The ATLAS group has a leading role in the upgrade to the ATLAS tracking detector which will be constructed over the next few years and installed at CERN in order to exploit the increased luminosity of the Large Hadron Collider which will result after upgrades to the accelerator complex to be completed in 2024. The LBNL ATLAS group has extensive experience in the development and use of silicon tracking detectors.
What You Will Do:
Become familiar with research activities regarding the development, construction and testing of electronics for silicon tracking detectors for use at the Large Hadron Collider.
Observe and learn from research in the LBNL ATLAS group on development, construction, and testing of the Silicon strip tracking detector modules or on other aspects of R&D related to tracking for the ATLAS detector at CERN LHC.
Attend Physics scientific seminars and research seminars at University of California Berkeley, participate remotely to regular meetings with ATLAS collaborators both US and worldwide.
Observe and review the preparation of documentation, setting up data acquisition for testing, and assembly of electronics for silicon detectors. Learn to test the prototypes that are built.
Become familiar with these concepts and procedures through reading/searching the literature, discussions with scientists, seminars, comparisons with a variety of specifications.
Observe how the transition from R&D to production for a large scale physics experiments is performed.
Prepare reports, manuscripts and other documentation as needed for publication and/or for presentation at seminars and scientific conferences.
What is Required:
Applicants should have a Bachelor's Degree in Physics, Applied Physics or related field awarded between 1 July 2016 and 1 July 2018. Minimum GPA of 3.2 out of 4.0.
Experience in any of the following areas:
High Energy Physics Analysis.

About Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with excellence. Thirteen scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize. Fifty-seven Lab scientists are members of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States. Thirteen of our scientists have won the National Medal of Science, our nation's highest award for lifetime achievement in fields of scientific research. Eighteen of our engineers have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and three of our scientists have been elected into the Institute of Medicine. In addition, Berkeley Lab has trained thousands of university science and engineering students who are advancing technological innovations across the nation and around the world. Berkeley Lab is a member of the national laboratory system supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Office of Science. It is managed by the University of California (UC) and is charged with conducting unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Located on a 200-acre site in the hills above the UC Berkeley campus that offers spectacular... views of the San Francisco Bay, Berkeley Lab employs approximately 4,200 scientists, engineers, support staff and students. Its budget for 2011 is $735 million, with an additional $101 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, for a total of $836 million. A recent study estimates the Laboratory's overall economic impact through direct, indirect and induced spending on the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area to be nearly $700 million annually. The Lab was also responsible for creating 5,600 jobs locally and 12,000 nationally. The overall economic impact on the national economy is estimated at $1.6 billion a year. Technologies developed at Berkeley Lab have generated billions of dollars in revenues, and thousands of jobs. Savings as a result of Berkeley Lab developments in lighting and windows, and other energy-efficient technologies, have also been in the billions of dollars. Berkeley Lab was founded in 1931 by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a UC Berkeley physicist who won the 1939 Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the cyclotron, a circular particle accelerator that opened the door to high-energy physics. It was Lawrence's belief that scientific research is best done through teams of individuals with different fields of expertise, working together. His teamwork concept is a Berkeley Lab legacy that continues today.
