Berkeley Lab’s Accelerator Technology and Applied Physics (ATAP) Division has an opening for a Beam Dynamics Modeling Postdoctoral Scholar to develop and apply advanced computational methods and tools for beam dynamics simulations. We are looking for a talented and motivated postdoctoral fellow to join our team working on exciting research projects in the  Accelerator Modeling Program (AMP) in the ATAP Division.


In this role, you will be on modeling nonlinear beam dynamics and collective effects, such as space-charge effects, coherent synchrotron radiation and beam-beam effects, in accelerator systems, using massively parallel computing. In addition, you will collaborate with, and be a part of, a team developing new capabilities to design, explore, and optimize future ion and electron accelerators.


This is a team that has developed or helped develop, some of the most advanced accelerator modeling capabilities in the world, including the codes IMPACT, MaryLie/IMPACT, BeamBeam3D, and Warp in the Berkeley Lab Accelerator Simulation Toolkit (http://blast.lbl.gov). Since theory goes hand in hand with simulation, the successful applicant is expected to have expertise in both numerical simulation and accelerator theory.

What You Will Do:

  • Modeling of nonlinear beam dynamics and collective effects, including space-charge effects and beam-beam effects in high brightness and high intensity linear and ring-based accelerators.

  • Development of new computational methods and capabilities for multi-physics beam dynamics simulation, able to take advantage of the extraordinary power of petascale computers.

What is Required:

  • Recent Ph.D. in Physics or related fields.

  • Experience and expertise in applying and developing computer codes for accelerator design and analysis.

  • Proficiency with programming languages and numerical methods used in scientific research.

  • Experience with accelerator theory, including both single-particle beam dynamics and collective effects.

  • Ability to work independently and in collaboration with scientists both within and outside LBNL.

  • Excellent analytical, organizational and multi-tasking skills.

  • Good communication skills. Ability to present research results effectively.

  • Availability to travel and present work at collaboration meetings, workshops and conferences.


Additional Desired Qualifications:

  • Experience with Fortran90 and MPI.

The following required application materials listed below must be submitted through Academic Jobs Online:

  • Resume/Curriculum Vitae.

  • Cover Letter.

  • A statement describing future research interests.


The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.

Notes:

  • 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. Salary for Postdoctoral positions depends on years of experience post-degree.

  • Full-time, M-F, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.

  • 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.

  • Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.
