FRIB-TA Bridge faculty appointment at North Carolina State University
Dr. Sebastian Koenig initiated his Assistant Professor appointment in Jan 2020 at North Carolina State University, Department of Physics. This is the third bridge faculty appointment under the FRIB-TA Bridge Program.
Announcing the FRIB theory fellows of 2020
The FRIB Theory Alliance conducted a search for two new FRIB theory fellows in the Fall of 2019. The search committee received many excellent applications and selected a shortlist of five. The interviews took place in the beginning of December 2019. Following the recommendation of the search committee Chloë Hebborn and Christian Drischler were selected as the two new FRIB theory fellows. Chloë will be hosted by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Christian will be hosted by Michigan State University. Please join the FRIB-TA in congratulating Chloë and Christian and wishing them a successful stay at LLNL and MSU.
Third FRIB Theory Bridge Faculty Position Host Institution Selected
Florida State University has been selected as the host of the third FRIB Theory Bridge Faculty position. All of the proposals were strong and we thank the applicants for their diligent efforts in preparing the submissions. Please join me in congratulating our FL-State colleagues. Details about the FRIB Theory Bridge program and procedures are given: here.

FRIB Theory Alliance EUSTIPEN Program
EUSTIPEN Mission: The Europe-U.S. Theory Institute for Physics with Exotic Nuclei (EUSTIPEN) has been established in order to facilitate collaborations between U.S.-based and Europe-based scientists whose main research thrust is in the area of the physics of nuclei. U.S. participation in EUSTIPEN is in the form of travel grants and subsistence grants to ECT* in Trento to those individuals who are interested in collaborating with European scientists. EUSTIPEN’s purview is in the area of physics of or with exotic nuclei, including nuclear structure and reaction theory, nuclear astrophysics, and tests of the standard model using exotic nuclei. Funding for EUSTIPEN is being provided through the FRIB Theory Alliance by the Office of Nuclear Physics of the U. S. Department of Energy.

If you have an interest in forging new or continuing collaborations with European colleagues, this travel grant is for you. Students and postdocs are encouraged to apply.

Good News!

FRIB theory fellow has accepted staff position at LLNL
Dr. Gregory Potel, an FRIB theory fellow from 2016 to 2019, has accepted a staff position in the Nuclear Data and Theory Group at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. His research is on low-energy reaction theory and he intends to continue being involved with FRIB theory alliance activities. Congratulations Gregory!
