We would like to introduce you to three new Fulbright opportunities in Canada. Fulbright Canada offers more than 50 Research Chairs at top Canadian Institutions. Our grants support research with colleagues across Canada for a 4-to-9 month period. US Scholars can do several activities during their Fulbright: conduct research; deliver lectures; network and promote their work; formal teaching (if the awards allow it). 

These opportunities are for a start date of September 2023 or January 2024. Applications are accepted through September 15, 2022.

The National Academies are launching a new study to set a vision for the field of particle physics in the next decade and beyond. Called Elementary Particle Physics: Progress and Promise, or EPP-2024, the study "aims to help federal agencies, policymakers, and academic leadership understand the future prospects for and societal benefits of particle physics research and make informed decisions about funding, workforce, and research directions," according to the National Academies website. The study is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

Maria Spiropulu, the Shang-Yi Ch'en Professor of Physics at Caltech, will serve as a co-chair of the study committee, along with Michael S. Turner (BS '71), senior strategic advisor at The Kavli Foundation and Rauner Distinguished Service Professor emeritus at the University of Chicago.
