Description

The H.M. Hashemian Mid-Career Award recognizes an individual for sustained outstanding contributions to nuclear instrumentation and control, human factors engineering, or human machine interface over the first 15-25 years of his or her career. The award honors Dr. H.M. Hashemian, internationally recognized expert in nuclear instrumentation and controls and avid proponent of the future generation of nuclear scientists and engineers. The award consists of a plaque and $500 cash award presented at the ANS Nuclear Plant Instrumentation and Controls and Human Machine Interface Technology (NPIC-HMIT) Topical Meeting or at the ANS Annual Meeting, in years that NPIC-HMIT is not held.

Background

This Award was established in 2018 by the ANS Human Factors, Instrumentation & Control Division (HFICD). It is named after Dr. H.M. Hashemian, President and CEO of Analysis and Measurement Services Corporation, recognized leader in I&C, and Fellow of ANS and IEEE. This award highlights the importance of the continued contributions of the upcoming generation of nuclear scientists and engineers in the future developments of nuclear instrumentation and controls and human factors research, development, and deployment.

Selection Method

The Award is given to an individual who has made a sustained significant contribution during the first 15-25 years of his or her career in one or more of the fields of nuclear instrumentation and control, human factors engineering, or human machine interface. This can be exemplified by either one significant achievement or a sustained effort in several engineering projects. Nominees must meet the following criteria:

  • The candidate must demonstrate sustained contribution of at least 15 years to one of the award's areas of specialization;
  • The candidate must be no older than 55 years of age at the time of nomination; and
  • The candidate must have been a registered HFICD member in good standing for at least the previous three (3) years.

Nominations are made with the ANS nomination form accompanied by (1) a narrative summary of about 1,000 words that outlines the nominee's relevant accomplishments and a description of the significance of these accomplishments, (2) a list of ANS-supporting activities (including but not limited to presentations at ANS national and topical meetings, service on division committees, and dates of HFICD membership), (3) a resume or CV, and (4) three to five letters of support from persons familiar with the nominee's accomplishments and their impact. Two letters of support are sufficient if the letters are from individuals other than the sponsor submitting the nomination package.

The Award recipient is selected by the Honors and Awards Subcommittee of the HFICD. It is awarded once per year, if an eligible candidate is nominated and selected.
