National Nuclear Physics Summer School



Introduction and important deadlines

Since 1988 the National Nuclear Physics Summer School (NNPSS) has brought together talented graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and prominent lecturers to discuss the exciting recent developments and future directions in nuclear science. The 2012 NNPSS is organized by the Los Alamos National Laboratory and will be held July 9 - July 20, 2012 at St. John’s College in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Students and postdocs within a few years of their PhD are invited to take advantage of this opportunity to network and learn about the future directions of nuclear physics.

Inquiries and applications should be sent to Applications will be accepted until April 30, 2012. Applicants should send a short CV, including education, employment, research interests and 3 most significant papers (or research projects) to the above email address. A short letter of recommendation that clarifies how the applicant will benefit from the summer school is desirable.  For all selected applicants the summer school will cover lodging, breakfast, and lunch.In general, participants will be responsible for their own travel costs, dinners, and extracurricular expenses.  

The 2012 NNPSS will cover a broad range of topics, including QCD and heavy ion physics, hadron structure and spin physics, nuclear structure and reactions, nuclear astrophysics, fundamental symmetries and neutrinos, lattice QCD, cold atoms, NIF physics, and medical applications of nuclear science.

The application deadline for the 2012 NNPSS has passed.

Organizing Committee: Joe Carlson, Vincenzo Cirigliano, Ivan Vitev

The 2012 NNPSS is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the US Department of Energy's Institute for Nuclear Theory, and the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
