Job Details


We Are:


Fermilab is America’s premier laboratory for particle physics and accelerator research, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.  We support discovery science experiments in Illinois and at locations around the world, including deep underground mines in South Dakota and Canada, mountaintops in Arizona and Chile, and the South Pole.


We are strategic risk takers, innovators and collaborators. We are engineers, scientists, technicians, administrative professionals. We are 1,800 employees advancing knowledge for the benefit of humankind. Fermilab has been at the forefront of particle physics for more than 40 years. We build world-leading accelerators and detectors to conduct some of the most advanced particle physics experiments possible. We collect and analyze the data from those experiments with some of the most powerful computers in the world. We conduct this research on a 6,800-acre prairie, 35 miles outside Chicago, a treasure that has been designated a National Environmental Research Park.


The John Bardeen Engineering Leadership Program is designed to provide full-time entry-level opportunities for outstanding engineering graduates who are interested in working in an environment of technology and projects that support cutting edge research. Fermilab provides opportunities in the fields of civil, computer, cryogenic, electrical, electronics, mechanical, material science, power distribution, radio frequency systems and super-conducting magnets engineering.
