Summer Science Internships Jefferson Lab hosts dozens of interns at the lab every summer. Various internships open to high schoolers and undergraduates offer exciting, hands-on opportunities for students to learn about science and accelerator science. Know of a student that fits the bill? They can apply here.
TRANSVERSE SINGLE-SPIN ASYMMETRY IN REAL PHOTON PRODUCTION
A new paper studies semi-inclusive production of real, high-transverse momentum photons in unpolarized and polarized lepton-proton collisions. The spin asymmetry in this process is generated by dynamical quark-gluon-quark correlations in the nucleon through the so-called soft-fermion and hard-pole contributions. This process will allow a point-by-point scan of the quark-gluon-quark matrix elements in semi-inclusive lepton-nucleon scattering experiments, such as those planned at the Electron-Ion Collider. DOE OFFICE OF ENFORCEMENT - NOV. 19-22
A team from the Department of Energy Office of Enforcement will be on-site Tuesday, Nov. 19 - Friday, Nov. 22, to investigate recent safety events. If you are asked to speak with the team, please answer their questions openly and honestly. For questions, contact Tina Johnson at x7611. IT DIVISION MAINTENANCE - NOV. 19
The Information Technology Division is planning a maintenance period from 5-10 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 19. During this time there will be short network outages from 5-6 p.m. The IT Division will release patches to all Windows and Linux Common User Environment-managed systems and servers, as well as updates to core CUE software, such as Firefox and Thunderbird. During this time, there will be short overnight central service outages to web servers and other central services to finalize patch installation. Plan on rebooting your CUE-managed Windows or Linux Desktop no later than Friday, Nov. 22, to finalize patch installation. For questions, contact the IT Division Help Desk at x7155. PRESSURE SYSTEMS SAFETY AWARENESS - NOV. 15
On Friday, Nov. 15, from 10-11 a.m., in CEBAF Center room F324-325, the lab is offering a Pressure Systems Safety Awareness (SAF130A) course. The course will cover basic safety considerations and provide insight into the required process for design, fabrication, testing, inspection, maintenance, repair and operation of pressure systems. Led by engineering division manager, Will Oren, the training is open to all but will be especially beneficial for operators and technician supervisors. To register,click here. For questions, contact Erica Jones at x5699. 2019-2020 BEAMS ROLE MODEL VISIT SIGN-UP
The Science Education Team is on the hunt for volunteers to serve as BEAMS (Becoming Enthusiastic about Math and Science) Role Models. Role Models provide students with insight into their position at the lab, why they do what they do, and what makes it all fun!
By sharing your role at the lab, students are able to visualize their learning and its application in the real world. You don't have to be in a math or science field to participate; anyone can share!
Volunteer sessions are only fifteen minutes long. To sign up, click here. For questions, contact Rhonda Bellat x7663. VETERANS MONTH
Did you know that more than 10% of Jefferson Lab employees and Users are Veterans? The lab is recognizing Veterans all month long through our Employee Spotlight series hosted under the Meet Our People section of our website. Don't forget to thank our lab Veterans by signing the giant appreciation poster in CEBAF Center before the end of the week!

GUIDO ALTARELLI AWARD 2020
The Guido Altarelli Award 2020 is presented to junior scientists for outstanding scientific contributions to the fields covered by the Deep Inelastic Scattering conference series. Qualified candidates should have a maximum of eight years of research experience following their Ph.D. The deadline to apply for the award is Friday, Dec. 20. For more information or to apply, click here.
MOMOs THANKSGIVING ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT MENU - NOV. 21
It's time to break out the stretchy pants... MOMO's has released their Thanksgiving Menu! The Thanksgiving Warm-Up Menu will be served Thursday, Nov. 21, from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. in the CEBAF Center atrium, at only $13.50 (includes tax). The all-you-can-eat menu includes:
Apple cranberry sauce.
Spinach salad with craisins, candied pecans, blueberries, apples and feta cheese.
HOLIDAY PIES BY MOMOs - NOV. 22
Oh, it's time. Pie time, that is. MOMO's is now accepting orders from their extensive dessert list. All pies are homemade and are available for pick up Tuesday, Nov. 26 - Wednesday, Nov. 27. The deadline to order is Friday, Nov. 22. Choose from:
CHILDREN'S HOLIDAY PARTY - DEC. 7
Bring the whole family and join the JAG to ring in the holiday season during our annual Children's Holiday Party! Enjoy crafts, games, balloons, face painting, a bounce house and more inside CEBAF Center! Sip on warm beverages and enjoy scrumptious food to kick off your holiday season.
The big man himself will make an appearance with a photographer on-site to capture those life-long memories with Santa. Per holiday tradition, the U.S. Marines will pick up all Toys for Tots donations. Please place all unwrapped, unused toys in any of the collection boxes located across the lab.
The Children’s Holiday Party celebration takes place Saturday, Dec. 7, from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. For questions, contact Dan Moore at x5927.
EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT - DONALD BROWN - U.S. AIR FORCE
"I wanted to see the world, and so I did two times over," says Donald Brown of his time in the military. Donald served as a munitions specialist and weapons safety technician for the U.S. Air Force from 1985 to 2012. Donald says the ability to work with people and effectively communicate and solve problems are some of the standout skills he learned during his time in the service.
He began his career at the lab in 2015 and now supports Facilities and Logistics Management Division as a materials and supply/stockroom specialist. To learn more about Donald's military service, click here.
