Lawrence Berkeley National Lab's (LBNL) Climate & Ecosystems Division and Nuclear Science Division has an opening for a mmWave Sensing Postdoc to join the team.
In this exciting role, you will develop and implement novel sensing and networking technologies for advanced situational awareness and observations of atmospheric and geophysical properties in urban environments, as well as in natural ecosystems. The postdoc will work with a multi-disciplinary group of scientists to explore mmWave signals (e.g., in 5G networks) for field observations.
What You Will Do:
Study environmental effects (human activities, precipitation, vegetation, etc) on mmWave propagation
Develop and evaluate instrumentation for mmWave sensing (data acquisition, processing, and
Develop signal processing routines and edge computing algorithms for in-situ data processing
Conduct laboratory and field tests of the developed technology
Ability to work as a member of a large multidisciplinary research team.
(Co-) author peer-reviewed journal articles and technical reports
Additional Responsibilities as needed:
Mentor students and work with visiting faculty in their research at LBNL
What is Required:
Recent Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Physics, or a related discipline.
Experience with RF signal processing and embedded systems
Knowledge in communication technologies (e.g., 5G) and RF propagation
Proficiency in written and oral dissemination of scientific results
Ability to work independently and in collaboration in a research environment
Experience in AI/ML algorithms
Experience in mmWave technology
Requested Application Material: 1. Curriculum Vitae and publication list 2. Statement of research experience and interests. (3-page maximum, excluding figures and references) 3. Cover letter (2-page maximum) 4. List of three references (Names and contact information)

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.
