Research Opportunities

Open CFP Postdoctoral appointments

CFP postdocs make the CFP an exciting, productive and visible center of excellence. There are currently multiple openings for CFP Postdoctoral Fellows. These Fellows will play key roles in new measurements that test the standard model of particle physics and probe for physics beyond the standard model (e.g. searches for dark matter and quantum gravity). Specific projects and associated opportunities are listed below:

For potential graduate students

Graduate students are the backbone and strength of the CFP, and fundamental physics provides wonderful laboratory training that can be widely applied. Prospective graduate students interested in joining one or more of the CFP research groups should apply for admission to the Northwestern Department of Physics and Astronomy before Dec. 31. Applications should indicate the CFP groups of interest, and applicants should email their interest to the research group leaders.

For Northwestern undergraduates

The CFP welcomes undergraduate students who are interested in working in the CFP laboratories. Please contact any of the CFP faculty members, along with the CFP Program Assistant).
