The Schramm postdoctoral fellowship is intended to attract early-career researchers of extraordinary promise — from exceptional recent Ph.D. recipients to those with a proven research record from prior postdoctoral experience. The successful applicant will be expected to conduct original research on his/her choice of
experimental activities within the Fermilab Cosmic Physics Center (CPC).
Current experimental projects in the CPC cover a broad range of topics including the direct detection of dark matter (SuperCDMS, ADMX, SENSEI), investigating dark energy via astrophysical surveys (DES, DESI, LSST) and studying the cosmic microwave background (SPT-3G, CMB-S4). There are also opportunities to participate in the
development of new projects targeting cosmic probes of fundamental
physics and detector R&D. Members of the CPC interact regularly with scientific, engineering and technical departments throughout the
The successful candidate will be a Ph.D. physicist of
exceptional talent with a proven research record.
Term of appointment
The appointment is for up to five years and comes
with a competitive salary and excellent benefits.
