Sponsored by the CTEQ Collaboration and Michigan State University
The Wu-Ki Tung award is to recognize outstanding contributions made by early-career physicists on experimental or theoretical research on Quantum Chromodynamics. One or, in exceptional cases, two awards will be given annually, each with a monetary prize of $5,000, travel support to give an invited lecture to a CTEQ Summer School, and a plaque citing the contributions of the recipient. Nominations of candidates whose work has contributed to the interplay of theoretical and experimental research on QCD are especially encouraged.
Serving a diverse and inclusive community of physicists worldwide is an important goal for CTEQ. Nominations of women and other members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged.
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:
- A curriculum vitae;
- A list of the nominee’s most important publications;
- A brief narrative of the nominee’s contributions to QCD research (up to 2 pages long);
- A nomination letter and two letters of support from scientists familiar with the nominee’s work.
The application website will become available in Spring 2023. Nominators can suggest an award citation for their nominee. 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 2023.
