den Aufbau und die Handhabung astronomischer Instrumente, entwickelt seine
Vorstellungen zum Weltbau auf heliozentrischer Grundlage, ohne feste

Abraham Pais Award for the History of Physics
---------------------------------------------

The American Physical Society and the American Institute of Physics have
established a major new award, the Abraham Pais Award for the History of
Physics, which will recognize outstanding scholarly achievements in the
history of physics. A renowned theoretical particle physicist and historian
of physics, Pais died in July 2000. Among historians, he is best known for
his book Subtle is the Lord: The Science and the Life of Albert Einstein,
which won the 1983 American Book Award in Science. 

The award will be given annually and consists of $5000, a certificate
citing the recipient's contributions to the history of physics, and funds
to travel to an APS meeting to receive the award and deliver an invited
talk on the history of physics. The award is the first to be established
specifically for the history of physics.

The first selection committee will be chaired by Roger H. Stuewer
(University of Minnesota) and other members are Allan D. Franklin
(University of Colorado), Lillian Hoddeson (University of Illinois,
Urbana-Champaign), Anne J. Kox (University of Amsterdam), and Spencer R.
Weart (AIP). The first award will be conferred in 2005. Nominations are due
by May 1, 2004, and should be sent to Stuewer. For further information, see
the website of the APS Forum on History of Physics
http://www.aps.org/units/fhp/pais/index.html .

The Pais Award will usually be given to a single person but in any case to
no more than three individuals and is open to scholars of all
nationalities. 

For the past two years, an award establishment committee has been working
on the concept and then the fundraising. The initial goal of $100,000 to
establish an endowment has been reached. A major contribution came from
John and Elizabeth Armstrong, who gave $30,000 outright and provided
another $30,000 in matching funds to challenge other donors. Fundraising to
cover travel expenses and to raise the amount of the award is continuing,
according to Benjamin Bederson (New York University), who chairs the award
establishment committee. Other members are Stephen G. Brush (University of
Maryland), Gloria B. Lubkin (AIP), Harry Lustig (APS treasurer emeritus),
Michael Riordan (Stanford University and University of California, Santa
Cruz), Stuewer, and Weart.

Conference in Prague: Science in contact
----------------------------------------


Science in contact at the beginning of the scientific revolution

Prague, Czech Rep., June 23 - 27, 2004

First Announcement


The conference will be hosted by National Technical Museum in Prague.
  
The EU Commission has decided, in accordance with the EU programme for
cultural support - Cultura 2000 - to grant a three-year network support to
the institutions responsible for the care and maintenance of the legacy
left by the astronomers and scientists who founded our modern world view.
The scientists in question are Nicolaus Copernicus, Tycho Brahe, Johannes
Kepler, Galileo Galilei and Isaac Newton. 

The network, which is co-ordinated by Landskrona Cultural Department
(Sweden), shall be operative during 2002-2004, and will focus on
interpreting and enlivening how the knowledge of our modern worldview
evolved as a result of scientific co-operation within Europe.

The top of the scientific part of the project should be a conference
"Science in contact at the beginning of the scientific revolution".

Location and meeting schedule 

Preliminary time schedule of the conference:
June 23, 2004, 5-8 pm: Arrival  of  participants, registration (at the NTM)

Scientific programme and call for contribution

The themes for the conference shall be as following:

Ways of circulating scientific results of fundamental importance in Europe. 

Creation of research centres (Hven, Kassel, Prague, Florence, Cambridge
etc). Travels of scientists and their ideas.

Acceptance, rejection or proof of ideas and speculations of the period up
to commencement of scientific research. 

Instruments used in this and their development and influence on scientific
knowledge. 

Precision of observation and discovery and formulation of natural laws.
Some of the leading figures of this stage: Copernicus, Galileo, Brahe,
Kepler, Newton and people around them.

Merits of free movement of scholars. 

Science and technology - ideas circulating very rapidly internationally.


We plan on organizing sessions about above mentioned topic and panel

Stellenanzeige: Curatorial Post at Greenwich 
--------------------------------------------

CURATOR - HISTORY OF TIMEKEEPING

GBP 20,000 - GBP 30,000 + benefits * Greenwich


Recognised throughout the world for its innovative and entrepreneurial
approach, the National Maritime Museum aims to illustrate for everyone the
importance of the sea, ships, time and the stars and their relationship
with people. The Royal Observatory at Greenwich forms part of NMM and is
the international home of time. We are looking for an exceptional
individual to champion the study of the history of timekeeping and actively
research our relevant collections within the broader disciplines of the
history of science and maritime history. These are exciting times to be
joining our team: we are about to embark on a GBP 15 million project: Time
& Space which will include a state-of-the-art astronomy centre and new
displays that explore mankind's quest to understand time and the universe.

This new post will be central to these developments, as you will
communicate the excitement and relevance of the history of timekeeping to a
diverse range of people, from schoolchildren to academics. Encompassing
research, education and web-based interpretation work, this expansive brief
will see you work with the Senior Curator of Horology and the Exhibitions
team to develop new galleries and displays, promote the collections to a
wide audience and publish work within the academic context that interprets
the significance of the collections.

We are looking for an exceptional candidate with a proven track record
within the history of science field who can place our scientific and
technological collections into a broader historical and maritime history
context. You will have a postgraduate qualification or experience in a
relevant subject area, an active research profile and published work. We
are not necessarily looking for an horologist, but you must have the
ability to develop the necessary practical-based skills to analyse this
material for research purposes. Above all, we are looking for a genuine
enthusiasm for the subject matter and collections, together with excellent
communication and team-working skills.

Apply now by sending your CV and covering letter, quoting reference R/CHT,
to: Human Resources, National Maritime Museum, Park Row, Greenwich,
London SE10 9NF, or by email to recruitment@nmm.ac.uk

We regret that we are unable to reply to every applicant. If you do not
hear from us within three weeks, please assume you have not been
shortlisted.

Closing date for the receipt of applications: 2 February 2004.
