Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

The Physics Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) announces the competition for the 2023 Owen Chamberlain Fellowships in Experimental Particle Physics and Cosmology. The Fellowship is named after Berkeley Nobel Laureate Owen Chamberlain, who, together with Emilio Segrè, Clyde Wiegand, and Thomas Ypsilantis, discovered the anti-proton at the Berkeley Bevatron in 1955.  


The Physics Division pursues a broad suite of experimental research.  It has a long tradition of advanced detector development, computational research (including a strong focus on machine learning) and a new initiative in quantum information science (both quantum computing and quantum sensing) and microelectronics.  Our experimental portfolio encompasses high-energy collider physics (ATLAS), neutrino physics (DUNE), direct detection of dark matter (LZ, TESSERACT), rare and precision physics (Mu2e), experimental cosmology (DESI, Rubin Observatory DESC, Type Ia Supernovae), CMB (Simons Array, Simons Observatory, CMB-S4).   An overview of the research activities in the Physics Division can be found here.  Chamberlain Fellows may join any of the active research programs, subject to funding availability. 

 

Chamberlain Fellows are appointed for 3 years, with the possibility of a 2-year renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds, and ongoing operational needs. Appointments may start during the 2023 calendar year. Appointees will receive an annual research supplement of $10,000 in addition to the support from the research group. Applicants will also automatically be considered for other experimental postdoctoral positions available in the LBNL Physics Division.
