Our FECS Chair-Elected Jason S Gardner becomes APS Fellow. Congratulations!

Jason GardnerJason S Gardner was appointed a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS). Scientists who have made extraordinary research developments can be made APS Fellow. The number of APS Fellows elected each year is limited to no more than one half of one percent of the membership. It is a prestigious recognition by peers of his outstanding contributions to physics.

He is honored for his "For leadership in the application of neutron scattering techniques in geometrically-frustrated magnets, for global outreach in neutron scattering and the support of international students andscientists worldwide in their early careers"

Jason Gardner’s scientific interests are primarily in frustrated magnets, but he’s also performed research in many areas of condensed matter over 20 years of study.

He has published over 120 papers giving extraordinary contributions to the research in quantum magnetism and in 2008 was made a fellow of the Institute of Physics (UK). Jason has also been a member-at-large of the APS Forum on International Physics (FIP) from 2015 to 2017 and chaired the Distinguished Student program in the last years. In 2016 was one of the co-founders of the FECS and currently is the FECS Chair-elect.

We are proud to have Jason on board on FECS, and we wish him an exceptional year as Chair in 2019.

Congratulation Jason!

Distinguished Student (DS) Program
The executive committee is happy to announce that the FECS is collaborating with the Forum on International Physics (FIP) to award 8-10 travel grants to excellent foreign students to allow them to present their work at the APS March or April meeting in 2019. As many of you realize, these annual APS meetings are important events to launch careers, and we recognize that many students don't have the resources to take full advantage of this wonderful opportunity. Between 8-10 grants will be awarded to deserving young scientists at a value depending on their perceived needs. If you are, or know of, an excellent, foreign undergraduate or graduate student planning to attend one of the APS meetings we encourage applications through the APS web site. More information on the awards can be found on the FIP webpages.

Please note that the deadline for submission of applications was September 8, 2018.

Good luck!
