Company Description

Join us and make YOUR mark on the World!

Are you interested in joining some of the brightest talent in the world to strengthen the United States' security? Come join Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) where our employees apply their expertise to create solutions for BIG ideas that make our world a better place.

We are looking for individuals that demonstrate an understanding of working in partnership with team peers, who engage, advocate, and contribute to building an inclusive culture, and provide expertise to solve challenging problems.

Job Description

We have an opening for a highly experienced Laser Physicist to independently guide the development, research, design, analysis, modeling, testing, and fielding of advanced laser technology and systems. You will provide technical direction to an interdisciplinary team developing and deploying state-of-the art high intensity, high energy, long and short pulse laser systems for DOE (Department of Energy) and LLNL.

This position will be filled at either level based on knowledge and related experience as assessed by the hiring team. Additional job responsibilities (outlined below) will be assigned if hired at the higher level.

In this role, you will

  • Provide strategies and direct efforts of interdisciplinary teams that research, design, develop, integrate and field or enhance in performance advanced, high-energy laser systems, high peak power lasers and high average power laser technologies, incorporating essential new physics and new technologies to meet priorities of evolving missions.
  • Guide systems design and apply system-level engineering principles to a wide variety of advanced laser design and analysis projects using novel approaches to develop operational, system, and subsystem solutions.
  • Lead integrated experiments in the fields of nonlinear optics, long & short pulse, high power and high energy laser physics or laser secondary source generation.
  • Develop complex theoretical and numerical system models needed to corroborate or anticipate experimental results that test advanced, coupled physics and modeling capability in collaboration with laboratory scientists and engineers.
  • Provide recommendations to leadership and technical team regarding project vision and strategy independently, under minimal supervision and influence technical direction for self and others, while providing technical and intellectual leadership on research and development projects.
  • Prepare and provide technical presentations and publications for internal and external audiences.
  • Advise senior management on involved technical strategies.
  • Perform other duties as assigned.

    Additional Job Responsibilities, At The SES.4 Level
    • Utilize highly advanced knowledge and expertise to guide and oversee research, design, and enhancement or development of state-of-the-art laser systems including elements that are frequently not well defined and often involve uncertain factors.
    • Apply subject matter expertise and leadership in Joule-class short pulse amplification, in hundred+ Joule-class long pulse amplification, thermal/birefringence effects, or nonlinear optical effects to further evolve mission.
    • Lead and perform highly complex and detailed signal and image analysis of extensive, highly intricate, and integrated laser performance experiments and their corresponding modeling.
    • Develop in-depth and highly complex nonlinear optics models - fiber or free-space- from their theoretical aspect to their numerical implementation potentially for massively parallel high-performance computer systems to explain the detailed and integrated performance of laser systems.

      Qualifications
      • PhD in Laser Physics, Applied Physics, general solid-state laser engineering, high average power laser technology and thermal, birefringence management techniques, short and long pulse laser physics, and/or nonlinear optics as applied to laser development, modeling, applications, and operations or related field or the equivalent combination of education and previous relevant experience.
      • Advanced knowledge of and significant experience with complex analytical, numerical modeling and experiments needed to make recommendations and lead strategies for scientific and/or technical projects.
      • Significant experience in systems design for advanced laser design and analysis projects.
      • Advanced knowledge and significant experience recommending, developing and implementing solutions to a diverse range of difficult and complex problems.
      • Experience guiding, leading, and mentoring team members.
      • Advanced communication, facilitation, and collaboration skills necessary to present, explain, and advise senior management.

        Additional Qualifications At The SES.4 Level
        • Substantial knowledge and subject matter expertise developing highly complex state-of-the-art laser systems in an R&D environment.
        • Expert level knowledge and experience in Joule-class short pulse amplification, in hundred+ Joule-class long pulse amplification, thermal effects, or nonlinear optical effects and their respective modeling.
        • Substantial experience developing and utilizing highly complex laser performance and/or laser propagation modeling codes from their theoretical aspect to their numerical implementation potentially in massively parallel high-performance computer systems.
