Scientists at Fermilab conduct basic research in high-energy physics, the science of matter, space, and time. The Lab is home to the world’s highest-energy particle accelerator, which about 2,500 scientists use to study the structure of matter and the forces that govern our universe. Experiments at Fermilab can involve hundreds of scientists from all over the world who work for years designing and constructing large detectors and then taking and analyzing data. Undergraduates have an opportunity to work on projects that support these particle physics experiments in areas such as engineering, applied physics and computing. In addition, the Fermilab site offers opportunities for environmental studies particularly in the hundreds of acres of restored tall grass prairie.
Located in Batavia, Illinois, Fermilab is 30 miles west of Chicago’s loop. While at Fermilab you can enjoy a range of outdoor activities (sorry no mountains or oceans) or take advantage of the cultural resources of a large metropolitan area. Go Cubs!
