The postdoctoral project will focus on fundamental science questions in theoretical nuclear physics. More specifically, we will use ab initio nuclear-structure theory and a modern understanding of the nuclear interaction grounded in effective field theory to model subatomic processes with quantified theoretical uncertainties. The project will involve the development of state-of-the-art research methods that involve quantum many-body theory, effective field theory, computational physics, and advanced statistical methods.

Postdoctoral Fellow Position at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Lawrence Berkeley National Lab's (LBNL) Nuclear Science Division has an opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow to join the team. In this exciting role, you will take a central role in the development and implementation of a general machine learning framework to be applied to two of the Division's premier experimental apparatuses: the superconducting ECR ion source VENUS and the world-leading gamma-ray spectrometer, GRETA.
What You Will Do:
• Through collaboration with scientists, technicians, and engineers, become familiar with the safe operation of both GRETA and VENUS.
• Participate in the establishment of the means to control and obtain data from VENUS and GRETA in preparation for the application of machine learning to these systems.
• Participate in the development of a machine learning framework that will allow for the computer-driven control and analysis of GRETA and VENUS.
• This framework will be made generalizable enough to be applied to other Department of Energy accelerator-related systems.
• Develop, test, benchmark, and tune communication and machine learning frameworks so they may be used reliably.
• Perform experiments with the established machine learning framework on systems associated with both GRETA and VENUS.
• Prepare and publish manuscripts based on this research.
• Report results to supervisor.
• Exercise independent judgment and contribute in an original manner at the professional level.
• Publish papers/reports in refereed journals, and make oral presentations of your own work.
What is Required:
• Ph.D. in Physics, Machine Learning, Computer Science or related discipline within the last three years.
• Experience with data analysis and computer programming in Python and/or C, and a familiarity with machine learning techniques.
• A demonstrated ability to perform research individually and as part of a research group.
• Ability to work productively within LBNL's diverse research environment.
• Demonstrated ability to prepare and publish original research.
• Effectively present research results in seminars and at scientific meetings.
• Experience handling large data sets.
• 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. You must have less than 3 years of paid postdoctoral experience. Salary for Postdoctoral positions depends on years of experience post-degree.
• This position is represented by a union for collective bargaining purposes.
• Salary will be predetermined based on postdoctoral step rates.
• This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.
• Work will be primarily performed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.
