Presented at the
NPIC-HMIT Topical Meeting
or the ANS Annual Meeting, in the years that NPIC-HMIT is not held
The Ted Quinn Early Career Award recognizes an individual for outstanding early-career contributions to nuclear instrumentation and control or human-machine interface technologies.
The award consists of a plaque and monetary award of $500 presented annually at the ANS Nuclear Plant Instrumentation and Controls – Human Machine Interface Technology (NPIC-HMIT) Topical Meeting or at the ANS Annual Meeting, in the years that NPIC-HMIT is not held. No funding for travel reimbursement of meetings attendance is anticipated.
This award was established by the ANS Human Factors, Instrumentation & Control Division (HFICD) in 2017. It is named after Mr. Ted Quinn, President of Technology Resources, recognized leader in nuclear instrumentation and controls, and past ANS President. This award highlights the importance of young members in the future developments of nuclear instrumentation and controls and human factors research, development, and deployment. This award is fully-funded by a $15,000 contribution by Mr. Quinn.
The award is given to an individual who has made a significant contribution early in their career in one or both of the fields of nuclear instrumentation and control 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:
Nominations must include the completed nomination form accompanied by the following supporting documents:
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.
Nomination forms and supporting documents (in Word or Adobe Acrobat) should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
