Postdoctoral Scholar

The Particle Beam Physics Laboratory (PBPL) at the University of California, Los Angeles, invites applications for a postdoctoral scholar research position in experimental physics, emphasizing applied and computational beam physics and applications to accelerator technologies. The position will support our research program in laser-based dielectric micro-accelerator structures. We are especially looking for creative individuals who are willing to contribute to many aspects of an active experimental effort. Experience with low-energy beams and diagnostics, optical-scale structures, and/or photonics is directly relevant. Publication quality research, conference attendance and collaboration with team members are expected. The position is available immediately and is renewable for up to three years, assuming continued funding.

The Particle Beam Physics Laboratory (PBPL) is a state-of-the-art center for research into beam physics and accelerator technologies. We offer a dynamic work environment with multiple on-campus laboratories and facilities, strong collaborations world‑wide, and a group of dedicated world-class researchers and students.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in physics, applied physics, or a related field, with specific expertise in beam physics. Experience in lasers, photonics, micro-emitters, and dielectric accelerators is welcomed, but not necessary. Candidates must have permission to work in the US. UCLA is an equal opportunity employer.

Qualified candidates should send a CV, description of their research experience, and three letters of reference to the If references are not comfortable using email, they may contact the PI directly.
