Richard L. Greene Dissertation Award in Experimental Condensed Matter or Materials Physics

Nominations for the Richard L. Greene Dissertation Award are now being accepted. This award, established by a generous gift from Richard L. Greene at the University of Maryland, will recognize a doctoral thesis research of exceptional quality and importance in experimental condensed matter or experimental materials physics. The award will consist of $2,500, a certificate citing the contributions made by the recipient, and an allowance of up to $1,500 for travel to attend and give an invited talk at the annual APS March Meeting at which the award will be presented. The nomination deadline for the Greene Dissertation Award, for theses submitted after January 1, 2016, is September 1, 2017. For more information visit the award webpage.

It is important to remember the membership of APS is diverse and global, so the prize and award winners as well as Fellows of the APS should reflect that diversity. Nominations of women, members of underrepresented minority groups, and scientists from outside the United States are especially encouraged.
