Nomination: Candidates may nominate themselves for the Tollestrup Award. The nomination will consist of a CV and list of publications and invited talks, a written statement (of no more than five pages) from the candidate describing the research, and no more than two letters of support from scientists familiar with the work. The research may be conducted in collaboration with others, or as part of a larger project. The award is for a particular research project conducted during the nominee's postdoctoral years, demonstrating the nominee's own scientific insight and creativity. The statement submitted as part of the nomination, and the supporting letters, should focus on that project and the nominee's contribution to it.
A committee appointed by the Fermilab director will select the most outstanding work. The recipient will be notified in May 2016 and will be invited to present the work in a talk at the annual Fermilab Users' Meeting. The recipient of the award will receive a certificate of recognition and a check for $4,000 from URA.
All nomination material should be sent in electronic form (pdf or plain text is preferred) to the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org by April 1, 2016.
