Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's (LBNL) Accelerator Technology and Applied Physics (ATAP) Division has an immediate and exciting opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow.
You will be advancing understanding of physical performance limits of state-of-the-art superconducting accelerator magnets by means of novel diagnostics and analysis, and perform work within the Berkeley Center for Magnet Technology (BCMT) as a key member of a team consisting of physicists, engineers, technologists and students. You will design and implement original magnetic, acoustic and optical probes to characterize mechanical and electromagnetic phenomena in superconducting magnets and conductors, and develop physical models addressing magnet performance. You will also participate in magnet test campaigns at BCMT, and meet deliverables on the ongoing collaboration projects in quench detection and characterization for high temperature superconductors.
Ph.D. degree in Experimental Physics and solid background in superconductivity and/or low-temperature experiments are required. The successful candidate should demonstrate hands-on experience in designing, building and operating advanced cryogenics instrumentation, electronics and data acquisition systems. Good working knowledge of applied math, and excellent working knowledge of programming in Python, Matlab and LabView is required. Background or hands-on experience with physical acoustics methods or ultrasonic techniques is a plus.
This is a full time, 2 year, postdoctoral appointment with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs. More information on the position can and direction on how to apply can be found at:
