Serving the Jefferson Lab User Community

The Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility, or CEBAF, is a scientific user facility that is open for research to scientists and students worldwide. We welcome researchers in nuclear physics, accelerator science and related fields to join us in our mission to explore the building blocks of matter and discover technologies that enable our research.

CEBAF has drawn more than 1,690 scientist users to Jefferson Lab in fiscal year 2021, including staff scientists, professors, researchers, postdocs and undergraduate and graduate students working on a variety of research projects in computation, data analysis, experiment preparation and related activities in Newport News, VA.

Whether you are a new student or a veteran scientist, we hope these pages provide you the information you need to further your research at Jefferson Lab.

Each year we very much look forward to a true avalanche of young scientists visiting Jefferson Lab and working with our users and staff on a variety of science projects. Last summer we again enjoyed having 208 students (ranging from high school to graduate level) work with us, of which about 85% were with the Physics Division.
In order to prepare for these students, and especially to maintain a safe working environment at Jefferson Lab, we are working annually with mentors and university advisors to gather information about our student body, and in particular to update our knowledge about the status of the students, to learn about any new prospective students coming to the lab, and about the anticipated activities of both new and returning students.
