HEP Early Career Opportunities

Since its inception in 2010, the Office of High Energy Physics (HEP) has participated in DOE's Office of Science Early Career Research Program. Prior to this, HEP had supported researchers early in their careers through the DOE Outstanding Junior Investigator Program.pdf file (86KB) from 1978 through 2009.
