Biography: Prof. Roy Weinstein is a Professor of Physics, Head of the Beam Particle Dynamics Group, and Task Leader of TCSUH's HTS Trapped Field Applications Lab at the University of Houston. He received his B.S. and Ph.D. in Physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1951 and 1954, respectively.

Weinstein was Assistant Professor at Brandeis University and a researcher at MIT's Institute for Advanced Studies between 1954 and 1956. He was an Assistant Professor at MIT between 1956 and 1959.

In 1959 and 1960 Weinstein was an NSF Fellow at the Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, Denmark. He was an Associate Professor at Northeastern University between 1960 and 1963 and a Professor of Physics at Northeastern until 1982, when he became a Professor of Physics at UH. Weinstein has also been an NSF Fellow at Stanford in 1967 and again in 1969 and 1970; a member of the Cambridge Electron Accelerator Policy Advisory Committee between 1967 and 1969; a Guggenheim Fellow at Harvard in 1970 and 1971; Chair of the Northeastern Department of Physics between 1975 and 1982; a member of the Stanford Magnetic Calorimeter (MAC) Collaboration between 1977 and 1986 and a MAC spokesperson in 1982 and 1983; a Visiting Scholar at Stanford in 1981 and 1982; Dean of the UH College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics between 1982 and 1988; a member of the Texas Accelerator Center Program Management Committee between 1984 and 1990; a member of the Houston Area Research Center Board of Directors between 1985 and 1987; a member of the LVD Executive Committee in Gran Sasso, Italy, since 1988; head of the UH Beam Particle Dynamics Group since 1985; and Associate Director and Spokesman for TCSUH between 1987 and 1989.

He was presented the Strong Pinning Center Award for High Jc by the Joint ISTEC/MRS Program Committee of the 1997 International Workshop on Superconductivity and his research was ranked as second of ten leading results in materials science research supported by the U.S. Army Research Office in 1995 and 1996.
