Members of the Precision Measurement and Fundamental Constants Topical Group are invited to nominate candidates for Fellowship in the APS. Our topical group is delegated the opportunity to select approximately two new APS Fellows from nominations submitted to the APS and designated as our topical group candidates. It is an important function of the Topical Group to participate in this selection procedure in order to provide recognition for important contributions to our field of research.
GPMFC nominations will be reviewed by the Fellowship Committee, which is chaired by the Vice-Chair of the Topical Group. Please notify the chair of the Topical Group of relevant nominations or intent to nominate someone. If suitable candidates are not identified by the membership at large, nominations will be initiated by the Fellowship Committee.
