Fermilab offers Intensity Frontier Fellowships to outstanding researchers in the areas of neutrino physics, muon physics, and other topics in the Intensity Frontier. Fellows will receive funding to allow enhanced participation in Fermilab experimental and data analysis efforts, in relevant areas of particle physics theory, or in future projects. The fellowships provide the ability for researchers to spend significant time at Fermilab, with the goal of expanding and sustaining an intellectual center of excellence within the laboratory and the department.

We seek researchers with a doctorate in particle or nuclear physics who will use the resources available at Fermilab to make a major contribution to the Intensity Frontier in the areas of physics analysis of experiments, development of relevant particle physics theory, or development of future projects. The Fellowship provides an outstanding opportunity for young scientists to develop an independent research program.

Successful candidates will ordinarily be resident at Fermilab for 50% or more of the duration of the Fellowship.

  • Term: 6 months to 1 year, starting no earlier than September 1, 2016.
  • Renewable to maximum of 2 years, with new proposal.
  • Financial support: up to 50% of researcher's total current compensation, with remainder from researcher's home institution.
  • Candidates must be employed by a U.S. or non-U.S. institution. Retirees and Fermilab employees are not eligible.
  • Awards may include a travel budget to enable regular trips to remote experimental locations when appropriate, and to conferences to present work.
  • A financial plan and a travel plan must be included with all applications.
  • A brief summary of the proposed research should be included in addition to the full research plan.
  • Contact information for a financial contact officer at the home institution should be provided if salary support is requested.
  • Applicants holding postdoctoral positions should indicate the dates of current and expected term of employment, and supply two letters of reference.

There is no legal requirement that Fermilab sponsor an employee for U.S. permanent residence. As a result, Fermilab will make the decision to sponsor an employee on a case-by-case basis. Fermilab will consider the following factors, among others, when determining whether to sponsor an employee for U.S. permanent residence: performance, length of service, long-term need for the position, and cost.

Diverse people. Diverse jobs. Great science.
