We Are

The Lederman Fellowship at Fermilab is intended to attract exceptional postdoctoral candidates who have demonstrated outstanding ability in research and who, in addition, have a strong interest in education and outreach. Lederman Fellows are free to choose any area in Fermilab's broad experimental program for performing their research, including neutrino physics, LHC research with the CMS experiment, astroparticle physics, intensity frontier experiments such as Muon g-2 and Mu2e, quantum information science, and quantum sensor research. In recognition of Leon Lederman’s commitment to the teaching of physics at all levels, Fellows are also expected to participate for a fraction of their time in education. An example would be the "Saturday Morning Physics" program or other outreach. Candidates not selected for the Lederman Fellowship may be considered for other Research Associate opportunities at Fermilab.

The Lederman Fellowship is a 3-year appointment with the possibility for extension of up to two (2) additional years.

We Are Looking For

• Candidates should have obtained a Ph.D. in experimental particle physics, astrophysics, or a closely related field after September 1, 2020, or should expect to obtain a Ph.D. in one of the same fields by September 1, 2022. • Demonstrated exceptional ability in research. • Ability to participate in physics outreach. • Abides by all environment, safety, and health regulations. • Contribute effectively within a diverse workforce and upholds Fermilab’s commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion.

Physical Activity and Work Conditions

• Human Factors: Mental Concentration, Sitting, and Standing
