Carnegie's newest Staff Scientist, Tim Strobel, is the recipient of the 2011 Jamieson Award, presented during the AIRAPT Conference in Mumbai, India. The Jamieson Award is awarded to an outstanding graduate or post-doctoral researcher in the field of high pressure research.
John Calhoun Jamieson (1924-1983) was Professor of Geophysics at the University of Chicago. Though most of his research used static high pressures, he also performed shock experiments at Los Alamos and SRI International. The Award is supported by the John C. Jamieson Memorial Fund, which was established by a number of Jamieson's former students and colleagues. Bob Schock, a former postdoc of Jamieson and currently Director of the World Energy Council, manages the fund.
