Los Alamos National Laboratory High Speed Imaging and Data Science Postdoc in Los Alamos, New Mexico
What You Will Do
Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is seeking one or more Postdoctoral Research Associates to conduct research and development in the high-speed imaging and scattering frontiers. Here high-speed is commensurate with the latest and near-future capabilities at synchrotrons, X-ray free electron lasers, hadron colliders, or pulsed power facilities; i.e., on the order of or above 10 million frames per second for multi-frame video recording. In addition to hardware development and applications, data-driven methods present new opportunities for high-speed science and technology with interdisciplinary impact and substantial growth potential. LANL is a world-leading multi-disciplinary institute that houses the state-of-the-art computational facilities, experimental facilities, and collaborates with other national and international organizations such as Argonne APS synchrotron, SLAC LCLS X-ray free electron laser, and light sources in DESY Germany.
The project will adhere to a milestone-driven schedule. It is expected that a successful candidate will be a key member of a multi-disciplinary team to develop and use high-speed hardware and to implement data methods for high-speeding experiments using X-rays and other messenger particles. You will have the opportunity to conduct research leading to high-impact research papers, to present at national and international conferences, and to pave way towards a fruitful and rich career.
What You Need
Minimum Job Requirements:
Demonstrated ability to carry out independent and/or collaborative research in experiments using high-speed imaging hardware, data analysis methods, or a closely related discipline, as evidenced by papers submitted to or published in a peer-reviewed journal or equivalent.
Sound academic training in fundamental physics, material science, chemistry, biology, or other related discipline.
Fluent use of at least one of the major computer languages such as C/C++ or Python.
Demonstrated ability to communicate technically and interpersonally both orally and in writing.
Experience with related experiments and instrumentations, in particular, imaging instrumentation.
Experience with high-performance computing platforms. GPU/TPU accelerated algorithm development such as deep learning.
Experience with commercial and open source data analysis using software tools such as Matlab or others.
Education: A Ph.D. in experimental or computational science or very closely related discipline, earned within the last five years.
Notes to Applicants:
In addition to applying online, it is recommended that interested candidates also send their inquiries, CV including alistof peer-reviewed publications and invited talks, and the names and contact information of at least three references to Dr. Zhehui Wang ( email@example.com )
To receive full consideration, please ensure that your application package provides all of the information requested above.
Evaluation of applications will commence immediately and continue until the position is filled.
Position does not require a security clearance. Selected candidates will be subject to drug testing and other pre-employment background checks.
New-Employment Drug Test: The Laboratory requires successful applicants to complete a new-employment drug test and maintains a substance abuse policy that includes random drug testing.
Candidates may be considered for a Director's Postdoc Fellowship and outstanding candidates may be considered for the prestigious Richard P. Feynman, Darleane Christian Hoffman, J. Robert Oppenheimer, or Frederick Reines Distinguished Postdoc Fellowships.
