Fermilab Fellowships in Theoretical Physics
Fermilab announces fellowships for graduate students at U.S. universities
who are in the research phase of graduate study in theoretical particle
physics or theoretical astrophysics.
These fellowships will last for one year (12 months), generally starting in the Fall.
They will carry a competitive stipend as well as allowances for travel and
Fellows will remain matriculated at their home universities but be in residence
To be eligible, prospective fellows must identify a Fermilab supervisor from the scientific staff of either the Theoretical Physics Department or Theoretical Astrophysics Department. These departments offer strong and exciting research opportunities in collider physics, neutrino physics, perturbative QCD, lattice gauge theory, model building, astrophysics, and cosmology. The research environment at Fermilab, while theoretically rigorous, is nourished by close connections with the laboratory's experimental programs.
Applications will be taken through academicjobsonline (if needed, select FFThPh2013). Applicants must submit a CV and a plan for research while at Fermilab. Applicants should arrange for their university supervisor to submit a letter of recommendation explaining not only the applicant's suitability for fellowship but also how research at Fermilab would enrich the applicant's graduate studies. Finally, the Fermilab staff member supervising the student's research will have to prepare a short written summary of research goals during the fellowship. This summary may be written after the application has been submitted, but it is highly recommended that applicants contact potential supervisors as soon as possible. The selection committee will facilitate connections between applicants and potential Fermilab supervisors. Fermilab theorists' contact information can be found by clicking on the departmental links at the bottom of this page.
Further details for the coming Academic Year can be found here.
Citizens of all nations are welcome to apply, but if you are not a US citizen or permanent resident, you must have a valid visa. In all cases, applicants must be Ph D students at a US university.
