Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Chamberlain Postdoctoral Fellowship - 83961
Organization: PH-Physics

The Physics Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL)announces the competition for the 2018 Owen Chamberlain Fellowships in Experimental Particle Physics and Cosmology.

The Physics Division pursues a broad portfolio of experimental research including high-energy collider physics (ATLAS), neutrino physics (Daya Bay, DUNE, ProtoDUNE), cosmology (DESI, DES, eBOSS, LSST, Type Ia Supernovae), direct detection dark matter searches (LZ), CMB (Simons Array, Simons Observatory), and Quantum Information Science. We also have a long tradition of advanced detector development and advanced computational research. Chamberlain Fellows may join any of the above programs, subject to funding availability.

The Fellowship honors Berkeley Nobel Laureate Owen Chamberlain, who, together with Emilio Segre, Clyde Wiegand, and Thomas Ypsilantis, discovered the anti-proton at the Berkeley Bevatron in 1955.

Applicants for a Chamberlain Fellowship will also automatically be considered for other experimental postdoctoral positions available in the LBNL Physics Division.

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 2018 calendar year. Appointees will receive an annual research supplement of $5,000.
