Postdoc to work on ALIC


(i) Postdoc to work on ALICE:

The Relativistic Nuclear Collisions Program (RNC) of the Nuclear Science Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is seeking outstanding candidates for a postdoctoral position in experimental Relativistic Heavy Ion Physics, with the ALICE experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. RNC scientists play leading roles in both ALICE and in the STAR experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. RNC is currently developing future upgrade projects for both experiments.

The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to:
• Conduct research focused on the upgrade program of the central barrel detectors of ALICE (Inner Tracking System and Time Projection Chamber).
• Participate in the development of physics strategies for future ALICE measurements.
• Analyze and publish results based on current ALICE data.

• Recent Ph.D. degree in High-Energy Nuclear Physics, or a closely related field
• Ability to work productively within a diverse research environment
• Ability to produce and publish original research and effectively present research results in seminars and at scientific meetings

This is a 2-year postdoctoral appointment with the possibility of renewal contingent upon satisfactory performance, continued funding, and ongoing needs. A background check is required.

May involve travel to CERN in Geneva, Switzerland according to priorities and research needs.

Applications will be considered immediately, and the position will be open until filled.

Berkeley Lab is an Affirmative Action/Equal Employment Opportunity employer committed to the development of a safe and diverse workforce.
