Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory - Physics

Position ID:LBNLPhysics-Physics-DF_TPP [#1683]
Position Title: LBNL Divisional Fellow - Theoretical Particle Physics
Position Location:Berkeley, California 94720, United States [map]
Subject Areas: Physics / Particle Physics, Theoretical Particle Physics
Appl Deadline:2012/11/16 finished (posted 2012/08/02, updated 2013/08/25, listed until 2013/09/30)
Position Description:    

The Physics Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) invites applications for a scientist with a record of accomplishment, creative ability, and outstanding promise in the field of theoretical particle physics, defined broadly. The appointment will be as a Divisional Fellow, a five year appointment with the expectation of promotion to a career position as a Senior Staff Scientist. The Divisional Fellow position at LBNL is an approximate equivalent to a tenure track junior faculty position at a university. An appointment directly to Senior Staff Scientist may be considered in exceptional circumstances.

The Berkeley theory group currently consists of three senior physicists and one Divisional Fellow at LBNL, and seven UC Berkeley faculty. The staff operates as a single unit with an active research program that ranges from particle physics to cosmology and string theory. The Divisional Fellow position provides the opportunity to interact with experimentalists at LBNL and on campus, working on a broad program that includes a large ATLAS group. Many other efforts include Daya Bay, LUX/LZ, LBNE, CUORE, MAJORANA, IceCube, Mu2e, SN surveys, DES, BOSS, BigBOSS, Planck, Euclid, POLARBEAR, and CDMS.

Candidates should have several years of experience in theoretical particle physics beyond the Ph.D., and have demonstrated independence and original achievements in research.

For inquiries, please contact Amy Pagsolingan (AVPagsolingan[at]lbl[dot]gov). For full consideration, please submit application materials by November 16, 2012.
