Welcome to the Center for Frontiers in Nuclear Science

The Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) is essential for our understanding of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and in particular the role of  gluons and sea quarks in the structure of nucleons and nuclei. The mission of this Center is to promote and facilitate the realization of the U.S. based EIC by enhancing the science case and collaborations amongst the scientists around the world interested in the EIC.


CFNS Postdoctoral and Graduate Student Fellowship Program

CFNS offers three kinds of fellowship programs to work on Electron-Ion Collider activities: CFNS Postdoctoral Fellows are located at CFNS Stony Brook full time.  CFNS-University Joint Postdoctoral Fellows spend 30%-50% of their time at CFNS and the rest at their home institutions.
