During graduate work at Arecibo, Richard Lovelace discovered the period and location of the Crab Nebula pulsar Discovery of the Period of the Crab Nebula Pulsar. After appointments as research associate at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory and the Laboratory of Plasma Studies at Cornell, he came to Cornell as assistant professor in the Department of Applied Physics in 1972. From 1973 to 1974, he was a visiting scientist at the Princeton University Plasma Physics Laboratory. In 1975, he invented the Dynamo Model for the magnetic origin of astrophysical jets on July 10, 1975 in Urbino, Italy (Invention of Dynamo Model; transparencies of Urbino talk).In 1984, Lovelace was appointed Professor at Cornell. In 1990, he was elected a Guggenheim Fellow and named a Visiting Professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Texas at Austin. In 1994, he was elected an Overseas Fellow at Churchill College and named Visiting Scientist at the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge England. From 1997 to 2000 he was Divisional Associate Editor for Physical Review Letters for Plasma Physics. In 1999 he was Orsan Anderson Visiting Scholar at Los Alamos National Laboratory. In 2002 he became a Fellow of American Physical Society. He has been Associate Editor Physics of Plasmas since 2003.
