MIT's Laboratory for Nuclear Science (LNS) and Physics Department invite nominations for the fourth Lee Grodzins Postdoctoral Fellows Lecture Award. The award is created to recognize the importance of original and unique work by postdoctoral fellows within the experimental nuclear and particle community.

This award is presented in honor of Lee Grodzins, who, in 1955, began a postdoc position in Maurice Goldhaber's nuclear physics group at Brookhaven National Laboratory. There, Grodzins, Goldhaber and Andrew Sunyar performed groundbreaking measurements of the helicity of the neutrino. Their work has been key to our understanding of the weak interaction. This was the start of a long and distinguished career for Lee Grodzins that included a professorship at MIT from 1959–1998, and leadership of several companies.

Postdocs in any area of experimental nuclear and particle physics who are within the first five years of their Ph.D. can be nominated. Exceptions to this timeframe will be made for those postdocs who have taken health or family leave. Please contact us if you have any questions.

The Lee Grodzins Fellow will give a Laboratory for Nuclear Science Colloquium and receive a $2,000 prize.
