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 (reduced) tuition. Fellows will remain matriculated at their home universities but be in residence at Fermilab.
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, model building, neutrino physics, perturbative QCD, lattice gauge theory, astrophysics, and cosmology. The research environment at Fermilab, while theoretically rigorous, is nourished by close connections with the laboratory's experimental programs.
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 on our web page.
Citizens of all nations are welcome to apply, but if you are not a U.S. citizen, you must have a valid visa. In all cases, applicants must be Ph. D. students at a U.S. university.
The program for 2012–2013 is subject to available funds.
Fermilab is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer, m/f/h.
