The APS Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity Alliance (APS-IDEA) has the mission of empowering and supporting physics departments, laboratories, and other organizations to identify and enact strategies for improving equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). It is doing so by establishing a community of transformation.

About 70 teams from universities, large labs, and collaborations have joined the Alliance. Groups of ~five teams have been formed to create  topical cohorts. Each topical cohort has a facilitator that leads (virtual) meetings and guides the cohort's learning.

Facilitator responsibilities include:  (1) Facilitating a topical cohort, including convening, preparing for, and facilitating monthly Zoom meetings of the cohort during the academic year (7 meetings per year), and participating in a cohort slack channel; (2) Attending APS-IDEA online workshop(s) (2 per year); (3) Participating in a community of practice with other facilitators and APS-IDEA steering committee members, which may include participating in facilitator coffee hours, the facilitator slack channel, training opportunities, strategizing with the steering committee; and (4) other miscellaneous activities.

Facilitators will be contracted for a scope of work, not billable hours. The following estimates are considered reasonable expectations, but facilitators are responsible for managing their time. Overall, the estimated time commitment is 1 to 2 hours/week on average. For the six months: facilitating the cohort is expected to take approximately 15 hours; attending workshops is expected to take 4 hours; participating in the facilitator community of practice is expected to take approximately 6 hours; miscellaneous activities, approximately 4 hours. Total: approximately 30 hours over six months.  Facilitators will be appointed for six months and receive pre-tax compensation of $3,000, paid quarterly.  The appointment may be renewed.  Facilitator appointments may be ended at any time for cause or failure to perform expected responsibilities.

Thank you for applying for the APS-IDEA Facilitator role! If you have any questions, please email ruiz@aps.org.

Recognition Details & Expectations of Programs

The IUPE award will recognize up to three programs each year and will focus on entire undergraduate physics programs rather than individual members of a department. The COE seeks to recognize improvement and success at all types of institutions, ranging from large research universities to small colleges. Applications will be judged within the appropriate context to the greatest extent possible.  

It is neither expected nor required that any given program will exhibit improvement in all of the applicant program achievements described on the Award for Improving Undergraduate Physics Education web page.  It is expected that recognized programs will have excelled in one or more of those areas.

Please complete the form below with relevant data and attach your narrative, supplementary materials and supporting letters, as a single PDF:

Your two- to three-page narrative should include:

  • A clear outline of the improvements and achievements for which the program is seeking recognition.
  • A description of the overall undergraduate physics program at the institution, including the curriculum at both the introductory and upper-division levels, the student populations served, any regional factors, resources and facilities, and other information that is relevant to establishing the excellence of the program.
  • A summary of relevant data and documentary evidence to support claims of improvement, transformation in the program, growth, impact, and other successes for which the program is seeking recognition. Data provided should show evidence that improvements have been sustained over a period of at least a few years

Supplementary materials (of up to 10 pages) will be accepted, but the two to three page narrative should describe programmatic efforts completely, independent of supplements.

Additional supporting letters may be included but are not required.

If you have any questions please email the APS Education Department.

Rules & Eligibility

The applicant must be an APS-DBIO member at the time of application, without restrictions on their nationality or the geographic site at which the work was done.

Biological physics researchers with at most 7 years of full time activity since starting their first independent position as of the initial nomination deadline (June 3, 2024), allowing for career breaks (e.g., due to child or dependent care, illness, military service, etc.), are eligible. The application package must explicitly state the date that the applicant started their first independent position, and any career breaks.

The award is open to researchers from all disciplines that contribute to the advancement of biological physics, broadly construed, including experimental, computational, engineering, or theoretical approaches. The prize recognizes the fundamentally interdisciplinary nature of research in biological physics. The postgraduate degree and/or current affiliation of the applicant can be physics or a related field.

The applicant cannot be a previous recipient of the award.

The applicant cannot be a member of the award selection committee.

No current member of the DBIO Executive Committee may apply for this award. If an Early Career member’s term ends on their final year of eligibility, they will be allowed to submit an application at most 1 year past their final eligibility date (no more than 8 years of full time activity).

Application & Selection Process

Deadline: Monday, June 3, 2024

Any eligible applicant may submit one application each year. The application should include:
