Dissertation Prize

The Dissertation Prize is presented, normally on an annual basis (beginning in 2017), to recognize an outstanding theoretical or experimental doctoral dissertation (or the equivalent) in laboratory astrophysics. The prize is awarded to an individual who has completed their PhD or equivalent degree in any of the three calendar years immediately preceding the award year. The prize includes a cash award, a framed certificate, and an invited lecture by the recipient at a meeting of the Division.

The Laboratory Astrophysics Division (LAD) of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) annually invites nominations for the Dissertation Prize. For information on the nomination process please go to the Call For Nomination page.

The deadline for receipt of the nomination package and supporting letters for the Dissertation Prize is by 11:59:59 pm EST on 31 December each year.
