The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) National Technical Nuclear Forensics Center (NTNFC) is inviting U. S. colleges and universities to apply for the Nuclear Forensics Research Award (NFRA).
The NFRA supports the establishment of a team of faculty,
students, and technical staff at the national or defense laboratories to conduct research in the field of nuclear forensics.
NTNFC was tasked with two core missions:
to provide national-level integration, centralized planning, and stewardship for the National Technical Nuclear Forensics (NTNF) community; and to lead the U. S. Government (USG) in establishing a robust and enduring pre-detonation radiological/nuclear materials forensics capability.
A top priority of DNDO/NTNFC’s stewardship mission is to lead USG efforts in addressing the enduring challenge of sustaining a preeminent Nuclear Forensics (NF) workforce of recognized technical experts and leaders through fostering scholastic and research collaboration between and among academia, the national and defense laboratories, and the NTNF Interagency.
