US Participation:
Provide travel and local support for U.S. visits to JUSTIPEN

The Japan-U.S. Theory Institute for Physics with Exotic Nuclei (JUSTIPEN) has been established in order to facilitate collaborations between U.S. and Japanese scientists whose main research thrust is in the area of the physics of nuclei. JUSTIPEN is located at the RIKEN RIB Experimental Facility in Wako, near Tokyo, Japan. U.S. participation in JUSTIPEN is in the form of travel grants and subsistence grants to those individuals who are interested in collaborating with Japanese scientists. JUSTIPEN’s purview is in the area of physics of or with exotic nuclei, including nuclear structure and reaction theory, nuclear astrophysics, and tests of the standard model using exotic nuclei. While JUSTIPEN primarily focuses on theory collaborations, experimentalists with theoretical collaborators in Japan are also encouraged to apply. Funding for JUSTIPEN is being provided by the Office of Nuclear Physics of the U. S. Department of Energy. Additional local support is provided by the University of Tokyo and RIKEN.

If you have an interest in forging new or continuing collaborations with Japanese colleagues, this travel grant is for you. Students and postdocs are encouraged to apply. JUSTIPEN supports both short-term trips and longer term visits.

You can apply for a JUSTIPEN travel grant by filling out the on line Web form.
