Summer Visitors’ Program

The Theoretical Physics Department hosts its Summer Visitors’ Program each year during the months of May–August.

Applicants for this program should be Ph. D. theoretical physicists, who wish to spend approximately two weeks at Fermilab and are actively involved in research related to the Fermilab mission. Fermilab will provide suitable on-site housing, if available, plus a modest per diem, for selected participants. No travel expenses will be provided.

Applications must be received by January 15, 2018.

To apply

Please send one e-mail message with the following information to the Theoretical Physics Department’s administrative assistant, Olivia Vizcarra.

You will receive an e-mail message confirming the receipt of your application within a week:

PhD year
E-mail address
Institution/university mailing address
Dates you are interested in participating

Please note: access to on-site housing is severely limited, so flexibility in your requested dates greatly increases your chances of being able to participate.

Purpose of your planned visit

Please include the name(s) of anyone in the group with whom you’d like to collaborate and the subject(s) to be discussed.
Citizenship and Visa status
Housing requirements

For those of you traveling alone, the housing choices are dorm room or shared house/apartment (private bedroom) with other theory visitors, if this can be arranged.
For those coming with family members or companions, we will provide you with an appropriately sized on-site house/apartment.  Please specify number of bedrooms preferred, names of all accompanying persons and age of any children.
Flexibility in your dates is especially important.


No CV or list of publications is necessary.

We will use inSPIRE or the eprint arXiv, if we are unfamiliar with your research.
