    19th

We have multiple openings for Research Analysts interested in the dynamic response of materials at high rates and pressures. This position includes the opportunities to study high-temperature and high-pressure physics, shock produced ejecta, heterogenous materials, and high-pressure chemistry.

You will work with a team of experienced physicists and engineers to design or analyze experiments using gas guns, x-ray user facilities, and computational/numerical simulations. In this role you will also publish research results in peer-reviewed journals, and present results at external conferences, seminars, and/or technical meetings. This position is in the High Pressure Physics Group, within the Physics Division (PHYS), in the Physical and Life Sciences Directorate at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

In this role you will 

  • Contribute to design and analysis of studies of material properties under extreme pressure and strain rate conditions. Potential research areas include, but are not limited to, the following topics: high-pressure thermal transport, unloading processes, shock produced jetting, heterogeneous materials, high-pressure chemistry and spectroscopy.
  • Contribute to metrology, documentation, and data reduction of experimental assemblies. Assist in data analysis.
  • Use simulations to design and develop experimental targets, analyze results, and assist in planning work.
  • Document findings and solutions. Prepare reports and publish research results in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Present results at external conferences.
  • Work closely with a multidisciplinary team of engineers, scientists, and technicians both at LLNL as well as outside of LLNL, to complete project goals.
  • Perform other duties as assigned.

Additional job responsibilities, at the SES.2 level

  • Develop new analysis methods and software.
  • Design and develop new experimental packages.
  • Improve documentation on analysis methods, including error propagation and statistics.
  • Develop and maintain analysis documentation and track analysis progress.

  • Ability to secure and maintain a U.S. DOE Q-level security clearance which requires U.S. citizenship.
  • Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Chemistry, Data Science, Physics, or related field, or the equivalent combination of education and relevant experience.
  • Experience with comprehensive data analysis and statistical methods.
  • Experience with, and ability to apply, a broad range of computational design, methods, and analysis.
  • Proficient verbal and written communication skills, such as would be needed to participate in writing reports, peer-reviewed publications, and proposals.
  • Initiative, eagerness to learn and apply new techniques, interpersonal skills, and the ability to work in a collaborative, multidisciplinary team environment.
  • Familiarity with data acquisition and/or data analysis software (e.g., excel, Matlab, Python, Mathematica, Comsol, Labview, C/C++, R, etc.).

 

Additional qualifications at the SES.2 level

  • Experience with one or more of the following areas: high-rate experiments, high-pressure science, mechanics of materials, fluid dynamics, finite element modeling, and hydrodynamic simulations.
  • Experience with statistical methods, image processing, and/or machine learning.
  • Previous experience preparing documents and publishing results.

Qualifications We Desire

  • Master's in Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Chemistry, Data Science, Physics, or related field, or the equivalent combination of education and relevant experience.
  • Expertise using (multi)physics simulation codes to model experiments or analyze scientfic data, for example, COMSOL, MATLAB, CTH, Mathematica, Igor Pro, or ALE3D.
  • Experience with C++, C, Java, Python, R, or Matlab, data analysis algorithms, data management approaches, workflow tools, machine learning, or experience developing analysis models.

All your information will be kept confidential according to EEO guidelines.
