Postdoctoral Scholar Positions

The BELLA Center at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) has two openings for Physicist Postdoctoral Scholars.

Developing high-quality, high-energy laser plasma accelerators (LPAs) for high energy physics and light source applications. The primary responsibility of this position is to carry out experiments on LPAs that utilize the BELLA center petawatt laser system, such as 1 GeV single-stage optimization including novel injection methods and staging of LPAs. The posting may be viewed here and questions can be directed by email to Anthony Gonsalves, ajgonsalves@lbl.gov.

Developing ultrafast fiber laser technology. The primary responsibility of this position is to explore novel methods in the field, including coherent combination of laser pulses in temporal, spectral, and spatial domains, gain narrowing compensation, state-of-the-art high-power fiber amplification, nonlinear pulse compression, application to LPA, and advanced digital control of laser and accelerator systems including machine learning.
