The SLAC Research Library Addis Fellowship program places a recent PhD or MLIS graduate in a paid position the SLAC Library for a period of 3 to 6 months, part-time, to give the incumbent exposure to and experience in a special library environment, and to give them an opportunity to exercise leadership in the development and implementation of policies and practices relating to some aspect of the SLAC Research Library's management and services.

Addis Fellows are hired on an irregular basis, as income from the endowment becomes available for use.
