The Peoples Fellowship was created at Fermilab with the goal of attracting outstanding accelerator scientists early in their careers, both to enhance Fermilab’s capabilities in accelerator science and related technologies, and to train and develop the accelerator scientists and technologists who will carry our field forward in the future. The Peoples Fellows program targets entry-level accelerator physicists, specialists in accelerator technologies, and high energy physics post-doctoral researchers who wish to embark on a new career in accelerator physics or technology.

Peoples Fellows have extraordinary latitude in choosing their research activities and are provided with significant research support. Current areas of research that are of interest at FNAL include (but are not limited to): optical stochastic cooling, high intensity proton beams, high intensity neutrino sources, muon storage rings, superconducting magnets, superconducting RF, linear colliders, high luminosity hadron colliders, beam-beam effects and their compensation, accelerator controls and feedback, high power target stations, and computational physics and modeling.

Fermilab seeks Peoples Fellows candidates with outstanding credentials who have the potential to be leaders of the field.

Respects, understands and values individual differences that embody the principles of diversity.

Abide by all environment, safety, and health regulations.
