    The year 1956 was mistakenly repeated in the neutrino timeline accompanying the story, "The Neutrino's Past and Future" (FERMINEWS, Vol. 23, No. 14, August 4, 2000, pp. 7-8). Left out was the year 1975: "A new lepton, the tau, is discovered by a group led by physicist Martin Perl at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. Experiments performed shortly afterward provide strong evidence that there also exists a third species of neutrino, the tau neutrino. In 1995, Perl and Reines win the Nobel Prize for their discoveries." FERMINEWS regrets the error.


    The Wilson Fellowship program at Fermilab supports particle physicists in the early stage of their careers by providing unique opportunities for self-directed research-focused positions in the field of experimental particle physics. The fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis to Ph.D. physicists of exceptional talent as evidenced by their contributions to the field in their postdoctoral work. Fellows will work at Fermilab in an area of experimental particle physics of their choice. Wilson Fellowships are tenure track positions with an initial term appointment of three years. Candidates should submit a research statement describing their proposed program and a curriculum vitae; and should arrange to have four letters of reference sent to the address given below. Applications and letters of reference should be received by November 30, 2000.

    Applications, letters and requests for information should be sent to:

    Patricia L. McBride, Chairman, Wilson Fellows Committee Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, MS234 P.O. Box 500 Batavia, IL 60510-0500 e-mail: mcbride@fnal.gov
