University students who have passed all their graduate physics qualifying exams and are ready to choose a thesis topic are eligible to join this program. They arrange for a sponsor in their Physics Department, often a member of the high energy physics group, who is Fermilab’s contact with the university while the student is carrying out thesis research at Fermilab. A Fermilab committee interviews candidates, approves thesis topics, and assures the university of the student’s progress. A Fermilab staff member, approved by both the committee and the university, is the student’s supervisor during the thesis work here. Thesis problems can be in either theoretical or experimental accelerator work.
