Provide technical and administrative leadership for the CLaSS Group including, but not limited to, the topic areas listed above. Exhibit creativity and ingenuity that leads to significant scientific breakthroughs in an area of applied mathematics, computational mathematics, computer science, computational science, or a related field that is relevant to the Department of Energy (DOE) and LBNL.
Secure funding for an active research and development program in his/her technical areas.
Lead significant projects and programs in the group, take accountability for results, and represent the Department and Division to funding agencies.
In addition to the above, the Sr. Scientist will:
Lead a group of staff members to maintain a recognized track record of performing independent scientific research in an area of programming languages, operating systems, communication libraries, quantum computing programming systems, and other components of an advanced parallel programming environment for scientific computing.
Be responsible for setting new research directions that are responsive to evolving computing needs of DOE science.
Organize and coordinate R&D projects and collaborations; provide technical leadership and develop strategies in support of the group's research agenda.
Work with other group leads in the division and science partners to strengthen collaborations with other scientific divisions at LBNL and elsewhere.
Communicate strategic priorities, directions, group-wide research highlights and accomplishments upward to division and lab management, as well as to program management at DOE and other agencies.
Perform personnel management activities, which include performance management, salary management, and recruitment of a diverse group that includes scientists, computer systems engineers, postdoctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate student assistants, and affiliates.
As a Group Lead, perform funding proposal development and submission, as well as conduct original high quality research, both as an individual contributor, as well as a mentor and support for these activities for other staff in the group.
What is Required:
Ph.D. in Computer Science, or related fields, or overall equivalent experience and at least five years of experience conducting original research in one or more topic areas in the CLaSS portfolio.
Established track record of research accomplishments and record of funding in these areas.
Ability to facilitate setting strategic research directions within the group, and the broader lab and DOE scientific community.
Experience with using and developing cutting edge software and hardware prototypes in a research environment.
Highly self-motivated and willing to learn new technologies.
Excellent written and oral communication skills.
Additional desired qualifications:
High level of scientific innovation and creativity.
International recognition as an authority and world leader in a relevant field.
An established, independent, and internationally recognized record of outstanding research.
Deep understanding of theory, implementation and optimization of programming languages.
Deep understanding of advanced computer and HPC systems architecture (CPU/GPU, caches, memory systems and interconnect networks), and their contributions to the overall system performance.
The posting shall remain open until the position is filled, however for full consideration, please apply by close of business on June 15, 2020.
This is a full-time career appointment, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.
This position will be hired at a level commensurate with the business needs; and skills, knowledge, and abilities of the successful candidate.
This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.
Work will be primarily performed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.

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.
