is presented annually to recognise an individual researcher who has made outstanding contributions (theoretical, experimental, computational or technical) in plasma physics early in their career. Areas of plasma physics covered by the award include, but are not limited to, fundamental plasma physics, fusion plasmas, astrophysical or space plasmas, low-temperature plasmas, or high-energy-density plasmas.
Eligible candidates are early career researchers of all nationalities regardless of the geographical site at which the work was done. An early career researcher is defined as an individual in the first 10 years of a research career (ie at most 10 years following the award of a PhD).
Nominators and nominees do not have to be APS members.
The prize consists of $3,000, a certificate citing the contributions made by the recipient and an allowance for registration and travel to the Division of Plasma Physics Annual Meeting.
Nominations should be submitted online by the closing date of 3 April 2023.
