PhD student Ben Carlson receives URA Visiting Scholar award

Carnegie Mellon PhD student Benjamin Carlson has received a URA Visiting Scholar award to work on the “Search for Supersymmetry with the CMS Detector with Low Missing Transverse Energy”.  The award supports his research while visiting Fermilab for one year.

The URA Visiting Scholars Program at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory was established in 2007 as a five-year program to support visits by researchers from the Universities Research Association, Inc. (URA) institutions to work at Fermilab for periods of up to one year in areas such as high energy physics experiments, astrophysics, theory, accelerator physics, materials science, and computer science. Resources for this program are made available by the 86 URA member institutions.

Visits can range from attendance at Fermilab conferences and summer schools to year-long stays at the Lab. Proposals may be submitted twice a year, in February and August. Support provided by the program may include the following: travel and local lodging expenses during a series of short visits or salary support and round trip travel expenses for an extended visit.
