We Are:
Fermilab is America’s premier laboratory for particle physics and accelerator research, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. We support discovery science experiments in Illinois and at locations around the world, including deep underground mines in South Dakota and Canada, mountaintops in Arizona and Chile, and the South Pole. 

We are strategic risk takers, innovators, and collaborators. We are engineers, scientists, technicians, administrative professionals. We are 1,800 employees advancing knowledge for the benefit of humankind. Fermilab has been at the forefront of particle physics for more than 40 years. We build world-leading accelerators and detectors to conduct some of the most advanced particle physics experiments possible. We collect and analyze the data from those experiments with some of the most powerful computers in the world. We conduct this research on a 6,800-acre prairie, 35 miles outside Chicago, a treasure that has been designated a National Environmental Research Park.

The Joint Task Force Initiative Postdoctoral Fellowship (https://www.fnal.gov/pub/forphysicists/fellowships/

The JTFI (Joint Task Force Initiative) Postdoctoral Fellowship program developed by Fermilab and the University of Chicago supports new and innovative research in particle physics by increasing the diversity of early-career researchers who demonstrate academic leadership and resilience in the face of adversity. Overview: The JTFI Postdoctoral Fellowship seeks outstanding candidates who are underrepresented in STEM, such as Women, Black, American Indian, Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander, and Latinx researchers in scientific, engineering and computing disciplines. 

The Fellowship is an opportunity for emerging researchers to be immersed in a leading-edge research and development environment through collaboration with experienced, deeply knowledgeable and often world-renowned scientists and engineers. The Fellow can choose to join one of the many existing research groups at Fermilab or initiate a new research track aligned with Fermilab’s mission. 

Each year, a JTFI Postdoctoral Fellow will be selected by a Fermilab search committee. The selected Fellow will receive full support from the University of Chicago to carry out their research at Fermilab. 

The Fellowship package includes: 
The Fellow will also be supported through Fermilab’s mentor programs and by laboratory resource groups tasked with sharing knowledge, strengthening professional networks, and assuring equity and inclusion for each member of the lab community.
