The Lederman Fellowship at Fermilab is an exceptional opportunity for Postdoctoral candidates with demonstrated ability in research and strong interest in education and outreach. Lederman Fellows have a choice in Fermilab’s broad experimental program including research at the LHC, neutrino physics, astroparticle physics, and other areas within the HEP program. In recognition of Leon Lederman’s commitment to the teaching of physics at all levels, Fellows are expected to participate in educational outreach efforts, for example, the "Saturday Morning Physics" program.

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

Respect, understand, and value individual differences that embody the principles of diversity. 

Abide by all environment, safety, and health regulations.
