Postdoctoral Fellow
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley, California
Date Posted 04/30/2021
Admin-Other Administrative Positions
Employment Type
Application Deadline Open until filled

Lawrence Berkeley National Lab’s (LBNL ) Accelerator Tech-Applied Physics (ATAP ) Division has multiple openings for Postdoctoral Fellow to join the team. 

In this exciting role, you will join the Fusion Science and Ion Beam Technology Program in the ATAP Division working on our Quantum-Information-Science projects with themes of color center qubit synthesis, characterization, and integration for quantum sensing and quantum networking applications.  

You will work with scientists and engineers in our Program at Berkeley Lab to design, implement and use novel instrumentals and modified instruments for color center formation with particle beams and lasers, their characterization and then integration for QIS applications. You will have close collaborations with colleagues at UC Berkeley and at the BELLA Center where the BELLA PW laser and 100 TW class lasers are hosted and where we conduct color center formation experiments with laser driven ion pulses.  You will also interact with scientists in a LBNL-theory group to advance our understanding of color center formation kinetics and coherence properties in the materials under investigation (e. g. diamond, silicon and other semiconductors).


What You Will Do:

  • Collaborate on experiments, working closely with LBNL scientists, engineers, other Postdocs and students.
  • Communicate results through internal reports, internal and external presentations.
  • Document and communicate results of work in peer-reviewed journal publications and oral presentations.
  • Proactively promote and participate in matters relating to safety and environmentally sensitive work practices.
  • Adhere to Environment, Health and Safety (EH&S) policies and attend training classes.


Additional Responsibilities as needed:

  • Along with senior project team members, may mentor undergraduate and graduate students and visitors.


What is Required:

  • Recent Ph.D. degree in physics or related field.
  • Experience with one or more of the following areas.
    • Experience conducting experiments with ion beams and lasers.
    • Experience with color center characterization, e. g. magneto-optical characterization, spin-read out and confocal microscopy.
    • Experience with quantum sensing or quantum networking applications of color centers.
  • Ability to work independently.
  • Relevant publication record and demonstration of proficient written and oral presentation of scientific results.
  • Ability to work effectively in a team that includes engineers, scientific staff, technicians, and students.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.


Desired Qualifications:

  • Ability to mentor undergraduate and graduate students and visitors.



  • This is a full-time, 2 year, postdoctoral appointment with a review after year 1 and the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs. You must have less than 3 years of paid postdoctoral experience at the start of the appointment. Salary for Postdoctoral positions depends on years of experience post-degree.
  • This position is represented by a union for collective bargaining purposes.
  • Salary will be predetermined based on postdoctoral step rates.
  • This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.
  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values at Berkeley Lab. Our excellence can only be fully realized by faculty, students, and staff who share our commitment to these values. Successful candidates for our faculty positions will demonstrate evidence of a commitment to advancing equity and inclusion.
  • Work will be primarily performed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.
