A new fellowship created by Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory will provide engineering students in underrepresented groups in STEM immersive learning experiences on world-leading particle accelerator projects at Fermilab, starting with the new PIP-II accelerator that will power the world’s most intense neutrino beam. Applications for 2022 open September 2021.

From Community College Daily, July 26, 2021: Moraine Valley Community College in Illinois has six students participating in Department of Science internships this summer, four are at Fermilab. These ten to 16-week internships increase students’ confidence levels, offer professional development, technical writing training and networking with scientists.

Fahim AI on-chip data processing work

The U.S. Department of Energy awarded Farah Fahim an Early Career Research Award to investigate how deploying neural networks and machine learning on a particle detector can allow data processing at source. Her work could make data processing at detectors more efficient, improving fundamental research at physics facilities like the LHC at CERN.

The Fermilab particle accelerator complex set a record beam power earlier this year, thanks to the high-quality work of numerous teams and individuals. The successful completion of the NuMI 2020 shutdown work prepared the target facility for this achievement.

The 2021 All Engineers’ Retreat takes place from Feb. 21-27. Registration is open. Zoom links will be sent following registration. Sessions will cover interesting projects at Fermilab and engineers’ contributions. Retreat hosts and attendees will also cover opportunities, address concerns and receive feedback about the lab’s efforts in building an engineering community. Active participation is encouraged, and new proposals and ideas are welcome. There will be a specific session dedicated to engineering talks on finding research and collaborative synergies among…
