Nuclear Technology searches for a new technical editor
At the recent ANS Annual Meeting, Andrew Klein, the current editor of ANS’s journal Nuclear Technology, announced his retirement at the end of his term in June 2023. ANS is looking for qualified members who are interested in becoming the next technical editor of the journal. The selected person will be appointed “editor-designate” and will work with Dr. Klein for a period of time before taking over the full editor’s role.
Klein, professor emeritus at Oregon State University and past ANS president, took over the duties of technical editor in 2015, a few years before his term as ANS president. During his tenure as editor, Dr. Klein has raised NT ’s reputation for technical excellence and arranged a schedule of twelve issues annually covering the most important topics in nuclear technology.
The 2022-2023 scholarship applications are now closed and all the recipients have been selected. If you were not able to submit an application this year, you are welcome to apply for the 2023-2024 cycle when the application period opens in November.
