Wu-Ki Tung Award for
Early-Career Research on QCD

Sponsored by the CTEQ Collaboration and Michigan State University


Description: The Wu-Ki Tung award is to recognize outstanding contributions made by early-career physicists on experimental or theoretical research on Quantum Chromodynamics. The award is given annually and will consist of a certificate citing the contributions of the recipient and support for travel to a CTEQ Summer School to deliver an invited lecture.

 

Eligibility: Nominees must have received a Ph.D. in experimental or theoretical particle physics within the last seven years, excluding any career breaks, by the time of nomination.

 

Nomination & Selection Process:  The nomination should include the following:

The nomination materials should be downloaded by the nominator here.  

The deadline is August 15, 2018.  Nominations will remain active for one additional year and can be updated.

 

The recipient will be selected by the CTEQ Collaboration and will be notified in December 2018.

 

Past Recipients:
2017: Andrew Larkoski, Reed College
