SAVE Isotope Production-Postdoctoral Researcher Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Application By using this feature you agree to our Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy . Details Posted: July 9, 2021 Location: Livermore, California Show Map Salary: Open
We have an opening for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join the isotope production team at the Center for Accelerator Mass Spectrometry . The isotope production team develops and applies new methods for using high-energy particle accelerators to generate radioactive isotopes in support of LLNL's national security mission. This position is in the Atmospheric, Earth, and Energy Division of the Physical and Life Science Directorate.

In this role you will
  • Design and execute isotope production experiments to meet the needs of LLNL programs including surrogate debris fabrication, tracers for National Ignition Facility (NIF) experiments, and standards for calibrating radiation detectors and mass spectrometers.
  • Develop new platforms for conducting isotope production experiments and radiochemical separation methods for harvesting radioisotopes from irradiated targets.
  • Prepare and conduct technical presentations for internal and external audiences.
  • Document research, publish papers in peer-reviewed journals, and present results within the DOE community and at conferences.
  • Pursue independent (but complementary) research interests and interact with a broad spectrum of scientists internally and externally.
  • Collaborate with others in a multidisciplinary team environment to accomplish research goals.
  • Perform other duties as assigned.
  • Ability to obtain and maintain a U.S. DOE Q-level security clearance which requires U.S. Citizenship.
  • Ph.D. in radiochemistry, nuclear chemistry, nuclear engineering, nuclear physics, or a related field.
  • Hands on experience operating and maintaining high voltage accelerators and related instrumentation (e.g., ion sources).
  • Experience fabricating targets for high energy ion irradiation.
  • Demonstrated ability to perform radiochemical separations such as ion chromatography, liquid extraction, selective precipitation, etc.
  • *Ability to perform independent research, find innovative solutions and produce significant accomplishments to complex scientific and technical problems.
  • Experience working on a research team with individuals from diverse technical backgrounds, as well as function as an independent researcher with a high level of attention to details.
Internal Number: 3743990000044599 About Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory For more than 60 years, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has applied science and technology to make the world a safer place.Livermore's defining responsibility is ensuring the safety, security and reliability of the nation's nuclear deterrent. Yet LLNL's mission is broader than stockpile stewardship, as dangers ranging from nuclear proliferation and terrorism to energy shortages and climate change threaten national security and global stability. The Laboratory's science and engineering are being applied to achieve breakthroughs for counterterrorism and nonproliferation, defense and intelligence, energy and environmental security.
