Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Researcher Competition

From the more than 1800 graduate students and postdoctoral researchers involved in the EFRC program, each of the 46 EFRCs was invited to nominate one graduate student and one postdoctoral researcher to present a talk at the 2013 EFRC Principal Investigators’ Meeting. The DOE EFRC management team then selected 22 finalists to present a talk at the EFRC Principal Investigators’ Meeting in Washington, D.C. on July 18 – 19, 2013. At the meeting, teams of DOE program managers selected the top three graduate students and postdoctoral researchers based on how well the research exemplified the opportunities provided by the EFRC funding modality and scientific excellence. The winners received an award certificate from Harriet Kung, Associate Director of the DOE Office of Basic Energy Sciences, during a ceremony at the end of the meeting.

The abstracts of all the finalist talks can be found here.
