Nuclear Astrophysics is in essence an interdisciplinary field. We, young and naive researchers,
often feel overwhelmed by the broad scope of the topics covered by the field. The goal of the
JINA Astrophysics Club is to take advantage of the expertise that JINA brings to MSU, and begin
to remedy this situation.
The JINA Astrophysics Club consists of two main activities:
- meetings with nuclear astrophysics seminar speakers to discuss topics of
interest about their research (in a "question friendly" environment).
We regularly meet with speakers from the
JINA Lunch Research
Discussion, and with selected speakers from the
Nuclear Physics seminars (NSCL), and from the
Astronomy seminars (CSCE).
- journal club meetings, where we discuss papers related to the future
seminars. We meet every other week (the week without a JINA talk).
All grad student and post-docs from the NSCL and the PA department are welcome to join!
Those interested should contact Alfredo Estrade (estrade 'at' nscl.msu.edu).
