The FRIB Theory Alliance is seeking outstanding candidates for two FRIB Theory Fellows, one at Michigan State University and the other at a Partner Institution. The successful candidates will conduct independent or collaborative research at a Partner Institution on nuclear structure, reactions, astrophysics, and/or fundamental symmetries relevant to the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB). The FRIB Theory Alliance is a consortium of universities and national laboratories actively engaged in theoretical research in FRIB science. FRIB will be a new national user facility for nuclear science, funded by the DOE Office of Science and operated by Michigan State University.
The FRIB Theory Fellowship is a 2-yr position with the possibility of renewal for a maximum of 5 years. The initial stipend is $77k and this position has an annual travel budget of up to $5k. This FRIB Theory Fellow will be an employee of Michigan State University stationed at a Partner Institution by mutual agreement. The successful candidates must demonstrate great promise for high scientific achievement in FRIB science and are expected to advance into an open faculty or permanent staff position in the field within 5 years of their initial appointment.
The Hosting Institutions and host contact information are:
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory – Erich Ormand: email@example.com
Indiana University - Charles Horowitz: firstname.lastname@example.org
Michigan State University - Filomena Nunes: email@example.com
The application deadline is October 21, 2019.
Submit your application at Academic Jobs Online, Job Posting 14317
Applicants should also communicate their interest with a specific Institution listed above. If you have any questions please contact Charlotte Elster: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each bridge position will support a new faculty member at a University or a new staff member at a National Laboratory with a 50% cost share with the host institution for a period of up to six years, starting as early as Spring 2020. Requested information is appended below.
The FRIB-TA invites all departments at universities and national laboratories participating in FRIB-TA science (see fribtheoryalliance.org), with an interest in partnering with the FRIB-TA in the Bridge Program, to submit a proposal. Further details and guidance in preparing such proposals are available at
FRIB Theory Alliance Proceedures
For any clarifications, please contact the FRIB-TA managing director (email@example.com).
The proposals should be sent electronically to the Chair of the FRIB-TA Bridge Committee, Baha Balantekin (firstname.lastname@example.org), cc to Gillian Olson (email@example.com), by October 11, 2019.
Subject to the availability of funding, the results of the selection will be made public through the FRIB-TA webpage and communicated to all applicants. With this timeline, the hosting institution is expected to develop a Memorandum of Understanding with FRIB-TA and initiate a search late Fall 2019 to fill the position as early as Spring 2020.
The program topics ranged from theoretical overview of EDMs, experimental overview of EDMs, EDMs at different energy scals from moecules to BSM physics, nuclear theory for calculating nuclear moments at different lenght scales and translation of nuclear effects into atomic observables. The program was attended by 38 people.

TALENT Course 6 included sixteen graduate students. Twelve students were from the United States, and four were from Asia, Europe, and Africa. The students were introduced to modern methods of describing nuclear reactions. They developed an understanding of methods employed in simplifying the many-body reaction problem. They also gained experience with describing nuclear reaction data.
