Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

Berkeley Lab’s Physics Division has an opening for a Post Baccalaureate Fellow.


The ATLAS group has a leading role in the upgrade to the ATLAS tracking detector which will be constructed over the next few years and installed at CERN in order to exploit the increased luminosity of the Large Hadron Collider which will result after upgrades to the accelerator complex to be completed in 2024. The LBNL ATLAS group has extensive experience in the development and use of silicon tracking detectors.


What You Will Do:

  • Become familiar with research activities regarding the development, construction and testing of electronics for silicon tracking detectors for use at the Large Hadron Collider.

  • Observe and learn from research in the LBNL ATLAS group on development, construction, and testing of the Silicon strip tracking detector modules or on other aspects of R&D related to tracking for the ATLAS detector at CERN LHC.

  • Attend Physics scientific seminars and research seminars at University of California Berkeley, participate remotely to regular meetings with ATLAS collaborators both US and worldwide.

  • Observe and review the preparation of documentation, setting up data acquisition for testing, and assembly of electronics for silicon detectors. Learn to test the prototypes that are built.

  • Become familiar with these concepts and procedures through reading/searching the literature, discussions with scientists, seminars, comparisons with a variety of specifications.

  • Observe how the transition from R&D to production for a large scale physics experiments is performed.

  • Prepare reports, manuscripts and other documentation as needed for publication and/or for presentation at seminars and scientific conferences.


What is Required:

  • Applicants should have a Bachelor's Degree in Physics, Applied Physics or related field awarded between 1 July 2016 and 1 July 2018. Minimum GPA of 3.2 out of 4.0.
