Postdoctoral Fellow at Berkeley Lab

The Nuclear Science Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow position in the Relativistic Nuclear Collisions (RNC) program. 

The RNC group has a strong involvement in both the physics analysis and instrumentation in experiments such as STAR, ALICE, sPHENIX, and the future EIC.  RNC has successfully led the Heavy Flavor Tracker (HFT) development and physics analysis for the STAR experiment.  Currently, RNC is heavily involved in both the ALICE ITS upgrade and sPHENIX MVTX instrumentation.  Work on the future Electron-Ion-Collider has also started.  We develop both the instrumentation and analysistechniques to extend the reach of experimental nuclear physics.

The successful candidate is expected to work primarily on instrumentation development.  The initial work will be the development of MAPS sensors that will enable next-generation detectors in ALICE and EIC.  Tests both on the bench and in the beam for radiation effects are expected.

The opportunity to employ machine learning for sensor design and data analysis is open as well.
