The Neutrino Theory Network (NTN) is an effort to strengthen the US neutrino theory community and its impact on the US neutrino experimental program. The Department of Energy (DOE) has provided funds for the current year to support this round of NTN activities.

The Neutrino Theory Network will be reviewing proposals to carry out work on theoretical nuclear, particle, or astroparticle physics aimed at directly benefiting the current, near-future, and future US-based experimental neutrino program, broadly-defined. Priority will be given to research efforts related to neutrino-matter interactions and closely-related topics that will directly impact the physics reach of current and next-generation experiments, including the flagship analyses of LBNF-DUNE.

Awards can be used to partially or fully fund the salary of students, postdoctoral fellows, and university or national laboratory faculty for a period up to six months, and, in the case of students and postdocs, can be renewed for another six months.

A written report is to be submitted at the end of the award period and before renewal requests are considered. In the case of graduate students, the award can also be used to cover tuition costs. Funds can also be requested to spend all or part of the time of the proposal at another US University or National Laboratory; we encourage proposals where a significant part of the proponent’s time is spent at another Institution. In the case of university or national laboratory faculty members, it is expected that resources will be used to partially fund a sabbatical at a different US university or national laboratory. During the entirety of the requested award period, candidates must be employed by a US institution. The amounts allocated will depend on the quality and number of the submitted proposals, to be evaluated by the NTN Scientific Advisory Board.

All US institutions with a physics department with interest in the US experimental neutrino program are welcome to submit proposals.

Structure of the proposal

Proposals should have a single Principal Investigator (PI) and should clearly identify the institution which will receive the funds in case the proposal is approved. Full proposals should contain the following documents (in the case of funding for students and postdoctoral fellows, proposals should come directly from their advisor/supervisor)

Research proposal (2 pages): summary of research project and researches involved, benefits to the neutrino theory effort in support of the experimental neutrino program A one paragraph summary of the proposal including the PI and her/his institution, the scientific importance of the proposal and its impact on the DOE mission, and a summary of the activities to be funded (see example in http://ntn.fnal.gov/example/); A detailed budget (1 page) and, if applicable, travel plan, including overhead of institution that will receive the funds and appropriate contact at PI's institution Short curriculum vitae of principal investigator (3 pages maximum) In the case of students and postdoctoral fellows: one letter of support
