Lawrence Berkeley National Lab’s (LBNL) Nuclear Science Division has an opening for an Applied Physicist Research Scientist to join the team.

In this exciting role, you will be responsible for the development of new concepts and technologies related to radiation detection and radiation imaging with a focus on data analytics which can be applied in areas such as basic physics experiments, radiological safety as well as nuclear security and non-proliferation, and medical imaging.  This work will be embedded in ongoing efforts in the Applied Nuclear Physics Program within the Nuclear Science Division.

 

What You Will Do:

  • Lead day-to-day research activities associated with ongoing projects related to the development of systems and algorithms for radiation detection and imaging.
  • Develop and implement novel data analysis methods and algorithms for radiation detection and/or gamma-ray imaging.
  • Develop and implement methods for the analysis of contextual data from video and Lidar data, and the fusion of this data with radiological data.
  • Develop multi-sensor radiation detection and imaging systems that combine radiation detectors with video, Lidar, and other contextual sensors.
  • Plan and execute experimental measurements.
  • Perform analysis of data from multi-sensor radiation detection systems.
  • Interact with a diverse range of people including professional colleagues outside LBNL.
  • Contribute to the development of new principles and concepts.
  • Contribute to the development of successful research proposals.
  • Summarize research results in peer-reviewed publications, conference presentations, and reports to federal sponsors.
  • Present scientific findings at seminars and conferences.
  • Mentor student and postdoctoral researchers in their research at LBNL and UC Berkeley.

 

What is Required:

  • Ph.D. in physics, nuclear engineering, or related field.
  • Normally less than five years of relevant experience beyond Ph.D.
  • Experience in radiation detection, statistical analysis, machine learning, or data fusion.
  • Demonstrated experience of conducting independent scientific enquiry and summarizing scientific data for publication.
  • Strong, relevant publication record.
  • Proficiency in C, C++, and/or Python.
  • Demonstrated ability to independently carry out creative research within an established framework.
  • Demonstrated excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Demonstrated ability to work well within a multidisciplinary team and to engage with internal and external collaborators.

 

Desired Qualifications:

  • Six or more years relevant experience beyond Ph.D.
  • Experience in the areas of radiation detection, radiation imaging, and/or nuclear instrumentation.
  • Experience in data fusion, statistical analysis, and machine learning.
  • Experience of leading research projects.
  • Experience of leading or contributing to successful funding proposals.
  • Knowledge of modern radiation detection techniques and basic nuclear physics concepts.
  • Knowledge of methods and technologies for active interrogation.
  • Experience of working with the Robot Operating System (ROS).
  • Experience of working with Unix operating systems.
  • Experience of working with Docker.
  • Ability to direct the work of technical staff and students.

 

For full consideration, please apply by February 25, 2022.
