Fermilab is America’s premier laboratory for particle physics and accelerator research, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. We support discovery science experiments in Illinois and at locations around the world, including deep underground mines in South Dakota and Canada, mountaintops in Arizona and Chile, and the South Pole.
We are strategic risk takers, innovators, and collaborators. We are engineers, scientists, technicians, administrative professionals. We are 1,800 employees advancing knowledge for the benefit of humankind. Fermilab has been at the forefront of particle physics for more than 40 years. We build world-leading accelerators and detectors to conduct some of the most advanced particle physics experiments possible. We collect and analyze the data from those experiments with some of the most powerful computers in the world. We conduct this research on a 6,800-acre prairie, 35 miles outside Chicago, a treasure that has been designated a National Environmental Research Park.
The Proton Improvement Plan-II (PIP-II) Project seeks a Logistics Manager to coordinate the Project’s domestic and international supply chain and logistics efforts. PIP-II is a large multi-faceted and multi-national project that will construct a new superconducting linear accelerator on the Fermilab site to provide powerful, high intensity proton beams to the laboratory’s experiments. Fermilab has overall management responsibility for this highly international project. The PIP-II Logistics Manager will assure that supply and storage of materials are adequately and actively being managed to maximize the likelihood of timely delivery of PIP-II materials.
