Apply now for the Luis W. Alvarez Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computing Sciences, sponsored by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s Computing Sciences Area.  Researchers in computer science, applied mathematics or any computational science discipline who have received their Ph.D. within the last three years are encouraged to apply. The successful applicant will work primarily with a research group within the Computing Sciences Area, and receive a competitive salary, professional travel allowance, relocation assistance, excellent benefits, and an opportunity to work in the dynamic San Francisco Bay Area.

 

Since its founding in 2002, Berkeley Lab’s Luis W. Alvarez Postdoctoral Fellowship has cultivated exceptional early career scientists who have gone on to make outstanding contributions to computational and computing sciences.

 

About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab:

 

Whether running extreme-scale simulations on a supercomputer or applying machine-learning or data analysis to massive datasets, scientists today rely on advances in and integration across computer science, mathematics, and computational science, as well as large-scale computing and networking facilities, to increase our understanding of ourselves, our planet, and our universe. Berkeley Lab's Computing Sciences Area researches, develops, and deploys new tools and technologies to meet these needs and to advance research in our core capabilities of computer science, mathematics, and computational science. In addition to fundamental advances in our core capabilities, we impact such areas as materials science, chemistry, biology, astrophysics, climate change, combustion, and fusion energy. Research areas in Computing Sciences include:

 

●      Developing scientific applications and software technologies for extreme-scale computing

●      Developing mathematical modeling for complex scientific problems

●      Designing algorithms to improve the performance of scientific applications

●      Researching digital and post-digital computer architectures for science

●      Advancing extreme-scale scientific data management, analysis, and machine-learning

●      Evaluating or developing new and promising networking technologies

●      Researching methods to control and manage dynamic circuit networks

●      Developing large scale visualization and analytics technologies

●      Managing scientific data in distributed environments

 

Qualifications:


●      Requires a Phd. in computer science, mathematics or related discipline.

●      Candidates must have less than three years of paid postdoctoral experience.

 

Application Process:

 

For consideration, applications are due November 2, 2018
