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 […]
The Wilson Fellowship is a tenure track program aimed at physicists of exceptional talent with post-doctoral work experience. The fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis and support physicists early in their careers by providing unique opportunities for self-directed research in experimental physics. Fellows will work on the Fermilab particle physics experiment of their choice. […]
Fermilab participates in the Graduate Education for Minorities (GEM) program open to minority students (American Indians, African Americans, Mexican Americans and Puerto Rican Citizens) enrolled in their junior or senior year in an engineering discipline. The ability and commitment to pursue graduate studies are required. The GEM Consortium, through participating employers’ fees, provides financial support […]
The John Bardeen Engineering Fellowship is designed to provide entry-level opportunities for outstanding engineering graduates who are interested in working in a cutting edge research environment. Fermilab provides opportunities in the fields of electrical, electronics, radio frequency systems, power distribution, super- conducting magnets, super-conducting RF cavities, mechanical, materials science, cryogenic, and civil engineering.
The NPC’s fellowship program is envisioned to bring the international neutrino community to Fermilab to engage with the neutrino community at Fermilab, for short to medium term visits. This includes both experimentalists, working on Fermilab experiments, and neutrino theorists.
The Peoples Fellows program targets entry-level accelerator physicists, specialists in accelerator technologies, and high energy physics post-doctoral researchers who wish to embark on a new career in accelerator physics or technology. Postdoctoral experience is not a prerequisite for the position.
Fermilab and the Universities Research Association will once again make an award for the most outstanding thesis written on research conducted at Fermilab or in collaboration with Fermilab scientists.
Appointments are awarded on a competitive basis from among the applicants for first postdoctoral appointments in experimental physics at Fermilab. The term is for three years.
