CFNS Postdoctoral Fellowship Program
CFNS has two fellowship programs to work on the 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, Stony Brook,  and the rest  at their home institutions.   For more information, please contact

CFNS-University Joint Postdoctoral Fellow Appointments:
Location: 75% Partner University and 25% CFNS, Stony Brook
Focus: Electron-Ion Collider science, detector technologies and related activities.

CFNS pays half of the base salary of the post doctoral fellow at a remote institution (University or Research Laboratory) to help seed research projects on EIC. The postdoctoral fellow,  spends a majority of the time at the remote institution, and a fraction of the time at CFNS, Stony Brook.  CFNS provides travel support for the postdoctoral fellow for this program.

Tenure-track faculty at Universities and staff members at national laboratories who are interested in partnering with CFNS, Stony Brook, to create a joint research project through a shared postdoctoral fellowship at your institution are invited to submit proposals.  The 2024 proposal submission form will be available in February, 2024. Contact if you have any questions.

Edward Bouchet Postdoctoral Fellowship:
Location: CFNS, Stony Brook
Focus: EIC science and mentoring
We are glad to announce the first Edward Bouchet (EB) Post Doctoral Fellowship at Stony Brook University. CFNS was setup jointly by Stony Brook University and Brookhaven National Lab in 2017 to promote the Electron Ion Collider (EIC) and its science and has focused on supporting and attracting early career scientists to work on the EIC. 

Exceptional scientists interested in working on experimental aspects of the EIC with deep interest in promoting underrepresented minorities (URMs) in nuclear and particle physics are encouraged to apply. 

The EB Fellow will work closely with Prof. Abhay Deshpande on the science of EIC, and on reaching out and mentoring URMs. In addition, the Fellow could work on one of the ongoing experimental projects at CFNS (for example activities at Brookhaven National Laboratory, Jefferson Lab, Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), TRIUMF and the South Pole). This position is aimed at candidates who are interested and committed to advising and mentoring underrepresented minority (undergraduate, Masters and Ph.D.) students and junior postdocs. The EB Fellow will work closely with similar programs around the country and particularly with students from the newly created Simons STEM Scholars program at Stony Brook university and the Nuclear Physics Training (NPT) Program at BNL.
