Job ref: 88514

Organization: PH-Physics

The Physics Division (https://www.physics.lbl.gov/) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) invites applications for a Staff Scientist position in Experimental Particle Physics. The Physics Division conducts world-leading research in experimental and theoretical particle physics and cosmology. We are seeking a candidate whose expertise would strengthen the existing neutrino program of the Division, in particular the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE).

The LBNL Neutrino Group is involved in a number of projects on DUNE ranging from the Near Detector design, pixel-based TPC readout electronics, readout electronics for the wire-based Far Detectors, oscillation analyses, ProtoDUNE, and High Performance Computing using NERSC (https://www.nersc.gov/) resources. The successful candidate is expected to take a leading role in several of these areas. Expertise in some of these areas can be developed while in the position. Applicants should have two or more years of experience beyond PhD related to experimental particle physics, or overall equivalent experience, and have demonstrated original achievements in research.

The appointment may be either career-track or career, depending on experience. The career-track Staff Scientist position is a five-year appointment with the expectation of promotion to a career position as a Staff Scientist.

Berkeley Lab values a diverse workforce and culture of inclusion, which are keys to attracting and engaging the brightest minds to further our record of scientific excellence and groundbreaking innovations (https://diversity.lbl.gov). Applications from women, minorities and other under represented groups are strongly encouraged.
