The Physics Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) announces the competition for the 2014 Owen Chamberlain Fellowships in experimental particle physics and cosmology. The Physics Division pursues a broad portfolio of experimental research spanning the Energy Frontier (ATLAS), the Intensity Frontier (LBNE, Mue2, Daya Bay), and the Cosmic Frontier (Supernova Cosmology Project, the Supernova Factory, DES (Dark Energy Survey), BOSS (Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey), DESI (Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument), Planck, POLARBEAR, LUX and LZ). We also have a long tradition of advanced detector development. The Chamberlain Fellow will be given an opportunity to participate in any of the above-mentioned programs, subject to funding limitations.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. awarded in the fall of 2012 or later, or should expect to receive a Ph.D. by the summer of 2014. To assure full consideration all application materials should be received by October 15, 2013.
Chamberlain Fellows are appointed for three years, with the possibility of a two-year extension, and receive an annual research supplement of $5,000.
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.
