Position Description:    

 Lawrence Berkeley National Lab’s (LBNL) Physics Division has an opening for a Project Scientist to join the team.

The LBNL Physics Division will build and test several thousand silicon strip detector assemblies (“strip modules”) and other associated electrical  and mechanical components as part of the detector array for the upgrade of the Inner Tracker (ITk) of the ATLAS Experiment at the High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Geneva Switzerland. ATLAS is a large general purpose magnetic spectrometer used for particle physics experiments.

The strip modules consist of a sensor, and several printed circuits (“hybrids” and “power boards”) which must be precision mounted, interconnected, and tested.  The project is entering a large-scale production phase which will last for several years. LBNL is responsible for a significant portion of this work along with collaborating institutions.

In this role, you will perform the QC that  these components will require and provide scientific and technical coordination to postdocs and students, to support these activities.

This position is full time, in person, and based at the main LBNL site in Berkeley, California but includes occasional travel to meetings at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland.  Weekly attendance at a variety of remote international technical meetings, including presentations, is also required.
