The Physics Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) invites applications for a Divisional Fellow position from scientists with a record of substantial accomplishment and creative ability. A Divisional Fellow is a five-year appointment with the expectation of promotion to a career position as Senior Staff Scientist and is comparable to a tenure track junior faculty position at a university. Applicants should have several years of experience in experimental physics beyond the PhD or overall equivalent experience, and have demonstrated leadership and original achievements in research. We welcome all applicants with exceptional promise to advance the art of experimentation in particle physics, and particularly encourage applications in the areas of neutrino physics, direct detection of dark matter, and cosmology.
The Divisional Fellow is expected to play a leadership role in her/his scientific field and will be encouraged to originate research in detection and/or related experimental techniques that may enable transformational advances or new opportunities in scientific research. LBNL has a long tradition of pioneering work developing new detectors, devices, and methods for fundamental physics. Beginning with the invention of the cyclotron itself, this history includes the development of the bubble chamber, the time projection chamber, red-sensitive CCDs, a variety of precision semiconductor tracking systems, and innovative microelectronics and systems.
Within the LBNL Physics Division, there is a broad range of research related to collider, flavor, and neutrino physics, rare decays, cosmology, and direct searches for dark matter. We support a diverse program for state of the art instrumentation development, with significant technical capabilities available through partnerships with the LBNL Engineering, Nuclear, Materials, Computing Sciences Divisions, and the Accelerator and Fusion Research Division. We also form collaborations with the Electronic Engineering, Nuclear Engineering, and Physics departments at the adjacent campus of the University of California at Berkeley.
