Christopher Monahan and Yang-Ting Chien, bridge appointments with William and Mary and Georgia State University, respectively, have been awarded DOE Early Career Awards for 2022. Monahan's research will focus on the three-dimensional structure of the proton, using large-scale supercomputing facilities to calculate the properties of protons and neutrons directly from the strong nuclear force. Chien's award is to probe quark matter and hadronization using energy flow substructure, using modern machine learning alogirthms to search for quark-gluon plasma signatures in jets.

See the Theory Center's most recent Monthly Highlights.

Positions in the Jefferson Lab Theory Center involve research in theoretical hadronic and nuclear physics that motivates and supports Jefferson Lab experiments at 12 GeV and beyond.

Congratulations to Arkaitz Rodas, who was recently appointed as the new JSA/JLab Nathan Isgur Fellow in Nuclear Theory.  Arkaitz was also the recipient of the 2022 JSA Postdoctoral Prize.

The Theory Center anticipates several openings for postdoctoral positions for Fall 2023. Further details will be posted shortly.
