- Job Title: Advanced Light Source Postdoctoral Fellowship
Req Number: 25378
Division: Advanced Light Source
Department: Scientific Support
The Advanced Light Source (ALS) Division’s ALS Postdoctoral Fellowship Program provides challenging opportunities to conduct research in areas supportive of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and ALS missions. Fellows become integral members of ALS research teams and are exposed to current scientific challenges that can be tackled with the use of advanced synchrotron radiation tools. They share and exchange innovative scientific ideas and techniques, and enhance their professional development.
Fellows also have access to a valuable combination of outstanding professional staff, scientific equipment and facilities available at the ALS as well as potential access to other Berkeley Lab user facilities including the Molecular Foundry, the National Center of Electron Microscopy (NCEM) and the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) computing facility.
A monthly salary will be paid at a rate competitive with current ALS/Berkeley Lab postdoctoral fellows. Additional funding support will be available for research-related materials, supplies and services, professional development, and research-related travel. Postdoctoral fellows are also eligible for mid-level career benefits.
The fellow will carry out research at the ALS in the research areas that include Physical Sciences, Energy Sciences, Biosciences, Environmental Sciences and General Sciences.
The ALS is recognized as one of the world leading facilities in the following specialized areas of science:
• Coherent Imaging and Scattering
• Ultrafast and Ultrasmall Science
• Magnetism and Magnetization Dynamics
• In-situ studies of systems with Photon-In/Photon-Out and Photon-In/Electron-Out Techniques
• Learn more about the ALS Postdoctoral Fellowship.
• We have hired several excellent postdocs under the ALS Postdoctoral Fellowship program. We continue to review and consider all submitted resumes/CVs and will contact applicants if additional information is necessary.
Applicants must be legally eligible to work in the United States, regardless of citizenship. Additionally, the doctoral research degree must be from an accredited academic institution in an appropriate scientific or engineering discipline within three years of the appointment start date. Awards are initially for one year with the possibility of renewal for a second and/or third year, contingent on satisfactory annual performance reviews and funding availability. Renewals will be evaluated at the end of each year.
About Berkeley Lab
The Advanced Light Source (ALS), a division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, is a national user facility that generates intense x-ray radiation for scientific and technological research. As the world’s first third-generation synchrotron radiation source, the ALS offers outstanding performance in the VUV-soft x-ray energy range and excellent performance from the infrared to the hard x-ray regions. The facility welcomes researchers from universities, industries, and government laboratories around the world. It is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Basic Energy Sciences.
Berkeley Lab is a U.S. Department of Energy national laboratory located in Berkeley, California. It conducts multidisciplinary research with key efforts in fundamental studies of the universe, physics, bioscience, nanoscience, clean energy, energy efficiency, the environment, and the use of computing as a tool for discovery. 11 Nobel laureates are associated with Berkeley Lab, which is managed by the University of California.
