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 have a choice in the broad progam of experimental work at Fermilab which includes research at the LHC, neutrino physics, astroparticle physics, and research at the Intensity Frontier. 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, for example through the program of "Saturday Morning Physics", or other outreach.
Candidates should have obtained a Ph.D. in experimental particle physics, astrophysics, or a closely related field after September 1, 2014, or should expect to obtain a Ph.D. in the same fields by September 1, 2016.
Term of Appointment
The term is for three years with the possibility of up to a two year extension.
