Fermilab
Wilson Fellowship in Experimental Physics 2018
(Associate Scientist)

Open Date: 08/01/2017

Close Date: 10/27/2017



Description

The Wilson Fellowship at Fermilab seeks applications from Ph.D. physicists of exceptional talent with at least two (2) years of post-doctoral experience. The Fellowship is awarded on a competitive basis and is intended to support outstanding assistant professor-level physicists early in their careers. It provides unique opportunities for self-directed research in experimental physics through work on the Fermilab particle physics experiment of the candidate's choice. The Fermilab experimental program includes collider physics, studies of neutrino, muon, and astroparticle physics as well as R&D and planning for experiments at future colliders and high intensity beams.

The Wilson Fellowship provides an annual salary fully competitive with a university assistant professorship. The appointment is for an initial term of three (3) years and there exists the possibility for renewal for an additional two (2) years upon completion of a successful review after the first two (2) years; thereafter, the potential exists for eventual appointment without term limit.

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

Abide by all environment, safety, and health regulations.
