Researchers from Lawrence Livermore and Los Alamos national laboratories are among 61 national recipients of DOE’s Early Career Research Program awards for 2013.
LLNL physicist Yuan Ping’s project, selected by the Office of Fusion Research, aims to provide high quality data on critical energy transport properties of high-energy-density (HED) matter.
LANL’s Marian Jandel won for his proposal, “New Data on Neutron Reactions Relevant to Basic and Applied Science,” selected by the Office of Nuclear Physics. Nathan M. Urban, also from LANL, will be supported for his work on “Beyond the Black Box: Combining System and Model Dynamics to Learn About Climate Uncertainties,” selected by the Office of Biological & Environmental Research.
The Early Career Research Program, now in its fourth year, is designed to bolster the nation's scientific workforce by providing support to exceptional researchers during the crucial early career years, when many scientists do their most formative work.
