The Physics Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) announces the competition for the 2019 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), Mu2e, neutrino physics (DUNE, ProtoDUNE, Daya Bay), cosmology (DESI, DES, eBOSS, LSST, Type Ia Supernovae), direct detection of dark matter (LZ, low-mass searches), CMB (Simons Array, Simons Observatory, CMB-S4), 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.  For more information on the Physics Division's research programs, visit http://physics.lbl.gov and click here for more information on the Chamberlain Fellowships.


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 2019 calendar year. Appointees will receive an annual research supplement of $5,000.


Position Duties:

  • Work on experiments in High Energy Particle Physics or Cosmology with involvement in the design, construction, execution, and analysis of data from the experiment.

  • Conduct original research independently and in collaboration.

  • Interact with LBNL and other investigators working on similar or related scientific problems.

  • Prepare research papers for publication.

  • Present research findings at seminars and conferences.


Position Requirements:

  • Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Physics, Astronomy or a related field, or should expect to receive their Ph.D. by the time the appointment begins.

  • Candidates should have no more than 2 years in a prior postdoctoral appointment when the appointment begins.

  • Experience in particle physics and/or cosmological research.

  • Evidence of potential for high level of achievement as an independent researcher.

  • Ability to work as a team member to accomplish goals.
