Physics Fellowship Program

The RIKEN BNL Research Center offers a Fellow system at Brookhaven's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) allowing joint appointments with universities and research laboratories throughout the world, enabling talented researchers to hold tenure track positions at their home institution as well as a Fellow position with the Center.

This system was established to increase the research potential of the Center and to disseminate its research activities and results. To date, nine RHIC Physics Fellows have received the U.S. Department of Energy Outstanding Junior Investigator Award and over 50 Fellows have received tenure at their home institutions since the inception of the program.

Institutions interested in initiating a new RHIC Physics Fellow position may obtain details on how to proceed by contacting Maureen McNeill-Shea, 1(631) 344-2758.


RBRC Research Groups

Kharzeev
Theory

D. Kharzeev, Group Leader

This group conducts QCD related research that includes heavy ion physics, the quark gluon plasma, color glass condensate and hard QCD/spin physics.

Izubuchi
Computing

T. Izubuchi, Group Leader

This group's mission is to solve the dynamics of QCD from first principle lattice simulations using in-house computer resources.

Akiba
Experimental

Y. Akiba, Group Leader

This group studies the spin structure of the proton via polarized p+p collisions at RHIC as well as the properties of quark gluon plasma.

The RIKEN BNL Research Center is part of Brookhaven's Nuclear & Particle Physics Directorate.

    RIKEN Lunch Seminar

    "Universality in Classical and Quantum Chaos"

    Presented by Masanori Hanada, YITP

    12:30 pm, Building 510, Room 2-160

    Thursday, August 16, 2018, 12:30 pm

    Hosted by: Enrico Rinaldi

    We study the chaotic nature of classical and quantum systems. In particular, we will study the detail of the Lyapunov growth. We will show the evidence that the spectrum of Lyapunov exponents admits universal description by Random Matrix Theory, and systems dual to black holes exhibit 'strong' universality.
