Berkeley Lab’s Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) is currently looking for a Staff Scientist.


The Staff Scientist will focus on applied networking research and security, and will play a leadership role in Berkeley Lab’s development, implementation and application of new techniques and architectural approaches to network protocols, network performance and distributed security.  In addition, the Scientist will be more broadly responsible for leading efforts to build a network research practice within the Scientific Networking Division.


The Staff Scientist will:


  • Lead multidisciplinary research group and collaborate with ESnet in the development, implementation and application of new networking and security research aligned with the mission and of interest to the DOE.

  • Develop a strong research portfolio and publications record that addresses future networking architectures and actively collaborate with ongoing and future distributed modeling and simulation development efforts.   

  • Research areas would include a wide range of topics associated with high-speed networking, including network and application performance, security, software defined networking, distributed data, machine learning/AI and associated topics.     

  • Develop role of Networking for future Big Data and Exascale applications.       

  • Lead design and building of proof-of-concept tools to prototype research concepts and aid in transition of those methods for production use.  

  • Support cutting-edge demonstrations of advanced networking concepts to other network researchers, scientists, and DOE program managers.                        

  • Track next generation network technologies and provide expert advice on capabilities including when a technology is ready for use in ESnet.
