Researchers interested in engaging with the University of Nebraska’s National Strategic Research Institute to conduct research related to nuclear security are encouraged to attend an April 15 workshop, “Identifying the Right Federal Sponsors for Your Nuclear Security-related Research.”
This interactive session is 2-3 p.m. in Room 152 of the Prem S. Paul Research Center, 2200 Vine St. Registration is encouraged.
Christopher Yeaw, NSRI’s research director for nuclear programs, will provide an overview of the potential research opportunities that are applicable to engineering, physical sciences and social sciences. These opportunities span the entire range of nuclear security issues, including deterrence policies, threat analysis, weapon materials and design, nuclear command and control, war gaming, planning and decision support, nonproliferation, nuclear detection and forensics, counterterrorism and education.
Additionally, Yeaw will lead an in-depth discussion based on faculty research interests and be available for future one-on-one consultations.
The workshop is free and open to NU faculty. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
For more information, contact Kathy Partlow, senior proposal development coordinator, 402-472-4066.
