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 research in neutrino physics, research at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), astroparticle physics, and research in intensity frontier experiments such as Muon g-2 and Mu2e. 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.

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