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 relate one or more areas within the general scope of the science program at SLAC ( Applicants are encouraged to review research areas at the lab before submitting an application (

Candidates should be early in their career but have demonstrated 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 2020 applications is November 15, 2019.

Applicants should provide a CV and a vision statement for their proposed research at SLAC, and arrange for three supporting reference letters. Please submit application materials through AcademicJobsOnline:
