Berkeley Lab's Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) is currently looking for a Staff Scientist.
The Staff Scientist will focus on applied networking research and security, and will play a leadership role in Berkeley Lab's development, implementation and application of new techniques and architectural approaches to network protocols, network performance and distributed security. In addition, the Scientist will be more broadly responsible for leading efforts to build a network research practice within the Scientific Networking Division.
The Staff Scientist will:
Lead multidisciplinary research group and collaborate with ESnet in the development, implementation and application of new networking and security research aligned with the mission and of interest to the DOE.
Develop a strong research portfolio and publications record that addresses future networking architectures and actively collaborate with ongoing and future distributed modeling and simulation development efforts.
Research areas would include a wide range of topics associated with high-speed networking, including network and application performance, security, software defined networking, distributed data, machine learning/AI and associated topics.
Develop role of Networking for future Big Data and Exascale applications.
Lead design and building of proof-of-concept tools to prototype research concepts and aid in transition of those methods for production use.
Support cutting-edge demonstrations of advanced networking concepts to other network researchers, scientists, and DOE program managers.
Track next generation network technologies and provide expert advice on capabilities including when a technology is ready for use in ESnet.
Lead new proposals for project-based funding and collaborate on conference papers and funding proposals.
Mentor postdocs and students, as well as organize and manage ESnet's summer student internship program
Document research results in journal papers, conference proceedings, and reports to sponsors.
Represent ESnet's research to the wider applied networking and security community at conferences, meetings and workshops.
Ph.D. in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or a related discipline and a minimum of 5 years' experience as a researcher.
Recognized technical expertise in network and/or security research and a strong publication record with demonstrated experience leading research and development initiatives.
Demonstrated experience with network protocols, network performance and network security.
Ability to write computer code for complex simulations or for large-scale testing.
Understanding of networks and how to configure network equipment for building physical testbeds.
Understanding and experience with security landscape, best practices and research.
Demonstrated ability to work both independently, work collaboratively in an interdisciplinary team, and contribute to an active intellectual environment.
Excellent organizational, communication, technical writing and presentation skills. Ability to work on multiple tasks and accept fluid situations.
Additional desired qualifications:
Knowledge of data analysis, machine learning tools as applied to networking
Knowledge or experience building network or security testbeds
Knowledge and/or experience other next-generation internet architectures such as Named Data Networking (NDN).

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.
