CNLS Career Opportunities
The Center for Nonlinear Studies (CNLS) at the Los Alamos National Laboratory is seeking candidates for Postdoctoral Research. Areas of interest include:
Applications of these studies to condensed matter physics, fluid dynamics, plasma physics, chemistry, materials science, theoretical biology, and computational science (e.g., neural networks, parallel computation) are being actively pursued.
Postdoctoral positions in CNLS are shared with affiliated Laboratory Technical Divisions. Interested applicants can apply by directly contacting a Laboratory Technical Staff member with similar interests or by sending a CV and statement of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have contacted a laboratory staff member or are interested to work with a specific staff member do state those details in your cover letter.
A PhD completed within the last 5 years or soon to be completed is required. Annual starting salaries typically range from $79,500 to $93,000, plus a generous and comprehensive benefit package. More information about the laboratory Postdoc Program can be found here. The Laboratory provides excellent working conditions and opportunities for advanced research. Our location in the mountains of Northern New Mexico offers a pleasant lifestyle in a setting of great natural beauty.

Graduate Student Positions
With the permission of their home institution, a few excellently qualified graduate students who have completed their course work and examinations may apply for funding to do thesis research at Los Alamos under the supervision of LANL staff members affiliated to the Center for Nonlinear Studies (CNLS). Research at the CNLS is highly interdisciplinary. The general areas of interest include condensed matter physics and materials science (both soft and hard condensed matter), fluid dynamics, chemistry, theoretical biology, and computational science. See the areas listed above.
