Fermilab Director Search

On September 10, 2021, current Director Nigel Lockyer announced that he will step down in Spring 2022 after eight years at the helm of America’s premier particle physics laboratory. In October 2021, the Board of Directors of the Fermi Research Alliance, LLC appointed a committee to conduct an international search for the next director of Fermilab.

The Fermilab Director Search Committee, led by Walter Massey, is conducting a broad international search. This website provides the latest information about the status of the search process. The Search Committee welcomes input on the search process or the names of any potential candidates. Please share any comments (which will be held in confidence) through: Fermilab@spencerstuart.com.
