The Panofsky Fellowship honors SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory’s founder and first Director, Wolfgang K. H. Panofsky. It is intended to recognize exceptional and promising young scientists who would most benefit from the unique opportunity to conduct their research at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.
The Fellowship is awarded without regard to a candidate's particular specialty within our programs. While an emphasis will be placed on the potential for innovation and growth of new opportunities as their career develops, the candidate's research plan should encompass one or more areas within the science program at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and describe how the proposed research will benefit from the unique opportunity to conduct research at SLAC, while also demonstrating alignment with the SLAC mission and values (https://sites.slac.stanford.edu/cro/panofsky-fellowship). Applications are encouraged to take the extra effort in preparing the research plan to incorporate a good understanding of capabilities and facilities at SLAC. This is best accomplished by contacting the indicated program leads on the web site to find out more details about the individual SLAC research activities and the context for developing a proposed research plan as a Panofsky Fellow.
Candidates should be early in their career but have demonstrated significant experience at the postdoctoral level with clear potential for exceptional scholarship, breadth, innovation, and leadership. The appointment carries a five-year term at SLAC, with salary and benefits commensurate with the experience of the candidate and generous research support including funding for a postdoctoral researcher. The deadline for the 2021 applications is November 2, 2020.
Applicants should provide a cover letter, CV, and a vision statement for their proposed research at SLAC, and arrange for three supporting reference letters. Please submit application materials through AcademicJobsOnline https://academicprogramsonline.org/ajo/fellowship/16606
